We are passionate about sharing Christ’s love by serving others.
As stated in the ELCA mission, “We believe that we are freed in Christ to serve and love our neighbor. With our hands, we do God’s work of restoring and reconciling communities in Jesus’ name throughout the world.” Trinity Lutheran Church serves those in need through many different outreach ministries.
Trinity Lutheran Church Foundation
Trinity Lutheran Church Foundation exists to enhance the mission outreach of Trinity Lutheran Church. It began with a bequest from the estate of Fred S. Curdts in 1996. The Foundation receives bequests, trusts, charitable gift annuities, assignment of life insurance, and property transfers—including cash, stocks, bonds and real estate that are designated for the Foundation by the donor. While the principal is retained, income is distributed through grants for the following purposes:
- For outreach in the community beyond that funded by the annual budget
- To institutions and agencies of the South Carolina Synod and the ELCA
- To members of Trinity Lutheran Church for training that will enable them to grow in Christian faith
- For capital improvements, debt reduction or a building program not funded by the annual budget
To date, Trinity Lutheran Foundation has distributed over $1.4 million to over 60 organizations. Grant applications are normally received between September 1 and October 15 of each year. Grants are distributed annually in early December. Please contact the Church Office at 864-242-5702 for any additional information concerning the Foundation.
