Interested in Serving as Trinity’s Financial Secretary?

 Susan Bozeman will be vacating the position of Financial Secretary on March 31 in order to devote her time to pursuing other opportunities. We thank her for over five years of faithful and dedicated service.

The Finance Committee has begun the process of finding a replacement for this position which is responsible for receiving and recording monetary contributions and donations. If anyone is interested in serving as Trinity’s Financial Secretary, please contact Pastor Meredith or Dennis Williams, Finance Committee Chairperson.

    For the long-term, the Finance Committee will be assessing whether these duties, as well as those of the Treasurer, should continue to be performed on a volunteer basis by a Trinity member or whether these responsibilities should be performed by a paid employee or out-sourced on a contractual basis to a bookkeeper or private company.
