Church Resources

As a church or not-for-profit entity, you have a vital role to play in our community and society. But it can be difficult to stay informed on the different statutes, regulations, and case law that apply to your organization.

As a Christian-based law firm in Lancaster and York counties, we help churches and non-profit organizations apply for non-profit status, organize their governance, and comply with reporting laws.

Contact us today for a initial consultation on how Trinity Law can support your organization.
