Through your gifts, God's Word is taught; hungry families are fed; youth are mentored; our neighbors are loved on; the elderly visited and our schools' children and their families experience His love! The end result is you make an investment in eternal things and God is glorified.
"This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers and sisters. If anyone has material possessions and sees a brother or sister in need but has no pity on them, how can the love of God be in that person? Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth." -I John 3:16-18
IS IT TIME TO GET STARTED?
Take a First Step
Giving is an act of worship, not charity.
How much you give is not for anyone to determine except you and the Holy Spirit. Yet consider what God can do with your tithes and offerings when you give cheerfully, generously, and faithfully. Read 2 Corinthians 9:6-11
Don't wait. Do it this week. And when you give, take a few minutes to thank God for all your blessings! He loves you.
The Treasure Priniciple
Jesus spent more time talking about money and possessions than about heaven and hell. But too often we do not want to hear what Jesus said about money and possessions. (Read 'Why Christians Don't Tithe.) As a result, we miss out on the many blessings God has in store for us because we seek our blessing from those material things.
Jesus offers us the opportunity to embrace the abundant life. It's a life filled with hope, grace, mercy, power and love. This abundant life does not come through the temporary things, it comes through the spiritual life, devoted to following Jesus. He talks about this treasure principle in Matthew 6:19-24
Ask yourself, "Where is my treasure, really?"
Make it easy
Set up a recurring gift to be debited directly from your bank account and schedule it according to your preferences. It is convenient for you and provides much-needed consistency for the church. Collection basket offerings can fluctuate significantly from week to week, but when contributions are automated, the church receives funds on a steady, uninterrupted basis.
For the convenience of Trinity Lutheran School and Childcare Center parents you may make a payment here.
