Sharing Our Gifts
Are we faithful stewards of all that God provides? Consider the following commentary taken from the Episcopal Church Office of Stewardship:
"Stewardship is about being grateful, responsible stewards of the gifts we receive from God. The tradition of giving back to God and to the church comes from the Biblical practice of “tithing,” which means to give back a tenth of our earnings to God (Numbers 18:26). The Episcopal Church sees stewardship as more than simply contributing money to the church; it’s also about contributing time and talents, and volunteering for ministry and mission. It’s about reaching out to build relationships from a perspective of abundance instead of scarcity."
Stewardship at Trinity is the result of parishioners contributing their time, talent and treasure. Members contribute through the commitment they make to Trinity (time), the different gifts and skills we bring and share (talent), and financial contributions to support the church's ministry (treasure). Trinity also seeks gifts from members of the community to help sustain Trinity's campus for community use.
