2020 stewardship renewal
Stewardship forms and resources
Stewardship at Holy Trinity Parish
Our parish life at Holy Trinity has always been centered around our commitment to living -- and modeling for others -- "A Stewardship Way of Life" where in grateful appreciation for all He has given us, we seek to return to God our own selfless gifts of time, talent, and treasure.
The message of Stewardship is simple:
It's all about gratitude.
It's all about God's goodness in our lives and how we can gratefully lift up to the Lord all that's important in our lives.
It's about giving back to God the first and best in all we do and all that we are.
a way of living at holy trinity
Each year, parishioners at Holy Trinity are invited to make an annual commitment to living as a Christian steward. Stewardship isn’t a program or just a way to bring in more volunteers or money. Stewardship is a Way of Living – where Christians see everything good as a gift from God.
When we choose to live as stewards, we become grateful receivers of the abundant gifts God showers on us.
We become eager to cultivate those gifts out of our loving friendship with Christ.
And we recognize that, filled with appreciation for all the abundance God has given, we have an innate need to become grateful givers of all God has entrusted to us.
At Holy Trinity, we know it’s a commitment worth the effort.
Time, talent, & treasurer
Meeting Jesus in Prayer and Worship
For each of us, time remains our most valuable commodity. During these most challenging days of 2020, we have the opportunity to reconsider how we spend our time. Prioritizing work, family, service to others, recreation, rest, and of course, prayer and worship remains central to our Stewardship Way of Life.
As Disciples of Christ, we make God the priority. We join together on Sunday to worship God and refocus our lives on Jesus Christ.
Sharing our talent with our community
Talents are the natural skills and charisms that are uniquely ours as gifts from God. Every member of our parish has been given talents from God to be used for the good of others.
As Disciples of Christ, we share the talents God has given to us through our professional work and in service to others. We recognize God’s generosity to us and return to Him by generously serving in parish ministry
Honoring god with our treasure
We are stewards – not owners – of the treasure and possessions in our care. All we have, including our money, are gifts from God. And we are responsible to use these gifts wisely.
As Disciples of Christ, we are called to make an intentionally planned and proportionate return to God. Our spending habits say a great deal about our values and priorities. Stewards follow an annual plan for honoring God with our treasure.
