Support and Giving

 

 

Trinity UMC thanks all of our congregational members, family and friends for your deeply heartfelt generosity over the years.  Thanks for serving our church in so many loving and kind ways which have helped us reach many of our goals.  The unity we have shared has created…

 

One church.  One mission.  One fund.  Because it’s worth it.

 

Tithe & Offering

When you make a contribution, you are providing for every level of impact. Your giving keeps life-impacting ministry happening today and for generations to come. Because it’s worth it.

As a church we’re asking ourselves, “What if we all come together and do our part?”

What if we all give to one mission out of which all the work of the church is supported? One fund that will provide everything from maintaining the beautiful church and grounds we already have, as well as provide for kids and students, weekends, groups and more. One bucket of resources that, if filled, gives us the opportunity to turn all our What ifs into realities.

One church. One mission. One fund. Because it’s worth it.

Stewardship

The concept of “stewardship” comes from the Bible, in particular with reference to the parable of the talents (Matthew 25:14-30). The concept is this: God is the owner, and we are stewards — entrusted with the responsibility of managing the owner’s resources. We believe that everything we have is a gift from God, and therefore we are expected to use what we have to build God’s kingdom here on earth. Stewardship doesn’t just refer to our money, but all the resources we have been given, including time, talents and possessions.  Good stewards are also concerned about caring for things that don’t “belong” to us, like God’s creation, our friends and family, neighbors and strangers.

Your Prayers –  “Confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The earnest prayer of a righteous person has great power and produces wonderful results.” (James 5:16) Prayer is central to our life here at TRINITY UMC. We pray during Sunday morning worship. All church prayer requests are prayed over by the staff at our weekly meeting. For more information contact the church office.
Your Presence – “And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage one another, especially now that the day of Christ’s return is drawing near.” (Hebrews 10:25) Christian life means life in community. We believe it is important to be present in church! The community rejoices with us when we are happy, grieves and comforts us when we struggle, and directs and corrects us when we stray along our faith journey. In community we are accountable to God and to others. The apostle Paul compares the church to the body of Christ, noting that each person has an important part and none can survive without the whole (see 1 Corinthians 12). Participation in worship is important! Getting involved in a small group or Sunday School class, or participating in other church activities are other great ways to enrich your experience of Christ.
Your Giving –  “You will be enriched in every way so that you can always be generous. And when we take your gifts to those who need them, they will thank God.” (2 Corinthians 9:11) Everything we have is a gift from God, and it is right that we should joyfully support the work of God with a portion of our gifts. The traditional biblical standard is the tithe (or 10%) and we encourage tithing, but each person gives what they can. Generous giving is a blessing to the giver and to the receiver! The General Fund is used for the general ministry and mission of the church. The Building Fund supports construction and maintenance of our building and property. Designated Gifts are targeted to serve a particular need or mission, such as the youth group, camp scholarships, special offerings, missions, or other programs. Contact our office if you would like to use envelopes or track your giving for tax purposes.  Also Automatic Contributions – are an easy-to-use way to make your contributions to Trinity United Methodist Church. Simply take a voided check to the Westby Coop Credit Union, 2403 US Highway 14 (near Wal-Mart) and fill out an Automatic Payment Plan Authorization. This form lets you decide when your contribution will be transferred to Trinity’s account. For more information, contact the church treasurer, Kathy Richardson, at 647-3203.
Your Service –  “For I was hungry, and you fed me. I was thirsty, and you gave me a drink. I was a stranger, and you invited me into your home. I was naked, and you gave me clothing. I was sick, and you cared for me. I was in prison, and you visited me.” (Matthew 25:35) With these words, Jesus tells us we encounter him not just in worship, but when we serve our fellow men and women – especially those who are least and lowest. Service at TRINITY UMC means helping around our church. We depend upon volunteers to accomplish everything from preparing communion, to teaching Sunday School, to maintaining the building, to serving church dinners. Service also means involvement in missions and outreach projects. Our church provides over $ 12,000 a year to support missions including the global United Methodist Church, state, and regional projects, and our local area. Many of those projects are hands-on. We are directly involved in the Passages, Lydia’s House, Disabled Vets, the local food pantry, and other local missions events. Many of our members have participated in mission trips around the state, the nation, and the world.
Your Witness – “You will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you. And you will be my witnesses, telling people about me everywhere – in Jerusalem, throughout Judea, in Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” (Acts 1:8) The mission of The United Methodist Church is to “make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.” Followers of Jesus Christ are given the power and the command to be witnesses of forgiveness, salvation, and resurrection hope. In fact, the word “evangelism” come from a Greek root that means Good News! As United Methodists, we believe that our whole witness is important. It isn’t just what we say, but also what we do. Our lives should show the transformative power of Jesus Christ to make us better, more loving people. At TRINITY UMC, we encourage each other through sharing personal testimony, and we are excited to show and tell people what a difference God is making in our city and region through our church.
