We’re Upgrading, Join Us!
What Is God Calling YOU To Do?
For 2014 Trinity is “upgrading its network” from 3G to 4G: GOD,
GIFTS, GRATITUDE, and GRACE. From the GOD of all creation, we
receive all things, all talents, everything that is made. In
the creation story we hear, again and again, that “God said it
was good.” All of it, including us. These GIFTS are worthy of
our thanks and praise because we have not done a thing to earn
them. Therefore, we offer our GRATITUDE to the maker of all
things, the giver of all gifts. His gifts are part and parcel of
God’s GRACE for each of us, and we know them in abundance.
So it is time, once again, for us to examine our lives and to
demonstrate our gratefulness for the gifts God has given us.
Trinity Lutheran is a faithful witness to the Gospel of Jesus
Christ. We enjoy many gifts and blessings, and grace; we are
viewed as a leadership church in the ELCA because we stand among
the top 1% of congregations in size, mission support, and
worship attendance. But each of us knows we can do more, and we
know, with leadership comes responsibility: to be generous
witnesses to the love we know from God; to be faithful servants
in the use of our gifts in service to the community and larger
world; to be humble stewards of the goodness bestowed upon us.
It is our hope that you will prayerfully consider the gifts God
has given you and respond generously, with gratitude. From
Corinthians, we know, “Whoever sows sparingly
will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows bountifully will also
reap bountifully ... God loves a cheerful giver.” If you
haven’t already, please take a moment to sow bountifully by
completing an “Estimate of Giving” form. And please, consider
stepping up. You may mail in your response or bring it to any
of our worship services in the weeks ahead.
GOD, GIFTS, GRATITUDE, GRACE
