Stewardship at Trinity Episcopal Church
Most people only think of stewardship in relation to the fall pledge campaign.
Stewardship, however, involves many more aspects of church life then
this. In fact, stewardship is involved in almost all of the aspects of the
church as well as your own life.
Stewardship, is at it's heart, what are we doing with the
gifts God gave us. Yes, our treasures (money) is part of this, but
we each have God given talents which we often take for granted. Some of us
sing, some of us are good with our hands, and others are good with their
minds. Contributing these gifts is a way of thanking God for the fact that
he gave them to us!
|The following link gives an overview of what ministries are available
at the church. Although many ministries are listed, maybe the one you
are interested in does not exist yet. Many of the current ministries
got their start because someone saw a need that was not yet filled.
Don't be shy. If you would like to start a new ministry please print
out the book and fill out the form at the end. We will forward the
idea to the rector and see if their may be an interest in starting
something new !
|Trinity also provides a way to fill out your pledge card on line. If
you are interested in doing that, click the link to the right. Generally, our
pledge campaign is in the fall, but you can fill out a pledge card
at any time. This card also allows for those who do not want to make
a formal pledge, but would like to have their contributions tracked
for tax purposes.
Some notes about
With the popularity of alternative contribution methods, the use of
envelopes has been on the decline. If you currently do not use envelopes
and would like a set, please contact the office. Conversely, if you
currently are receiving envelopes but do not use them, please let us know.
You can reach us at 215-646-0416 Extension #2
Whether you use envelopes or not we encourage everyone
to fill out a pledge card, especially if you are new to the congregation.
By filling out a card, you ensure that you will have an account number
that we can use to track any contributions you give and provide you with a
tax statement. You should always write that number on the memo line of the
your check so that we can attribute your contribution to your
account. If you don't know your account number, give us a call and
we will look it up for you.
