By Generous Giving

Giving Generously at Holy Trinity

Each year at Holy Trinity we invite everyone to reflect on their financial giving to church. The vast majority of our income for all we do comes from your prayerful, generous, and regular giving. Thank you! We are so grateful to you for taking seriously the commitment to financial giving as part of discipleship.

1 Kings 17.7-16 describes the encounter between the prophet Elijah and a widow from Zaraphath. Even though she has limited resources and there is famine in the land, she puts the needs of Elijah first and God blesses her with enough not just for that day, but more than enough until the land was fruitful. It is obedience and generosity that lead her deeper into God’s plans and she sees God at work in ways she could never have imagined.

At Holy Trinity it feels like we are on the edge of something new, something ‘more’, as we open up to the fresh possibilities of God for us and for our church. But financially, things are tight, and if we wish to maintain current staffing levels and keep Holy Trinity in good health, we are looking to God to bless us with enough. But what if we were to have more than enough? What new possibilities could there be for us? How would we grow and flourish? That’s where obedience and generosity come in – releasing to God what is right so he can work in new ways among us just as he did in Zaraphath.
