An Offering Mediation for You Today
(Source: Faithful, Hopeful Loving stewardship resource published by the Ecumenical Stewardship Center in partnership with the Center for Faith and Giving.) There are few things that motivate us to action like seeing an instance of gross injustice or wanton cruelty. Yet we live in a world where these very things are increasingly woven into the fabric of life.
In many ways, we have become accustomed to them. We shrug our shoulders and think, “Well, I can’t do anything about it.” Thus, we sink deeper into the quicksand of the status quo were the rich grind the faces of the poor and the strong trample the rights of the weak. We could wond3er if it
makes any difference in our world when people gather to sing and pray and give and receive each Sunday. Let us imagine today that it does make a difference – God knows it, and in the heart of our hearts, we know it too. Part of that difference comes from our giving to support the ministries of our
church and our outreach ministries.
Some questions for you to ponder or use as conversation starters: Acknowledging it is not just what we can do, it is also how we can be, ask yourself: Can I be more loving, caring, and attentive? Can I be a better listener? How can I tune in better to the
needs of others? What gifts do you have that you can add to the work of Christ? What can you do in your church
or community to show God’s love?

Who we are
We started as a home mission congregation…
of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in 1955. Trinity Lutheran Church of Bismarck acted as the sponsoring congregation. The first services were held in the current building on the 11th of March, 1956, and the rest is history.
