Trinity believes in tithing. Since all gifts come from God, 10% of all offerings/gifts that Trinity receives are tithed back out to the community in the form of Benevolence. This money is distributed:

  • By our Social Ministry and Missions committees to international and local organizations in need of assistance to keep doing their mission and ministry work GodsWorkOurHands

Benevolence funds do not include any additional fundraising that is done by Trinity including:

  • Packaged food collected for food pantries during the Souper Bowl of Caring
  • Funds for the hungry raised through the youth’s 30 Hour Famine
  • A tithe for youth activities and ministry raised through CU Football Parking
  • Gifts collected for needy families with a Giving Tree in December
  • Casas for Cristo mission trip
  • And more!

ELCA congregations gave $1.8 billion in regular offerings last year. Where does it go? This video shares how our congregational offerings support the ministries of the ELCA and the church around the world.
