Why give?


Stewarding our resources to further God’s kingdom

Trinity Lutheran Church is committed to reaching those who are far from God, extending Christ’s compassion into a broken world, and helping each of us become more fully devoted to Jesus Christ. In short, this is what we call being a Community Following Jesus! We have the privilege of partnering with God’s work in the world by using our gifts and resources through the local church.

Thank you for your generosity in supporting Trinity’s ministries.



When you make a contribution, you are providing for every level of impact. Your giving keeps life-impacting ministry happening today and for generations to come–because it’s worth it!

As a church we’re asking ourselves, “What if we all come together and do our part?”

What if we all give to one fund out of which all the work of Trinity is supported? One fund that will provide everything from maintaining the beautiful campuses we already have, as well as provide for kids and students, weekend worship, small groups, and more. One bucket of resources that, if filled, gives us the opportunity to turn all our What ifs into realities.

The Bible instructs us to give cheerfully and sacrificially of our finances as part of our worship. We are reminded that Christ’s sacrifice for us is our own motivation to gladly sacrifice. All that we have is His anyway.  Be part of our Community Following Jesus, because it is worth it!

Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.  – 2 Corinthians 9:7 ESV


Honor the Lord with your wealth
    and with the firstfruits of all your produce. – Proverbs 3:9 ESV


We truly believe you cannot out-give God.

No one can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and money. Matthew 6:24 ESV

The Bible says in Matthew 6:24 that the top competitor for our commitment to Jesus is money. Giving allows us to demonstrate that He is more important to us than material things. As a Community Following Jesus, your gifts support all the ministries at Trinity – and change people’s lives. There is no organization with more potential to change the world than the local church!

We are truly grateful for your donation to the ministries of Trinity Lutheran Church of Mission and Shawnee!

Ways to Give

Give in Person

Giving is an act of worship to our God. Give in person at any campus during the weekend worship services. Members are provided numbered contribution envelopes. If you are visiting, use one of the envelopes in the pew so we can confirm your tax deductible gift.

Online Giving

Simple and secure. Give a single gift, or schedule ongoing donations using your checking account, debit, or credit card.

Use this option if you would like to set up an automatic online withdrawal from your account to the church (one time or recurring).
