Story Highlights

Are financial resources another of the many blessings God has given to be used in the ways God intends? Or is money simply our own property to be used as we see fit? How is a committed Christian meant to benefit, invest, give of this gift which God gives us freely? Trinity Fort Worth invites all comers to spend Wednesday evenings in May looking at the spiritual practice of taking care of the financial resources that God has placed in our care.

From creation God has given humankind every good gift that is needed for life, health and joy. We often feel the joy of receiving the many blessings God has given us, and yet there is no more confusing area for most people than money. As stewards, our role is always to take care of God’s resources and we will look at a variety of ways that we can strengthen our practice of stewardship. A light dinner will be provided at 6 p.m., and childcare will be available for children up to age 5.
