What is happening with TRIO in February?
TRIO (The Responsibility Is Ours) is all about the future of our church community. Every church member is asked to take their share of the responsibility for ensuring that our church can continue as a thriving, outward looking church that welcomes others and can continue to work towards our mission to love God and others, grow in our faith and serve our community.
What is this responsibility?
In a nutshell it is to make sure that our church has enough resources to carry out our mission. These resources: time and money, have to come from us, the church members.
TRIO so far….
The Campaign was launched on Sunday 31 January with a special presentation. Missed it? Everything is now available here on the website, including a copy of the presentation slides and an audio file of the talk that goes with them. All the presentation materials can be found here and the audio file can be found here. It follows the reading and sermon and starts at the 10-minute point.
Campaign milestones in February:
Early February – Everyone gets an information pack
Everyone is asked to make a response by this Friday 19th February.
Your TRIO Contact
Every church member has a “TRIO Contact” to guide them through and answer questions. The name and contact details of your TRIO contact are on the front of your information pack. The contacts have been fully briefed and are there to help, so do make use of them.
The TRIO campaign asks us to review:
- The time we give to service: helping with worship and all our various activities and the practical tasks that need to be done every day, every week, every month.
- The money we give to support the church financially: as a church community we must pay for our running costs and the maintenance of our church, grounds and hall.
The TRIO presentation and the information in the packs for each church member will give you a wealth of information about the church finances: What we spend the money on and the areas where we could to do more if we had more funds. It also discusses how best to contribute and the various methods by which you can give.
We’re excited about this opportunity to think about how we can each be involved with playing our part in the future of Sunnyside Church – make sure you’re a part of it!
