Dear Trinity family,

I pray for you a wonderful and safe Thanksgiving holiday next week. It will look differently for many but is still a moment to mark for gratitude to God for blessings. I saw a survey today which noted that the vast majority of shoppers would gladly trade any Christmas presents for the chance to see family this particular year. I hope that percentage will grow to 100% someday. This would mean all families are reconciled with one another, the intensity of the COVID-19 pandemic has passed, and we are able to be with those we love, and include those with no where to go.

This year, find creative ways to see or talk with your family. Prioritize the health of your loved ones. While prioritizing physical health might mean you don’t gather in a large group, mental and emotional health means you will talk with each of your family members, and have meaningful conversations and let that not be a casualty of this year. Observe common sense protocols and give thanks to God for life.

I give thanks to God for all of you.

If you haven’t turned in your pledge commitment card, please do so -

Commitment cards are also available on the pews in the Sanctuary, in Vivion Hall, church office, in the Narthex, and at the Welcome Center.  You may give by mail, bank, or online. We can receive cards anytime. Please call Tanya in the church office if you have any questions. We rely on your giving to be able to continue to fund the church ministry. 

May God bless you this season of the year,
Pastor Tommy

The Youth Ministry Re-launch Team has been working throughout the end of summer and fall to help give shape to a new ministry focus and a fresh start for our Youth Ministry. They have crafted a new purpose and value statements which demonstrate both an understanding of the culture of a healthy youth ministry and an alignment with the culture of Trinity United Methodist Church as a whole. With their guidance we are looking forward to launching a new chapter in Youth Ministry at the start of 2021. Please continue in fervent prayer for this vital ministry.

3 Options for Worship on Sundays

1.   In-Person on the Trinity Campus @ 10:30 a.m. Wear a mask, practice physical spacing, and worship in our sanctuary or Vivion Hall depending on space.

2.   Live on Channel 6 @ 10:30 a.m. Please enjoy our TV broadcast from home if you feel health-compromised, are sick, or would like to wait longer. We love being able to offer this option!

3.   Live on Trinity’s Facebook Live. This option guarantees you experience the worship service from Prelude to Postlude, and it can be seen from anywhere you are in the world!

Let us pray
