New Sermon Series - "WE ARE..."

Over the next three Sundays we will look at the vision statement for Trinity UMC. Who are we? and What are we about?

Our vision statement says it this way: "Unify as one in Christ to Clarify our purpose, our mission and our ministry, to Multiply our effectiveness, fruitfulness, and ministry to others for God's glory."

Come see how you can be woven into the tapestry God is creating of Trinity UMC. See how and why we are One Church - Two Locations. See how together, we can bring glory to God in our homes, our church, our community and yes, even our world!

One wrist band will be given to each donor (any amount you would like to give.) All proceeds will be placed in the Emergency Medical Fund administered by Trinity UMC and then given to the Cobb Family. The children will be Celebrating God’s Love for Trevor on August 31st during Kid’s Worship. We ask that everyone wear their bands that day. The kids will be praying for Trevor and his family. They will also be making cards to send to Trevor while he is away.
