Christmas Eve Services

TLC Campus will celebrate Christmas Eve at 6:00 pm with a contemporary “hands on” service where children will make a Christmas tree ornament. Every one will be invited to sing Carols and listen to the story of Christmas as told through Scripture and a children’s story. Lapel Campus will celebrate at 8:00 pm with a traditional service that will include reading scripture, singing Hymns, and receiving Holy Communion.  Both services will close with a beautiful, heart warming candlelight service. We hope you will join us at either one of these services - or both!

2015 A New Year 

As we look toward 2015, we have a chance for new membership coming up! We will soon have the next date for Pizza with the Staff for those interested in becoming members of Trinity UMC. To go along with this, we will also have an Alpha session starting soon after we start  the new year. If you were part of the Alpha session in 2014, this is your time to start thinking of someone outside our church family to invite to attend. If you are part of the Trinity UMC family and have not taken part in Alpha, we hope you’ll consider joining this session and bring a friend. Dates will be announced soon! See Doug Coverdale with any questions.
