We are officially off and running in 2015. If you made Trinity United Methodist Church a part of your New Year’s resolutions, have I got a deal for you! If you aren’t already a member of our church, we hope you’ll make that move this year.
The Bible is filled with stories of local churches. Paul writes of the struggles, successes and faith journeys encountered by those in the early churches. Paul knew the church was stronger with everyone united and committed to Christ.
Why should you consider joining the church? For some, joining a church seems too formal or demanding. That’s not surprising in a world that looks at commitment much differently than in previous generations.
By joining a church, you’re giving a very visible sign of your willingness to commit to Christ. You’re saying that you want to be a part of this church family. Christianity is not a solitary endeavor. It is designed for us to come together and worship as a community, no matter your age, no matter your race, no matter your socioeconomic status. We are all one in the eyes of our creator.
We’re hosting a Discovery Class this month. It will give you a chance to ask questions about United Methodism, Trinity, joining the church, or ways you can get involved. (And yes, there will be snacks.)
If you have questions, please contact me at email@example.com, or give me a call at 703-356-3312.
I hope to see you there!
