Discover Trinity

By Eileen Gilmer, Associate Pastor

Did you make any New Year’s resolutions? If you are like most Americans, the most common resolutions are to eat more healthfully, exercise more or save more money. (I looked up the most popular resolutions and these are, year after year, usually the top three.) Those are all noble ideals. But, what about making a commitment to church? Not surprisingly, this didn’t make the list!

I’d like to invite you to consider making this a focus for you in 2018. How? I’m so glad you asked! There are many ways to get involved at Trinity. Some are long-term and others are one-time events.

Do you like to speak in public? We would love to have you be a reader during worship. Do you have a passion for feeding the hungry? Help us with Martha’s Table Sunday by buying the bread, making sandwiches and snack bags, or delivering them. Do you have an interest in finance, administration, children or adult education, worship, or social justice? We have a place for you! God has placed a call on your heart. Trinity would love to have you live out that call with your church family.

Where do you get started? If you are thinking about joining Trinity or are interested in finding ways to get involved with the church, we invite you to join us for our Discover Trinity classes. See graphic for details:

Childcare is available during this time. The nursery (also located in the Fellowship Building) is open for infants and toddlers. We also have Sunday School available for children Pre-Kindergarten through fifth grade.

During our Discover Trinity classes you will have a chance to meet with church leaders, as well as find out about what it means to be a United Methodist and member of Trinity Church. Plus, you’ll have a chance to ask questions about Trinity or the greater United Methodist Church. We would love to have you join us for both classes but welcome you, even if only for one.

Please let me know if you have any questions. You can always reach me at the church or through my email:

I’ll see you at church!
