Discover Trinity

Are you thinking about Trinity or want to find more ways to get involved? During our Discover Trinity classes (Oct. 14 & 21) at 9:30 a.m. in the Chapel. 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 for only one. Childcare is available during this time. The nursery (also located in the Fellowship Building) is open for infants and toddlers. Older children are welcome to join us.

Visit umcor.org for ways that you can help those recovering from Hurricanes Florence and Micheal, the earthquake and tsunami in Indonesia and other natural disasters.
