Approval for New Ministries Granted

On Wednesday, July 10, between 9 and 9:30, Trinity received the green light from Fairfax County’s Board of Zoning Appeals (BZA) to continue our dream of expanding our mission into those necessary ministry areas that address the critical needs of the families of northern Virginia. God has been prodding Trinity to take action in this direction for a number of years. Finally, God swept away the current obstacles. Permission to proceed – granted! Here’s what this means for Trinity and the families of NOVA.

Trinity’s new permit will allow us to continue all of our current children’s ministries including Sunday School; Youth Group; Trinity Preschool; Vacation Bible School; and others, as well as our parking and shuttle arrangement with the Potomac School.  It will also allow us to have up to 99 students on campus at one time for potential new ministries such as:

      • Preschool before and after care (a la carte options for preschool academic program only, and/or before care, and/or after care)
      • Public elementary school before and/or after care
      • Summer camp for children of any age
      • Senior day programming for enrichment and wellness
      • Week day infant care in our Fellowship Building Nursery

And more …

Trinity is thankful for all who prayed, envisioned and worked to make new ministries possible. We hope that everyone in the Trinity community will prayerfully listen for God’s call to leadership or technicianship in any new ministry and share that call with your faith family.

With gratitude and praise to God for his work in and through Vicki, Karen, Shirley, William, Sasha, David, Wayne, Reba, Jim, Keith, Eileen, John, Peggy, Jeremy, Jim, Harriet, Andy, Jose, John and the leadership of Trinity Preschool. We are also grateful for the important assistance of Perry Swope, Dyana Conroy and Michael Van Atta through the Potomac School; Supervisor John Foust and Benjamin Wiles; Reverend Doctor Sarah Calvert, District Superintendent, UMC; Debbie Matz, McLean Citizen’s Association; Gary Davis of The Davis Law Firm; Jeffrey Stuchel, Walter L. Phillips; Brent Krasner and Kevin McMahan, Fairfax County Department of Planning and Zoning; Patricia Josiah, Fairfax County Land Development Services; and the Fairfax County Board of Zoning Appeals.

With gratitude to God for a promising future, we humbly give thanks. -jcs-
