Trinity’s Ministries

Trinity UMC is the place where we worship the risen Christ, nurture our faith, and reach out to the world with love, charity, and justice.   These ministries are just the beginning of what God is inviting us to do.

Trinity’s Youth Group will meet Sundays at 9:45 AM in the classroom on the top floor. All 6th-12th graders are invited.  Come join your friends each Sunday morning for juice and snacks while we play fun games and talk about our week.  As we get further into the school year we will be doing activities away from the church like breakfast trips or recreational youth trips.  We encourage all to come as you are and join as much as possible! Let’s have a great year!


New Member Classes Pastor Joe will lead a 3-session series of classes for those who are interested in becoming members of Trinity United Methodist Church.  Running Sundays, November 4, 11, and 18 at 3:00 p.m. here at the church.  We’ll cover the ministries of Trinity UMC, our denomination, as well as how United Methodists relate to other Christian denominations.  All are welcome!


 Join Pastor Joe for a weekly Prayer and Bible Study on Mondays, from 10:30 to 11:30 am in the church library. Each week we will focus on the scriptures that will be used for the next Sunday.  We’ll prayerfully consider what the scripture says and means, and how the Spirit of Christ might be speaking to us in the scriptures.   Bible experts and Bible beginners are all welcome.


Trinity Church Conference—Sunday, October 28  Each year in the fall, Trinity UMC must formally approve the salary for the pastor for the upcoming year and approve the church members who will be serving in church leadership positions. We also give thanks to God for the ministries of the past year and pray God’s blessing on the ministries for the year ahead.  We’ll do all of this at our Church Conference on Sunday, October 28, at 4:00 p.m. in the sanctuary.  All members of Trinity (confirmation age and older) are members of the Church Conference and can have voice and vote.


Please bring CANNED PUMPKIN for the month of October for RARA’s food pantry.  Donation baskets are in the Narthex and the hallway downstairs.


Randolph Street UMC invites you to participate in its 154th anniversary celebration beginning with a concert on Saturday, October 27 at 4 pm.  The Good News Gospel Singers and Victorious Praise will perform.  The anniversary service will begin at 11 am on October 28 followed by lunch in the fellowship Hall.  For more info, call 463-7417.


The Outreach Offering for October will benefit Rise Against Hunger.  Rise Against Hunger is an international hunger relief organization that distributes food and life-changing aid to the world’s most vulnerable, mobilizing the necessary resources to end hunger by 2030.  From the implementation of sustainable community development projects to the meal packaging program that harnesses the passion of local volunteers, RAH strives to make a global impact on hunger by building resilience, self-sufficiency and empowerment among the communities.  

On Sunday, November 11 from 2:00 p.m. until 4:30 , Trinity UMC will join with Lexington Presbyterian at their church to create and package family-sized containers of rice, dehydrated vegetables and spices, which will provide 15,120 individual meals. Folks of all ages can participate.
