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.


The Afternoon Circle will meet on Monday, March 18 at 1 pm in the church library.


Community Lenten Weekly Worship and Lunch —Manly Memorial Baptist (202 South Main Street, Lexington) is once again hosting a brief worship service and lunch each Thursday in Lent, beginning March 7.  We gather in Manly Memorial sanctuary at 12:10, followed by a $5 lunch at 12:30.  No reservations required! 


Bonfire for Trinity Kids and their families at the Stanley’s farm!  There will be a hot dog roast and s’mores by the fire on Friday, March 22 at 6:30PM (March 24 rain date.) The church will provide all the food, so just bring a flashlight or head lamp and wear clothes and shoes you don’t mind getting dirty. This is going to be a great family event so mark your calendars. Many thanks to the Stanley family for hosting!  Please RSVP to Paige no later than Wednesday, March 20 with the number that will be attending.


Fifth Sunday Potluck–Our fifth Sunday potluck lunch returns in 2019.  We’ll break bread (and casseroles and veggies and desserts) together after the 11:00 a.m. worship on Sunday, March 31.


Shenandoah Preschool Registration–Shenandoah Preschool would like to invite TUMC members with pre-school age children (ages 2-5) to register for the 2019-20 school year.  The registration fee is waived for Trinity Members!  Interested families can visit anytime between 9:00-12:30.  Please contact director Rebecca Saunders (463-7195, ) to make an appointment.

Remember your neighbors in need–please bring rice or pasta for RARA’s food pantry during the month of March. 


The Outreach Offering For March Will Benefit UMCOR–Together, we reach children, families and communities who have experienced devastation in the wake of disaster.  Please make your check out to Trinity with UMCOR written on the memo line—thank you.


RCHS is looking for volunteers to help with mock interviews!  Mock Interview Day is an essential part of preparation for RCHS seniors. During the Mock Interview, all students receive a grade for their interview based on a written evaluation by the many volunteer interviewers from our community: lawyers, nurses, human resource managers, law enforcement officers, retired teachers, small business owners, bankers, parents, retired CEO’s, and many more.  Our interviewers emphasize the value of a positive, approachable attitude and the importance of exposure to proper interviewing principles and techniques.  We are so grateful for the support of our community for this important endeavor. If you are interested in helping with this event on March 27th, please contact Lisa van Ravenswaay at 463-6150, at


The new church directory will go to press in April!  Deadline for submitting new photos, emails, phone numbers and addresses is March 31.  Please send your updates to  Thank you.
