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.
 
 
 

Kits for Conference
It’s time for our annual kits for conference collection.  This year, the United Methodist churches in Virginia are focusing on hygiene kits and cleaning buckets.   Last year we collected 112 kits!  Can we do more this year?  Bags and instructions are available in the sanctuary!  Return your kits to the sanctuary on or before Sunday, June 5.  Financial donations are also welcomed!  Make your check out to Trinity and designate it “Kits for Conference.”  Thank you for your generosity!

3:00 p.m. each weekday.
 

 

For the Outreach Offering in May, Trinity will collect funds for the Virginia Annual Conference Offering, which will support the following ministries:

  • Wesley Theological Seminary’s Doctor of Ministry program for chaplains, developed following the events of 9/11 as the seminary committed to serving U.S. military chaplains in new and deeper ways. This annual conference offering will directly support scholarships for this program. US Military Chaplains from all participating branches receive 100% tuition scholarships. 
  • Shade and Fresh Water – SFW provides care, protection, and life skills for at-risk street children in Brazil.
  • Street Children Ministry – SCM reaches out to families in Cambodia, who were displaced by the government and provides schooling for children, clean drinking water, and spiritual and mental support.
  • Leadership Development Young Methodist in Vietnam– Through the partnership,  leadership development programs are being hosted to empower the youth of the nation, who consist of 70% of the country’s population.
  • Mozambique Theological Education (T.E.E.) – A long-lasting partnership with the United Methodists in Mozambique to provide theological training to pastors and laity of the churches.
