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.
 
 
 
United Women In Faith
As of March 2022, United Women in Faith is the official new name of United Methodist Women. This renaming is part of the refreshing of our organization that includes a new logo and an array of new and improved programs to nurture current members and welcome new women to join to put their love in action on behalf of women, children and youth. Changes are designed to address the different needs and life stages of current and new women and expand options for membership, engagement and inclusivity. Our new name aims to welcome all women who are presently members, even if their local churches have chosen to disaffiliate from The United Methodist Church, as well as women of other faith traditions who want to join.

 
 

Please bring MACARONI AND CHEESE to church during the month of June for the RARA Food Pantry. The food pantry also needs a variety of canned and boxed foods. You may drop them off at the church between
10:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. each weekday.
 
 
The monthly outreach for June will be to collect items for the Rockbridge SPCA. This is a very important need in our community. Rockbridge SPCA is a branch of the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA). The ASPCA’s mission, as stated by founder Henry Bergh in 1866, is “to provide effective means for the prevention of cruelty to animals throughout the United States.” During the pandemic, pet adoption was at an all-time high as people found themselves at home more. Once the stay-at-home orders started to slowly lift and people started to return to their everyday life, some found they did not have the time to care for their pets. As a result, SPCA branches all over the country were filled with pets whose owners were not able to keep them. This coupled with their other work of saving animals from cruel homes and situations have caused these shelters to be overwhelmed with animals and has caused their supplies to be depleted. Our congregation has a chance to help our local branch receive needed supplies to help them continue to care for the animals at the shelter. A list of items that the SPCA needs are listed below. The items most needed are the dog and cat food as well as the cleaning supplies. Please note that items need to be the specific brand requested as they are unable to accept the generic brand version unless otherwise noted.
