Our mission at Trinity United Methodist Church (UMC) is to welcome all form disciples of Jesus Christ as we gather in love, grow in faith and go out in hope to transform the world.
As members of the Reconciling Ministries Network, we at Trinity United Methodist Church believe that all persons are welcome to participate in the ministry, life, and leadership of the church. We, specifically, welcome all persons regardless of race, age, sex, family status, immigration status, socio-economic status, sexual orientation, gender identity, or ability. Further, as a community we agree to nurture relationship with one another as a means of Christian Living.
Form Disciples of Jesus Christ
We believe that becoming a disciple of Jesus Christ is a life-long process, not a one-time event. A disciple actively follows in the way of Jesus Christ and is formed through the practices of joining with others in community to love God, love others and love the world. (Luke 10: 27).
Gather in Love
We gather in love to remember that God is love and there is nothing that can ever separate from the love of God (Romans 8: 31). Our life as a community is grounded in the love and grace of God, experienced through Jesus Christ and empowered by the Holy Spirit. We gather in love weekly in our intergenerational and participatory worship on Sunday morning at 10:30 am. Our second worship experience, Messy Church meets on the third Saturday of the month form 4-6 pm.
Grow in Faith
We grow in faith together as we engage in communal and individual spiritual practices of prayer, bible study, worship, conversing with other followers of Christ, and loving others and the world through serving. John Wesley, the founder of the Methodist movement, called these practices means of grace. They are ways in which we deepen our relationship with God and experience God’s presence in our lives.
Go Out in Hope
We go out into the neighborhood in hope to do justice, love kindness and walk humbly with God. (Micah 1:8) As a group of imperfect yet loved individuals we are called to forgive as we are forgiven, to bless others as we have been blessed (Gen 12;3) and to reach out to share God’s transforming love as we have been transformed.
Transform the World
We live in a broken yet blessed world and as followers of Jesus Christ our task is to engage with the brokenness of today . As we love our neighbors as ourselves (Luke 10:27) we pay attention to what is happening around us in order to see our neighbors and recognize their needs. The world is transformed through relationship that takes time, energy and commitment as we live fully in response to God’s transformative love.
