Immigration & Migrant Crisis Resources

A spiritual community in the Christian tradition where everyone is welcome.

Celebration Service on Sundays at 11am.

Welcome to Trinity
United Methodist Church

As a spiritual community we seek to follow the teachings of Jesus, who calls us to love one another, to reach out to those who are in need, and to grow deeper in our journey with God. Here at Trinity, seekers, pilgrims, saints and sinners explore faith and doubt, justice and Jesus, peace and praise, as we journey together in the familiar and mysterious.

COVID Guidelines for In-Person Worship:

.
The congregation's Leadership Council has established guidelines for our return to in-person worship.
.
It is encouraged that all those attending in-person worship will have been vaccinated and boosted.  The windows will be open so that there will be additional circulation (which means you may wish to dress warm).  The regular Zoom worship link will continue to be available for those who want to participate via online.
.
Masks are optional but encouraged. Persons who are wearing a mask will be allowed to sing.  Social distancing guidelines will continue to be followed.  Every other pew will be designated for seating.  The balcony will also be available for those wanting greater isolation from others.
.
It was the hope of the Leadership Council that by adopting the above plan that we could retain the welcoming and inclusive nature of our community and provide a way for everyone to worship.  We ask for your understanding and compliance. These parameters are fluid and will be reviewed and revised as COVID risk levels continue to be monitored.  Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.
