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.

A message from Rev. Brett Pinder.

Our congregation has a number of worshiping constituents who fall into the CDC risk category of “over-60 with underlying health issues.”  These are the most vulnerable among us who will most likely contract and suffer greatest from COVID-19. 

As COVID-19 spreads, it is important to reduce the number of large gatherings in order to protect the most vulnerable among us and to reduce the surge of cases so our medical centers are best able to provide treatment.

Worship Services and the adult class are online only.
With the interest of the health and wellness of our congregants, and the interest of the health and wellness of our neighbors, we will be holding Sunday worship service and the adult class as online events only for the time being.  Gathering together poses too much risk of spreading the virus and so too much risk of harm to our worshiping community and to the community around us.

Food Share
Food Share will continue!  It is vitally important to continue providing access to food to those in need. 

Thrift Shop
The Thrift Shop it temporarily closed.

Spreading the News
In addition to this email, this information is going out on Facebook and our website.  There will still be others who do not receive this information online.  If you know of someone who will need a phone call, will you email Pastor Brett at BrettMPinder@gmail.com
