Welcome to Trinity United Methodist Church
Dear Faith Community,
Summer is almost here. It's time for vacation. Get away, slow down, enjoy life, go swimming, go fishing, ride your bike, hike in the woods, just be. We all need time to renew and refresh. Summer is also time when some take a break from worship.
Summer and worship go together. They are times for retreat from busy-ness. In worship we set aside time to be. It's like breathing, eating, and drinking. We need worship to be fully alive. It's time set aside to be present to the One who made us and who knows and loves us beyond imagination.
Worship is where we follow the first commandment Jesus gave us: "You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind." It opens your heart to grace and helps your faith to grow and mature. Worship is time to retreat from the busy-ness of daily life and just be with God and the people God gives to love you as you are.
Christian faith is a matrix of relationships; with the One who made and loves you and the community promises to surround you with love and forgiveness. That's why we need to worship. For faith to grow and the congregation to thrive Christians need to gather for praise, prayer, confession, receive forgiveness, hear the word of God read and proclaimed, be fed at the Lord's table, and sent to be God's good news of love and justice in the world. When we gather for worship on Sunday mornings Christ promises to meet us in the faces, voices, and touch of everyone in the congregation.
The Trinity worship team works hard to provide faithful and vital worship for you every Sunday. We're excited with the opportunity Summer presents to provide worship with a variety of music. Each service will include a blend of music led by the praise team and the organ. We're looking forward to seeing you in worship this Summer at our new service time, 10am, begining Sunday, May 26.
