Welcome to Trinity United Methodist Church                                                                                                                                                   

Dear Friends,

At our called Church Conference vote in March, Trinity UMC accepted the recommendations of the Vital Church Initiative team. This included adopting the United Methodist Church mission statement: to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world. In the recent General Conference of the United Methodist Church in Portland, Oregon, many decisions were made and some decisions were deferred. Some of the deferred decisions relate to human sexuality.

The Bishops of the church have been tasked with looking at our Book of Discipline and how it speaks about human sexuality. To many this decision was hurtful as they wanted action to be taken, and for them it prevents us from achieving our main task, to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.

It seems then until more life-giving decisions have been made we have to focus on our own walk with God, or Discipleship. A disciple is a follower of Jesus, someone who openly confesses Jesus Christ as their Savior, and learns through prayer, Bible study, worship, fellowship, ministry, mission, generosity and service, how to follow Jesus. However, there is another part to it. It's not just for ourselves, as we are called to transform the world, one person at a time.

It means that we have to serve not only in our church, but beyond its walls in our community, and recognize that our mission lies all around us in the people that we meet and in the communities we live. It's here that our actions as disciples can be put into practice so that lives can be transformed.

Jesus said, If you love one another, then people will know that you are my disciples. John 13: 35. Our mission is about love, the open inclusive love of God. We are asked in the name of Jesus to learn what that love is all about, and by his strength, transform the world.

Grace and Peace,

Rev. David Nellist, Senior Pastor

 

Trinity Staff Reflections
June 13, 2016

In reflection on the recent Orlando nightclub tragedy, our thoughts and prayers go out to the families of the victims and the Orlando community. Trinity United Methodist stands in solidarity with our LGTBQI brothers and sisters during this time of mourning, and we pray for a stronger awareness of under-represented people and their struggles in our society.
