Worship: Sundays @ 8:15, 9:40, 11:00 am | Wednesdays @ 6:35 pm
From the Steeple to the Streets
Trinity is taking it to the streets! Did you know that each  Sunday  an average of 13,628 people gather in the Methodist churches in our region for the worship of God? Imagine what God could do if those same 13,628 people simultaneously and very intentionally took the opportunity to go and pray for, observe, and engage their communities. On April 8 , we get to find out with an event called "From the Steeple to the Streets." To learn more and to pledge your participation, click here.
Mission Box 
This week's Mission Box is for A Mother's Hope. They focus on 3 key pillars; parenting education, self-care education, and life-skills training to teach mothers healthy coping strategies to help break the cycle of abuse and neglect. In Alachua county, 1 in 9 children are subjected to maltreatment and 75% of the children removed from their homes are due to neglect or a caregiver's inability to cope. (text 2 give keyword: Hope)
