Confirmation Sunday Worship
This Sunday at the 9:40 worship service we will Confirm sixteen 6th & 7th grade students who have devoted a significant amount of time this school year learning about God, faith in Jesus, the Bible, the United Methodist Church, and the history of Trinity. We have the opportunity as their church family to be a part of this profound moment in these students' lives as they take a big step in their faith by making the decision to follow Jesus and by joining Trinity. 
 
This Sunday's message is, "My Lord & My God," by Rebekah Saveland.  
Earth Sunday Worship Service
This Sunday you are invited to an Earth Sunday worship service in the chapel at 7pm. Earth Sunday is recognized annually by churches on the Sunday closest to Earth Day. The service will be a time for us to give thanks for God's good gift of creation and to remember our calling to be good stewards in caring for it.
