Welcome to Trinity United Methodist Church!
We are so glad you are here. Trinity is an inclusive, progressive community that tries to love God and neighbor. Sometimes we’re really good at it. Sometimes we’re not. But being faithful is messy and never easy.
If you want to join a group of folks who are real about the challenges, the messiness, and the beauty of following Jesus, come see us. We would love to get to know you. There’s a place here for everyone!
ADVENT & CHRISTMAS SCHEDULE AT TRINITY
ADVENT SERMON SERIES: “BELIEVE”
Rediscover the spirit of the season at Trinity UMC as we focus on believing again (or for the very first time). Our sermon series, “Believe”, will give us a chance to believe in hope, peace, joy, and love in our hurting world. Join us each Sunday beginning on December 2nd and running through December 23rd. There will be special music to kick off the series on December 2nd.
Trinity invites you to experience the Advent season with stories of second chances in our Advent study. We will be studying the book “Home for Christmas: Tales of Hope & Second Chances.” This small group study explores themes of hope, love, joy, and peace through stories of formerly incarcerated or gang affiliated men and women as they find work and opportunities for a new life through Homeboy Industries in Los Angeles. We invite to hear these stories and see how you too can experience hope anew this season. We will meet at the church library on Wednesdays at 10am, beginning on December 5th.
BLUE CHRISTMAS SERVICE
Despite the lights, the parties, and the general merriment of the Christmas season, a lot of people don’t feel very jolly. The Christmas season can bring out and amplify feelings of grief, loneliness, or fear of the future. If you’re feeling blue this Christmas, join us on Wednesday, December 19th at 7pm for a Blue Christmas service where we will lament our pain, pray for healing, and look for signs of light in this time of darkness. Join us for this simple yet powerful service.
CHRISTMAS EVE: CAROLS, CANDLES AND COMMUNION
You are invited to join us for our traditional Christmas Eve service at 5pm. We will hear the Christmas story, sing favorite carols, celebrate communion, and close the service with “Silent Night” by candlelight. All are invited to celebrate the birth of our savior with Trinity.
BRUNCH CHURCH - HOLIDAY EDITION
The Sunday after Christmas this year just happens to be a fifth Sunday, and fifth Sunday at Trinity UMC means Brunch Church. So join us on Sunday, December 30th at 10:30am for the Holiday Edition of Brunch Church. We’ll continue to celebrate Christmas with favorite carols (you’ll get to request them!), a short message, and lots of yummy foods. So extend your holiday celebrations at Brunch Church! Bring your appetite, bring a dish to share (if you can), and bring a friend.
