Good afternoon!
Take a look at church events happening in the days ahead.

Trinity UMC
Join us at Trinity on Saturday at 6:00 p.m. for traditional worship in Gollaher Chapel, or Sunday at 9:30 a.m. for traditional worship and 11:00 a.m. for contemporary worship in the Sanctuary. The Arabic Sudanese Worship service is held at noon in Gollaher Chapel on Sundays.

News ::

A great way to form fellowship and community is around a cup of coffee. If you attend the 9:30 worship, will you stick around after the service to stay for coffee? And if you attend at 11:00, will you come a little early and enjoy coffee with those from the earlier service? You can catch up with those you don’t see often and exchange phone numbers and prayer requests, if you’d like. Please help our church welcome, connect and discover by sharing God’s love over a cup of coffee on Sundays between services!

The VIM Team will have a meeting on Monday, Jan. 30 at 6:30 p.m. at First Faith United Methodist Church. We will be talking about the upcoming mission trip to Kansas that is scheduled for Sunday, April 23 through Saturday, April 29. The cost is $200 per person and there are scholarships available. If you are not able to come to the meeting and are interested in the mission trip, please contact Carla Maurer at 308-383-2553.

The Big Picture meeting for all Trinity committee and team members has been rescheduled (due to the ice storm) for Monday, Jan. 23 at 7:00 p.m. in Miller Hall. In approximately 45 minutes, the pastors will discuss what each committee does so that we’ll all have a Big Picture of our 2017 ministry. Please bring finger food to share. Coffee and cold drinks will be provided!

If you took any photographs of the ice this weekend, email them to and we’ll share them to the Trinity Facebook page!

If your child is of Confirmation age and interested in joining the class, please email Molly Clark at A letter will be mailed out soon.

Did you know we’re on social media? Every morning a short prayer is tweeted out.
