Experience an Advent that really matters at Trinity!
Advent is an important season for us. Amidst the chaos and confusion in our world, we take time to be still, be quiet, and wait for Jesus..
What is Advent?
Advent is celebrated during the four Sundays leading up to Christmas. It is a period of waiting and preparation for the coming of Jesus as newborn king.

Advent and Christmas will look different this year, but they are no less important. This season of waiting and preparation is a joyous one. At Trinity, we take that seriously.
This year we have prepared an Advent Kit for every household. We hope that you will use this kit and the items in it to fully experience the season of Advent this year. We are excited to see the magic of Advent and Christmas come alive as you prepare your homes and your hearts for Christmas.
Advent Kits can be picked up at Trinity starting on November 15.
During the week of November 15-20, you can drive by the front of the church between the hours of 2-6 PM and a staff member will come to greet you and bring you your kit.
Advent kits will also be distributed at our outdoor worship service on November 22.
We will also be mailing kits to our out-of-town families and delivering kits to others.
We want to bless you with an Advent kit this season. If you need us to mail yours, please contact the church office.
This year, our Advent and Christmas Eve offerings will be given to United Methodist Family Services (UMFS). The staff at UMFS works with high-risk children and families across Virginia. Our financial support allows UMFS to make a difference in the lives of these children and their families. During our Advent worship services, we will have the opportunity to learn a bit more about the many ways UMFS transforms people. Plus, this year, the Trinity Foundation will match up to $5,000 of your giving. Please prayerfully consider becoming an “unwavering champion,” donate to UMFS.
Will you consider giving to United Methodist Family Services this Advent? You can give online at https://www.trinityumc.net/give/
*When you give online, please be sure to choose “Advent Offering for UMFS” from the dropdown menu.
