Spring Fest 2022

We had a blast at Spring Fest!  Church families, preschool families, and neighborhood families ushered in spring (despite the cold temperatures) with inflatables, the petting zoo, gaga ball, great music, and delicious food! 

A special thank you to all who volunteered at this event!

Student Retreat Reflections

Student Retreat Reflections

During the weekend of November 12-14 Trinity Students hosted a Fall Retreat at Westview on the James in Goochland. 

Thank you to all those who made this retreat possible through providing meals, leadership and the many ways you make youth at Trinity feel welcomed and a part of our church family. 

Here’s what some of our youth had to say about their experience on Fall Retreat: 


“Well this is my first retreat and it has been everything I needed to know about my life in 2 days. I feel I
have certainly grown stronger to God and have obtained a stronger relationship with God and my peers. I
hope to keep growing a stronger relationship with everyone in the church community and with God. This
weekend has been everything I needed. Thank you for sending us here and I hope to come on more retreats
in the future.”


“God has reminded me this weekend that I am not junk. I was created in the hands of a magnificent Creator
with purpose and with love. The God of love doesn’t compare me to anyone else. He has a seat for me at his
table with my name on it. My worth isn’t determined by my grades, beauty, talents, gifts that God I know
loves me beyond measure. This weekend is just what my heart, soul and spirit needed.”


“This weekend has actually been incredibly moving and special because of what we’ve talked about. I have
actually been struggling with some serious comparison problems about my body recently and the topics we
covered were really heartwarming and relieving. The fact that I’m not alone and that God has a different
standard of measurement is so moving for me and it has helped me switch my mindset some. I definitely
look at myself through a self-loathing point of view sometimes and learning about humility and how I
should replace those self-loving thoughts with thoughts that have humility really got me thinking about
how I can change the way I see myself through God.”


God is working in the lives of our youth here at Trinity UMC. Praise God!
Thank you for all the ways you support and encourage Trinity Students!

Giving Back To Our Communities

Giving Back To Our Communities

We appreciate members from our congregation who were able to participate in Giving Back To The
Community. Additionally, we thank the local nonprofits who opened their doors and their grounds to
our volunteers early in November. Those sites where our volunteers were able to work really made a
difference with the tasks they completed. Leaders for the nonprofits graciously thanked our volunteers
for their time and effort.

On Thursday, November 4, Friday, November 5, and Saturday, November 6, our congregation had the opportunity to give time and physical support to nonprofits and churches in the Richmond area. The
time frame each day was from 9 AM until 12 NOON.

Stitchers Share Love

Stitchers Share Love

On the morning of October 29th Sherando UMC, on the Staunton District suffered a devastating fire.  Their sanctuary and church building were destroyed. 

Trinity has sent the congregation 100 prayer squares and a beautiful banner for their current worship space.  These were made available by our Stitchers Ministry.  We were in conversation with the District Superintendent, Rev. Doug Forrester, before we sent the items, to make sure this gesture was appropriate.

They were thrilled to receive our gifts and will present them on November 14, “Sherando Day” on their district. 

Doug Forrester was delighted to hear from us, as our church is his home church.

This loving gesture was made on behalf of our church to a congregation experiencing deep grief.

We are grateful to our Stitchers for all that they do for so many!
