Christmas at Trinity

Celebrate Christ’s birth at Trinity. We will have four in-person worship services on Friday, December 24, for you and your family.

We also will livestream our 6:00 and 8:00 PM services for our online congregation.

Advent/Christmas Offering

4:00 PM Family Service

(This service will be OUTDOORS and includes Kids’ Christmas Pageant)

We are so excited to share with you a reimagined Christmas pageant that focuses on telling the Christmas story using kits that will be provided and all voices singing our favorite Christmas carols! 

 The pageant will take place during the 4 PM Christmas Eve Family Service outside in the parking lot.  Families will sit together spread out in the parking lot. We will serve hot chocolate and cookies. 

Bring chairs and blankets to sit on.

All are welcome at this service. It is designed to help families worship together and experience the magic of Christmas in a shorter, kid-friendly environment.

Advent Offering

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 once again be matching a portion 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.
