Welcome to Trinity
We appreciate your patience with us during the pandemic. While progress is being made, we still have health protocols in place from the Virginia Conference of the United Methodist Church. Our Healthy Church Team continues to assess a gradual push toward reopening. Wearing a mask, social distancing, and hand sanitation are required while on church grounds.
With mask-wearing and social distancing, the Healthy Church Team has approved the following outdoor activities with limited capacity and pre-registration required: one outdoor Sunday worship service, kids and student activities, scouting, and meetings of local nonprofits related to health.
Our typical Sunday (pre-pandemic) offered three worship services each Sunday morning: 8:15 AM (Early Service), 9:30 AM (Modern Service), and 11:00 AM (Traditional Service). We also have a weekly communion service in the Chapel on Wednesdays at 12:30 PM.
On the 2nd Sunday of the month between services, we offerd a 10-15 minute “Coffee Connections” time in the Parlor, offering guests the opportunity to meet and greet with our staff and ministry leaders and explore next steps.
Trinity Guests Feed Hungry Neighbors
Each time a new guest visits Trinity, an honorary donation is made to our neighborhood partner Feed More.
Feed More collects, prepares, and distributes food to our neighbors through its programs and Network of Agencies. It is one of the many ministry partners with whom Trinity works to make a difference in our community. At Trinity, we believe in caring for our neighbors and partnering with local organizations to do so. Your first visit to Trinity helps us do that. Thank you.
We invite you to enjoy fellowship time in the Welcome Center between our Sunday services each week. There you can enjoy a cup of coffee or lemonade, find information for upcoming events, and be greeted by some of our members—look especially for the yellow lanyards!
Our staff is here to help you. Our church office is open from 8 AM- 4 PM each weekday.
You will see all kinds of dress at Trinity. From “Sunday best” suits and ties to casual attire like shorts and T-shirts. Persons attending the Modern Worship service tend to dress more casually, while those attending the Traditional Worship services tend to dress more formally.
Regardless of what you wear, you are welcome at Trinity.
Trinity has ample parking available. We have several spots designated for visitors located in the main lot on Forest Ave.
Kids are welcome at Trinity. We encourage kids to take part in worship and we also provide nursery care for infants and toddlers.
Trinity offers different kinds of small group opportunities. We offer groups that meet at Trinity as well as groups that meet off-site. Some groups get together to study, others get together to eat, pray, and care for one another. Learn about our small groups here.
Trinity offers the sacrament of Communion (Eucharist) on the first Sunday of every month at 8:15 and 11:00 AM, every Sunday at the Modern Service (9:30 AM), every Wednesday at 12:30 PM in the Chapel, and on special Holy days of the Christian Calendar. Communion is open to all regardless of age or church membership.
During Communion, Trinity offers the option of gluten-free bread for those with allergies or special dietary needs.
We care about those with handicapping conditions. We provide wireless hearing devices and large-print Bibles. The entire building is equipped to provide access for wheelchairs. We also have a special phone number available for homebound members to use on Sunday morning in order to hear our worship service.
We have a comprehensive music program with age-specific activities. Music opportunities span worship, performance, instruction, and entertainment. Trinity currently has choirs for persons of all ages. In addition, we have bell choirs, chimes, and an instrumental ensemble. Contact our Director of Music, Charles Staples.
For Modern Worship opportunites, contact Aaron Miller.
The United Methodist church baptizes persons of any age. For those who are able to speak for themselves, anyone who repents of his or her sin, and seeks to follow Jesus as Lord and Savior may be baptized. For infants and children who are unable to speak for themselves, at least one parent or other guardian who professes faith in Christ should be present. For infants and young children, the parent(s) take vows on behalf of the child, which vows the child agrees to at his or her confirmation.
For more information on baptisms at Trinity, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please contact Pastor Hung Su Lim, Associate Pastor, if you are interested in joining Trinity, or simply check “Wish to Join” and provide your contact information on the friendship pad in the pew on Sunday morning, and Hung Su will be happy to contact you.
