Mission Statement: Believing we are all God’s children, we seek to serve others, to be effective witnesses, and to transform lives for Jesus Christ.

What makes TMC special…

TMC is a family, a praying family, a growing family, a family seeking to love God with all our hearts, with all our souls, and with all our minds. We strive in every decision and action to love our neighbors as Christ has loved us.

We are primarily an older congregation which dedicates our time and resources to helping all ages. Our ministries include supporting those who struggle with the health issues associated with aging as well as many community ministries touching those of all ages. From the homeless and outcast to providing meals and support to children in underprivileged homes.

The children, teens, and young adults in our congregation receive individual attention and love with disciplining from our most mature Christians leaders.

Our worship services experience the presence of the Holy Spirit with a ‘singing congregation’ led by excellent musicians (piano, organ, and guitar), talented choir, and spirit filled worship leader. The music is primarily traditional but with a mixture of contemporary . The prayer time, led by our pastor, is truly a time of communion with our Father filled with lifting prayers for others.

We are a growing church but we are saving a seat for you.

Where should I park? Is there handicapped parking available?

There are three entrances to the church: front, side, and back with parking located on al three sides of the building.  Handicapped parking is available near the front and back doors.

What should I expect for the worship service?

Our worship services are primarily traditional with a mix of contemporary.  For example, we usually open the service with more contemporary praise/worship songs but always include a couple of traditional hymns during the service.  We follow the traditional Methodist liturgy of such as Lighting of Candles and Affirmation of Faith but also include the fellowship time of Passing the Peace.

Do you serve Communion?

Yes, Communion is a special time at our church and is typically offered once a month (first Sunday) in addition to special services.  However, during this time of transition to the Global Methodist Church with interim Pastors we are offering communion once a quarter.

What should I wear?

There is no expected dress code and members wear a variety of styles, all very appropriate for church, but vary from casual to business dress attire.

Is there Children’s Church or a Nursery available?

We have wonderful facilities with separate rooms for youth, children, and nursery along with loving teachers always prepared to serve when we have visitors attend with children.  All church members who teach or care of these children are trained in “Safe Sanctuary” policies.

Is the church available for events (i.e., weddings, funerals, etc.)

Yes.  Our church facilities are available for special events to our members and on occasion for community service events.  A request form must be submitted and approved by the Chairman of the Trustees to schedule these events.

How do I become a member of the church?

Those interested in becoming members of the church should discuss this with the Pastor.  Our church follows the membership process consistent with the Global Methodist Church which includes both Profession of Faith and Transfer from another church.

Our Church History

Trinity Methodist Church began as South Lenoir Methodist in 1905, located on Underdown Avenue.  The original wood frame church was added on to and remodeled numerous times until 1966 when the decision was made to build a new church building.  That same year, the “Old Keyhole House Property” on Seehorn Street was purchased.

A few years later, the congregation voted to change the church name, and in 1973, South Lenoir Methodist Church officially became Trinity United Methodist Church. Construction of the new building began in October 1974 and the first service was held on April 23, 1975.  Eight
years later the mortgage was paid in full.

A new grand piano was donated to the church in 1994, and a new organ was purchased in 2006.  In 2004, Trinity became a station church with a full time pastor.  Before that, Trinity was on a charge with Mount Oive United Methodist Church.  Also in 2004, a small parcel of land was purchased. 
In 2005 Trinity celebrated it’s 100th birthday.
