Trinity

A Place to Discover Faith, a Place to Practice Faith

Trinity UMC – Ewing, a Methodist church proud of our Wesleyan heritage that proudly flies a rainbow flag declaring to the world that every human is created in God's image – created as community.  We affirm that our community is stronger because of its diversity in age, race, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, and depth of both faith and doubt.  We are not a community of easy answers preferring instead to be a community that empowers every person to explore questions of faith and action in safety.  We are a faith-in-action community where individuals engage the world through loving service.  ​

Vision For the Music Program at Trinity

Her vision for music at Trinity includes broadening the musical life of the church and maintaining the welcoming inclusiveness that is characteristic of the congregation. While emphasis is placed on music rooted in classical musical traditions, the choral repertoire covers a broad range of musical influences and styles, creating diversity and enhancing worship.  She believes that music is a vital part of the worship experience both for the singer and the listener and invites anyone who loves to sing and feels called to participate in the musical life of Trinity church to join the Chancel Choir. Rehearsals are at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday evenings in the choir room. All are welcome!Music
