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.  ​
