Stories that Move Us: To Do Justice, To Love Kindness, To Walk Humbly with God
Trinity will enjoy its own season of renewal this Fall as we welcome the following guest pastors and preachers during Rev. Bonnie’s Sabbatical. On the last Sunday of each month, Trinity members will be invited to tell your own stories of love, justice, and humility.
Our Admin Council is monitoring the ever-changing Covid landscape. In the event that Indoor Sanctuary Services cannot be held, we will hold live 10am Sunday Worship on Zoom EVERY Sunday. Our guest preachers look forward to interacting with you LIVE, whether in-person or on Zoom.
September: To Do Justice with Rev. George Hackey
Rev. George Hackey is a retired UMC minister who worships at our sister Methodist Church here in Germantown, Asbury UMC. He is a lifetime resident of Montgomery County. He served as a police officer here for 29 years before following the call of God to become a pastor. Be sure to ask him to tell you stories about being the first African American inducted into Montgomery College’s Athletic Hall of Fame and about the backpack ministry he began, the City of Jerusalem Project, and the ways he is helping Asbury UMC serve the Germantown Community.

She has been a Methodist all her life and is the daughter of missionaries to Burma, and granddaughter of a UMC pastor. She now lives in Gaithersburg with her dog, Dixie. She loves to read, sail and travel when given the opportunity. Make sure to ask her to tell you stories about all the places she’s traveled and especially about her plans for her hopeful next trip to Antarctica.
