Welcome to Trinity United Methodist Church’s Stations of the Cross!
We are so glad you are here!

Stations chosen by TUMC are strictly scriptural. We offer 10 Stations this year, including an Optional

following the arrows as you go.

you would like, to pray and reflect. This is a sacred time. A time to be separate from the world and to be
fully in the presence of God.
