Welcome, Guests!

General Information

Welcome! Maybe you heard the call of the bells or feel something stirring in your heart. Whatever your reason for seeking out a church, we’re delighted you’ve stumbled upon our website.

Sundays 10am. You are invited to join us on a Sunday for Worship and children’s Sunday School. When you arrive on Sunday morning, a greeter will direct you to the Sanctuary and answer your questions about children, youth, and Sunday School.

New Beginnings Retreat – Whether you’re brand new to the Christian faith, or have been a life-time Methodist, this family-friendly retreat with Rev. Bonnie will deepen your understanding of discipleship. It will be a good introduction to our life together at Trinity, and a great chance to meet other Trinity folks. While anybody is welcome to take the retreat—even those just exploring faith—this is a requirement for church membership at Trinity. Child-care can be made available for little ones. To Register email revbonnie@trinity-germantown.com and write: “Sign me up for New Beginnings!”

Baptism – If you have never been baptized, we invite you to join the church through the sacrament of baptism. This is the church’s ritual of welcome and incorporation into the Body of Christ. You’ll learn more about baptism and have an opportunity to discuss this possibility with the pastor in our New Beginnings Small Group.

First Time Guest FAQ

Do you have a Nursery? Yes! Nursery care is usually provided for infants thru age 2.  The nursery is located in the Education Hallway, not far from the Sanctuary, and is in the process of being staffed by a childcare provider, parents are always welcome to use this facility. We also welcome children (and their noises) in church! You’ll find rocking chairs in the back of the Sanctuary for your convenience.

Is there Sunday School for about my kids?  We invite children to be a part of worship for the first 15 minutes of service and a children’s moment with the pastor. After that, 2 year olds–5th graders are dismissed for Sunday School or Children’s Church. Our kids also have special activities throughout the year, including Vacation Bible School, a Christmas Pageant, mission projects and more.

Is my teenager going to feel out of place? (6th-12th grades)  No! He or she will be in good company. Sermons are designed to be accessible to youth and adults. After the sermon, teenagers are dismissed for a discussion or conversation about the sermon topic until around 11:15.

Methodists like to eat, right? Guilty as charged. Join us after worship for a coffee hour with refreshments. We hope you will stay to introduce yourself to those around you. Make sure you see Pastor Bonnie and say hello.

Will you embarrass me in service? Absolutely not. It’s up to you to let us know that it’s your first time. You can be as visible or as anonymous as you like.
