December 2015 Calendar

Trinity UMC made YouTube!  At our October 4 Fall Ministry Fair, we were videotaped and down-loaded to YouTube.  All you have to do to see and hear us in worship and in fellowship is to go to YouTube.com.  Enter Trinity UMC Iron Mountain, and click on the little magnifying glass.  Listen to the choir, Children’s Time, Reception of Professing Members, Time of Quiet Reflection, and serving communion.  See the other activities the church is involved in at the end of the video.  It’s fun to be on the Internet.
Behold, how good and how pleasant it is when the faithful dwell together in unity.    Psalm 133:1


Eat, Stay, and Pray—Community Prayer Meeting, Wednesdays, 5:45 to 6:15 p.m., starting September 16.  This will be an ecumenical prayer opportunity in the Sanctuary.  A chance to pray to God.  To listen for the Spirit of God.  To be together in the hope of Jesus Christ.  It will be open to our community meal guests and available to all the folks at Trinity who are not able to make it to church on Sunday mornings…and for anyone who wants a chance to pray in community during the week.  If Sunday morning worship is a chance to get closer to God, then check it out and see what God can do on Wednesday nights!

“Prayer is not asking.  Prayer is putting oneself in the hands of God, at his disposition, and listening to his voice in the depth of our hearts.”                                             –Mother Teresa

During the School year, we enjoy two worship services.  Early worship is at 8:00 and later worship is at 10:30.     We strive to make this worship experience a blend of  traditional/contemporary music.  We seek to experience the presence of God in a sacred and faithful posture of openness and devotion.   A powerpoint projector is used to make Scripture and songs easy to see.   Also provided are activity bags and activity bulletins. In the Overflow area, above and to the rear of the sanctuary, are a table and rocking chair so that parents with fussy children can still participate in the service. Children ages 4 through 3rd grade may choose, after the Children’s Time, to leave the sanctuary for Junior Worship.

Special services during the rest of the year  include: Christmas Eve (2 services: family and communion; both are candlelit), Ash Wednesday, mid-week Lenten services, Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, Easter, Confirmation, All Saints, children’s Christmas program, choir cantata, and others.

What Do They See in Him?

Jesus takes us in and then sends us out.

 Jesus is the ultimate in Peer Pressure.

 Servanthood:   The family business for the brothers and sisters in Christ

 Jesus is the stairway to heaven.

 Jesus has healing that’s contagious!

 Jesus is the ultimate truth-teller and soul saver.

 Sacrifice is NOT a four-letter word.

 Jesus may not tell you what you want to hear.

 Jesus creates equal opportunity discipleship.

 Jesus loves me, this I know.
