 I am Pastor Geri Hamlen and I would like to welcome you to Trinity. We have an active, friendly church community and I would very much like to meet you, in the name of Jesus Christ.   Please join us for worship, for fellowship and for service to the world, by the power of the Holy Spirit!
 The Vital Church Initiative is an educational program designed and used by the Michigan Annual Conference of The United Methodist Church since 2011 to inspire and challenge local congregations to let the Holy Spirit move them towards renewal, renovation, and liveliness.

Trinity UMC is in the first Upper Peninsula group of churches to participate in VCI. (They were working out the kinks before bringing it this far north!) This is an example of your apportionment dollars at work here in our very own church.

If you have any questions, please contact any of the people on the teams. Their phone numbers are in the church directory, or call the office, 774-2545.
