Easter 2014 at Trinity United Methodist Church


The message of Easter is powerful: death turns into life.  What seemed like an ending has become a new beginning.  The seed of hope that was planted in Jesus’ death and burial has sprouted forth with the risen Lord in new life.  

Worship the living Christ during this season of Easter and share in the good news of Resurrection.  Alleluia!
 
Please join us! Here is a complete schedule of Trinity UMC's Holy Week and Easter services and events.


Imagine No Malaria Challenge


Every 60 seconds someone dies from malaria, which is a preventable and treatable disease. 
 
“Imagine No Malaria” is a mission campaign of The United Methodist Church to save lives. 
 
Achieving this goal requires an integrated strategy against the disease.  As a life-saving ministry, Imagine No Malaria aims to empower the people of Africa to overcome malaria’s burden.  We fight malaria with a comprehensive model.  To learn more, visit www.imaginenomalaria.org.
 
Trinity’s $50,000 Challenge
 
Last fall Trinity Church Council accepted Bishop Sally Dyck’s request to become a Challenge Church for the Imagine No Malaria campaign.  After hearing about the campaign, an anonymous donor from Trinity Church pledged to match actual gifts received by the end of 2014, up to $25,000. 
 
That could result in over $50,000 to save more than 500 lives!
 
On Palm Sunday, April 13, you will be given an opportunity to pledge your financial support.  You can make a one-time gift or make a three year pledge to be received before the end of 2016. Click here for a printable commitment card.
 
Checks may be payable to Trinity Church with a memo of “Imagine No Malaria.”  If you give prefer to give online at www.imaginenomalaria.org, please indicate that you are a member of Trinity Church in Wilmette.
 
Thank you for doing your part to save lives through the Imagine No Malaria campaign.

Confirmation - The Ongoing Adventure


7th and 8th grade youth began their excellent faith adventure last October by serving in the Pumpkin Patch. In the ensuing months, they met regularly to learn about John Wesley and what it means to be United Methodist. They have traveled to other congregations to experience diverse worship styles and other faith traditions and served in a variety of ways. In the Spring, they will attend a retreat at Stronghold Castle.

'Firmin' Up the Faith' at Trinity UMC is a unique experience in learning about God, our Christian faith and the world.


Trinity Announces Online Giving Opportunities


As faithful followers of Christ and caring citizens of the world, we acknowledge Christ’s message calling us to share our financial blessings for the greater good. Our generosity is not simply giving, but giving back so that God’s work can be furthered in our community and our world, through Trinity’s healing mission work.

Help us Celebrate! Bringing in the Cross and Flame


Would you like to continue the tradition of beginning our worship services by bringing in the Cross & Flame? You can bring your family or a friend, to the sanctuary entrance as the choir gathers at 10:20, and we will get you started.

These important symbols of the Methodist Church are meaningful reminders of our Lord's presence -- through the cross of Christ and fire of the Holy Spirit. Participating in this worship ritual can be a lovely family tradition - even a way to commemorate a special birthday, baptism or holiday.
