Trinity believes in missions very much. As in the final commission of Jesus Christ; Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” Matthew 28:18-20 NIV. We believe tromendously in the power of discipleship. We feel compelled to "go, teach and baptize." Trinity has a team whose soul purpose is to establish the needs of the community and the world in order to make disciples of the world. We do this with the whole hearted attitude found in Isaiah 6:8 Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?”And I said, “Here am I. Send me!” NIV. We are eager and ready to serve the Lord as we are called! We want the Kingdom of God to exist here on earth and we know that we play a huge role in that for the glory of God. It is entrusted to the people of God to spread His love, grace and word to everyone, everywhere, no exceptions. Matthew 24:14 tells us, And this gospel of the Kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come. NIV
Trinity sees a mission as anything that is done for the benefit of others outside of the church. This includes letting people use our facility for things such as ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages), AA and Funeral dinners. Members of Trinity also host an annual Christmas dinner, funeral dinners when needed and monthly movie night all open to anyone. VBS, (Vacation Bible School), happens for one week every July and welcomes anyone. Trinity financially contributes to a local food pantry, volunteers at the annual family fun fest, collects change every Sunday for world missions and send shoeboxes full of items to children of other countries every year. Some missions are directly through our facility, some are in partnership with other active missions. Trinity United Methodist is part of the Northwest Plains District and the West Ohio Conference, each have their own missions including world missions.
