This weekThis Sunday, worship at 9:30 a.m.

Continuing the celebration of the 400th anniversary of the King James Bible, the Trinity Choir will present selections from Handel's Messiah.  Using text from the KJV Bible, melodies from Messiah often come to mind when hear readings from this translation. 
Also, stay following the service to celebrate Fathers' Day with the Parish Life Ministry Team's Sundae Sunday coffee hour.


Please don't forget our neighbors on the street. New dry socks are essential for this time of year. We have many weekday requests for snacks and canned self-opening food items as well. All donations are greatly appreciated.

Thanks to Trinity 40 Mile Walkers! 

To everyone who walked, thank you so much for giving your soles (pun intended) and time to this community building, fund raising event. Please try to turn in your donations within the next week. Please clearly mark the donations  as part of 40 Miles. You can send checks to the Chruch or put the contributions in the offertory plate.

Again, thanks for everyone who walked and supported the walk with donations and encouragment!

Thank you all for your support and encouragement as we work to welcome refugees and immigrants to Central Ohio!  


The Ohio Action Circle is now centered at the Hilltonia United Methodist church in the Hilltop in Columbus, Ohio. We are working in partnership with; The Shalom Zone, the United Methodist Church, the Ohio Action Circle, Centro Esperanza Latina and several local organizations on the west side.
In partnership with Centro Esperanza Latina, we are hosting and implementing a Latino immigrant 9-week summer camp for children ages 7-13. The camp is weekdays from June 13 to August 19.
We are seeking volunteers everyday throughout the camp dates. You can join us as an individual, youth group, church/faith group, organization...whatever! This would be great exposure to the immigrant community and west side community in general.
At this point we have 2 shifts: 8:30am-11:30 am and 12:00 pm-3:00 pm. At this point you can choose whichever dates are best for you. Please consider this invitation and think creatively as far as who you can invite to assist us.
