Notes from Pastor Joey

I am excited to begin as interim pastor of Trinity UMC. My plan will be to be in the office Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday. Please note that this is subject to change due to meetings, visits, appointments, and the unexpected. If you want to talk with me, I prefer that you make an appointment. The intent is not to be formal, but I would hate to miss you if you simply stop by. I want to have time to be present with each person. My cell phone is in use when I travel, but otherwise, it is in a drawer. I plan to check my email at least once a day. I look forward to being present to you in the present!

Help for Haiti

United Methodists are working with longtime partners in Haiti to respond after a 7.2-magnitude earthquake and as a major storm approaches. The United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) is collecting donations and working on next steps to help the impoverished country, which also faces political unrest, gang violence, and COVID-19.

United Methodists are reaching out with their prayers and pocketbooks. You may go online to make a donation or write a check to Trinity United Methodist Church and write International Disaster Response and Recovery Advance #982450 on the memo line. The relief arm, part of the United Methodist Board of Global Ministries, also is in conversation with partners on the ground about next steps. “In the aftermath of Saturday’s earthquake, we grieve alongside the people of Haiti as the staggering loss of life and level of devastation becomes clear,” said Roland Fernandes, the top executive of Global Ministries and UMCOR.
