Community Outreach

Mohawk Valley Trinity UMC is committed to enhancing the quality of life in the communities around us. Through our own programs and other local programs, volunteers have opportunities to share their gifts and talents and show the Love of Jesus.

Faith Furniture is an outreach ministry of Mohawk Valley Trinity United Methodist Church, which is located on Hospitality Row, 140 Eagle Street in Utica, NY.

Faith Furniture's mission is...

To provide the basic needs of as many people as possible by providing low cost furniture.

Our Ministry Team at Trinity helps extend the love, comfort and compassion of Christ to those in need of a hot cooked meal. The team cooks and/or serves a meal on the second Saturday of each month down at Hope House, but other days can be arranged. 

"I was hungry and you gave me to eat. I was thirsty and you gave me to drink. As long as you did it for one of these the least of my brethren, you did it for me" Matthew 25:41

 

1. You can bring your coffee into the sanctuary.

Okay, I know it might seem weird that I'm listing this first on the list, but after struggling to get my family out the door and to church on a Sunday morning, I sure to appreciate this! I can definitely focus better on the sermon and what's going on in worship if I'm not suffering from caffeine withdrawal.

2. THE BAND.

If something was going to be #1, this might just be it. Worship services at Trinity are contemporary and we have a rock band. And it's good! If you're not sure you could do a church with a rock band, I suggest listening to some of the Christian radio stations for a few weeks. The energetic, uplifting tunes are a great way to begin the week.

3. The emphasis on grace. 

4. Family-friendliness.

5. Little kid-friendliness.


Why didn't I put "little kid-friendliness" under "family-friendliness?" If you have little kids, you know why!   

My husband and I tried out dozens of churches before we found Trinity United Methodist in Whitesboro. I'm not kidding - dozens. Ask our kids. It really annoyed them.

Here are just a few things that make Trinity different.

Attending church

  6. The dress code is come-as-you-are.

You don't get extra points with Jesus if your family shows up to church looking like you all just stepped out of a magazine. And, at Trinity, we don't really care what you wear, either.

Some people like the tradition of ressing up for church, and they do.
Some dress in jeans and t-shirts so they can get ready quickly and then go about their business after service.
Some kids end up at church in their pajamas or last year's Halloween costume, because see #5.

The important thing is that you show up and you're comfortable.

7. All are welcome.

At Trinity, we don't care about your sexual orientation, 
 

About us

Welcome to Mohawk Valley Trinity United Methodist Church. At Trinity we see ourselves living on the edge of a new mission frontier for the 21st century, which starts right at the door of the church and extends across the globe. We understand that in our rapidly changing world people need to connect to God in new ways that are multi-cultural and multi-sensory. Whether you’re a spiritual seeker or a committed Christ-follower, we’ll communicate in a way that’s easy for you to understand and apply to your daily life. We believe that no matter what you’ve done or where you’ve been – you matter to God. If you live in the Utica/Mohawk Valley area, or are just planning to visit, we hope you will join us for worship. There are tremendous programs and ministries for people of all ages and stages in their spiritual journey.
