Hello all, this is Karlie, webmaster of the Trinity Tower website.
As you can see in previous news posts, the General Conference of the United Methodist Church has voted not to allow marriage of or ordination of homosexual people at this time.
Regardless of where you stand on this issue, know that there are a lot of hurt LGBTQ+ people who are still United Methodists. Some are even considering suicide due to feeling rejected by their denomination (I have already had to field messages from hurt people talking about this). Please reach out to those people in love. Even if you are on the traditional side, please let them know they are welcome in your church and that you value them as people.
Moving on, there were a LOT of updates this month:
- There are a number of events happening for Lent
- The Outreach Council is initiating some worthy programs for Lent
- The Trustees are talking about an upgrade to the front parking lot garden.
- The Penn Hills Service Association is well-supported by donations from our church
The website is open to contributions from anyone in the church. If you have something you’d like to add or any comments on the website, please let me know, or contact the church office!
