Each Wednesday Night @ Trinity, we offer a home-cooked meal. We have a professional and skilled team that provides this for an affordable cost/suggested donation. If you can’t afford the costs, or it’s your first time, this meal is our gift to you!  The meal is held from 5:00-6:30 pm in Fellowship Hall. Suggested donation of $6/person, $20/max a family.    
Frequently asked Questions:  
Is this a carry-in?
Nope! This is a full service meal. 
Is this served family-style? 
Nope! We have a serving line and then you can chose where you’d like to sit in the Fellowship Hall. 
What if my kids’ are picky-eaters (or I am)? 
That’s OK! We have lots of options! Each week there is a warm meal with a vegetable side, a salad bar including lettuce and toppings and 2-3 other salad options. There is also a delicious dessert selection each week and coffee, water, lemonade and milk for beverages. 

What about food allergies? 
At this time, we do not have a gluten-free option. However, our kitchen team can share the contents of any meals that you need information on. And we have salad options every week.

Grief Group, Sept. 27-Nov. 1 -Led by Sue Burchill & Henri Wesdorp (E204)  
Have you lost a loved one to death? This experience can be very isolating, and friends often don’t know how to help. Trinity’s grief support group, facilitated by Henri Wesdorp and Sue Burchill, begins 
September 27 during TNT and provides a safe and nurturing environment with others who are in the same boat. Your loss does not need to have been recent to join – you just need to have a desire to explore and share with others. We use short video segments, discussion, and prayer as our tools. 
We do ask that you register in advance by simply calling the church office (294-7602) or emailing Sue (sue@3umc.org) or Henri (hswesdorp@comcast.net). In order to build an environment where we feel safe sharing deep feelings, we can’t add new members after the first week.
Respect Dare (Women’s Group)-Led by Nancy Alig (E203)  
The Respect Dare Group will begin a new book this fall – Love and Respect – by Emerson Eggerichs. The book is built upon the theory that men need respect and women need love, like they need air to breathe. Dr. Eggerichs uses simple examples to illustrate real life situations in relationships and then often connects those situations to the verses in Ephesians and other passages in the Bible. He also gives much practical help for implementing this God-inspired model for marriage.
DivorceCare-Led by Kristi Robison & Brandon Watts (Family Ministry Office)
This small group is to provide support, resources and encouragement for anyone going through or who has been through the process of support/separation.
