Community and Family Resources will be hosting a Mental Health First Aid Training for adults on Wednesday, May 18. It will be free and fully virtual. Please contact Morgan Struchen at (515) 832-5432 or at if you are interested in participating.

Wasn’t it fun to see our graduates in worship yesterday? It just warms my heart to see the potential in each young adult! I pray that each will go out to make a difference in their God chosen fields and create an impact in this world! Please join me in prayer for them!

A couple of graduation celebrations yet to attend …

   Brady O’Brien would love to see his Trinity family at his graduation open house! It will be at his home (2505 22nd Ave N.) on May 21 from 1-4 pm.

   Elijah Yates appreciates his Trinity UMC connections! You are all invited to his open house at his home (518 S. 29th St.) on May 21 from 4-7 pm.

We typically wear green for St. Patrick’s Day in March. May is Mental Health Awareness Month, and so there will be a walk around Fort Dodge city square and library from 12-12:30 PM. Feel to wear green as that is the color for Mental Health. This event is sponsored by Community Health Center of Fort Dodge and is free.

Please add to your prayers:

  • JoAnne Becker, who is in the hospital, recovering from hip surgery. 
  • Clif Ellerbeck as he returns home from the hospital in Waterloo (hopefully today or soon).
  • Paula Mehaffy, Peggy’s sister, who is going home from the hospital in Burlington – and for her family making tough healthcare decision
  • Remember that our church won two trophies in the Frontier Days parade last year??!

    We want to do it again! The theme this year is “The New Frontier”. The date is Saturday, June 4.

    Ideas (thus far):

    1. A praise band on a float, singing contemporary music.
    2. Stage technology in a home/office environment.
    3. Stage on half of float an older time church sanctuary and on other half the new techno sanctuary
    4. ??
    5. ???

    That’s all we got!  - The Outreach Team needs your help with IDEAS please!!!

    Any other TUMC Shirt orders?  They are great shirts!  We are getting close to being able to making another order!   Please let Ruth Babbitt know ASAP.

    The rationale for postponing is so Bishop Laurie and the Appointive Cabinet can respond to the delay of the General Conference to 2024 before district conferences. Adding meetings between now and those could directly affect the attendance, and we encourage everyone to join.

    The fall Town Hall's subject matter will be information about the deployment process and the formation of circuits. This information isn’t likely change much between now and the fall.

    There will be time at the 2022 Annual Conference to hear a report from the Circuit team director and appointive cabinet about the process and the positive impact so far.

    An accurate and up-to-date medication list in your wallet can help with all these issues. Many individuals have an interest in having a wallet medication card. These are now available at Trinity United Methodist Church. PLEASE STOP BY THE OFFICE FOR YOUR FREE MEDICATION CARD. Play it safe and make sure you have your medication list with you at all times.

    The Church has some at home Covid test kits from Webster County Public Health available.  Easy to use – spit in a bottle and call UPS for pick-up. These are free and we can deliver upon request. You may need a cell phone to register the kit and an email address to receive the results. If a person, or family member, needs help with that, we can assist.  Call the church office to request if needed.

CDC changes and what that means for Trinity UMC

We want to create an environment where people can come to worship our Lord and Savior and feel safe while being in our facility.

Activities in our facility will follow the same guidelines.

  • The mask guidelines for Trinity have bee lifted as the COVID-19 infection rates for Webster county are dropping and are under 5%. Masks are still available at the doors if you want to wear one. No questions asked. We do encourage everyone to get vaccinated and boosters. Choir will resume and we will be singing “lustily and with a good courage”1.
