A reminder to any last-minute donors…the Fort Dodge USPS is severely understaffed, and as a result, the church is not receiving its mail every day. This week it was actually delivered to the parsonage twice. Luckily the current occupant is trustworthy and brings it over to me! So, as we enter December and you plan to make your final tax-deductible charitable contribution to Trinity, you might want to mail it earlier in December so we can receive and process it for year-end. Just a thought. Thank you all for all your donations throughout the year!

Epworth UMC recently sold Rada cutlery with great success! They’re placing a 2nd order to be submitted Mon. Dec. 5th, if you’re still looking for a quality gift for someone, reach out to them. (Epworth | Marcia Smith, office | 515-573-4415 | 2025 11th Ave S, FD)


United Methodists and ecumenical friends across Iowa are invited to celebrate the ministry of Iowa Bishop Laurie Haller as she prepares to retire at the end of 2022.  Sunday, December 4, 3:00 pm at First United Methodist Church, 1001 Pleasant St., Des Moines, Iowa. The retirement celebration will include a celebrative program in the First UMC sanctuary and a reception with light refreshments following the program in the lower-level Fellowship Hall.  Music, scripture, visuals, and spoken tributes will make up the program, as well as the presentation of special missional gifts in Bishop Laurie’s honor.

We’re still collecting new or gently used backpacks for students at the high school. Please drop off in the office.

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. 
Please call the church office (515.573.3519) if you have any questions or concerns.
