Ministries

To help one another grow as deeply committed followers of Jesus Christ

Check out the ministries and missions that we are involved in here at Trinity Heights.

"Pray and Work"


There are innumerable ways you can make a difference in our local community and/or world. As Christians, we are called to lives of prayer and action. Benedictine monks use the Latin phrase, “ora et labora” (pray and work). At Trinity Heights, our church members actively integrate their prayer and work as they engage in ministries, charities, organizations, and other groups or inititiatives that make a positive difference at local, national, and even international levels! Opportunities to courageously work to change our world… Here are some ways you can “serve” God, joining together prayer and work to help others, our community, and our world through ministries and initiatives at, or encouraged by, Trinity Heights…

By growing closer to God through Jesus Christ, we are naturally called and inspired to find ways to serve others. There are a great variety of ways you can engage in missions and outreach in our local community and world, and these are just a few that Trinity Heights regularly partners with.

Students start a life-long adventure with Christ! The Flagstaff Youth Co-Op is a collaborative ministry between Trinity Heights United Methodist Church and other local churches. They gather regularly for events, service projects, and more!

Jubilee is a branch of the Flagstaff Youth Co-Op that is created for local teens and young adults who have disabilities. They meet every other Wednesday here at Trinity Heights.

Our family ministries are specific programs and events intended for families with children ranging from newborns through teens. 

Opportunities are being developed with today’s busy family in mind, and it is our aim to help families experience spiritual growth during time together, rather than in separate classes or groups. Find out more.

As we Joyfully approach this Lenten season we are excited to be partnering with Chinle Planting Hope. Chinle Planting Hope is an engaged organization that equips Native Americans to pursue God’s love and justice. Their teams build community with dignity and hope.

Consider the Spiritual Disciplines of the Christian faith, service and simplicity. As Trinity Heights UMC Missions committee, we’ve designed ways for you to live out these Spiritual Disciplines! These options allow you to easily and directly support Chinle Planting Hope’s summer garage sale. The proceeds of this sale will fund their projects and bring essential goods to their community. We invite you to employ these practices through blessing the Chinle Planting Hope team.

Option 1: Donate one item a day, 40 items in all, to give to Chinle Planting Hope for their annual yard sale or give ten items a day!

Option 2: Donate 25 cents each day (a total of $10) to help transport the items to Chinle.

Hold on to your donation for the time being. As we continue to take precautionary measures with COVID-19, we will update on collection date and garage sale dates!

The Trinity Heights Assistance Program helps individuals or families who are in need of financial assistance, most often in the form of gas vouchers and grocery cards. Although we try our best to meet the most immediate need, we also seek to meet those needs that will best help these individuals or families in the long term.

The monies given through the Assistance Program come from members and regular attendees of our congregation regular attendees. Although we accept donations throughout the year, a special offering is gathered every year on Christmas Eve, especially for the Assistance Program. It is with this generosity that Trinity Heights is able to reach to those in need within our own community.

Through our connections with their local leadership, Trinity Heights helps to support the ministries of Intervarsity Christian Fellowship and the United Campus Ministry at Northern Arizona University.

 

Each year, Trinity Heights pays annual apportionments to The United Methodist Church. “Together, through our connected congregations, we accomplish what no single church, district or annual conference ever could hope to do alone.” Apportionment dollars support the work of The United Methodist Church worldwide, including many designated mission and outreach funds and ministries of The United Methodist Church.

FaithWorks

FaithWorks is a locally-based charity connected to multiple churches in Northern Arizona. FaithWorks was the vision of a group of local pastors and church leaders. Their desire was to see the Church work together, across denominational lines, to do missions as Christians united by The Great Commission (Matt 28:19-20). The mission of FaithWorks is “to unite the Christian community in mission ministry through providing opportunities for education, information, and practical mission experiences locally, nationally, and internationally.” FaithWorks sends out mission teams with three areas of focus: construction/ maintenance, children’s ministry, and medical ministry. 

Trinity Heights United Methodist Church has been supportive of and involved with the ministry of FaithWorks since its inception in June, 2000. 

Flagstaff Family Food Center

Flagstaff Family Food Center is a local gem within our own community that provides nutritional meals in a safe, pleasant environment and assists children with reading, homework, and social skills. One Sunday each month, a group of volunteers from Trinity Heights give their time to the Flagstaff Family Food Center and help with preparing food, setting up for meals, or serving.

Kidz at Heart

Kidz at Heart is an international organization that helps to train adults to lead Sunday School and other Christian Educational ministries world-wide. Trinity Heights helps to support this worthwhile organization with funds, prayer, and even sending church members on mission trips to train educators around the world. In 2016, members of our church went to Tanzania, Africa, to help support, encourage, and equip Christian adults to reach children in the name of Jesus Christ! What amazing work!

Sunshine Rescue Mission

Sunshine Rescue Mission is a fantastic organization that, among other things, helps to provide housing to homeless individuals and families in our Flagstaff community. In addition to financially supporting SRM, Trinity Heights members participate in their ministry, we help to host their annual fundraiser, and we support them in other ways. 

Habitat For Humanity

We support our local Habitat for Humanity, including helping the organization to fund no-interest loans to families in our immediate neighborhoods to pay for needed improvements to existing homes, such as new roofs. Members of our church serve on Habitat teams, and others help to provide lunches for teams building homes.
