Trinity is a member of the Florida Conference of the United Methodist (UM) Church. The Florida Conference is a large, diverse grouping of 647 churches with countless ministries under its authority. The beauty of being a member church is that we are “connected” to all UM churches across the globe, for that connection works as an advantage to strengthen the denomination.
Through the connectional system, we have many resources at our fingertips. Here are a number of resources that members and viewers may find helpful:
The Florida UM Conference is the governing body of all United Methodist Churches in the Florida Conference. This is a link to the conference website https://www.flumc.org. The site is fairly comprehensive with information to answer most all questions. If not, they are just a toll-free phone call away at (800) 282-8011.
Helpful to church leaders, this website features short videos which portray the struggles congregations face, as well as informational videos designed to educate folks about the denomination and its inner workings. https://www.chuckknowschurch.com
