The Gathering-Young Adult Collaborative Ministry

All young adults are invited to meet for a time of faith and fellowship on Thursday evenings at 6:30 PM at Trinity UMC, 3104 W Glendale Ave, Phoenix. Young Adult from the west Valley are invited to join together to get to know each other, form relationship and community with one another and grow in their relationship with Christ. Each Thursday they gather for a time of fellowship and socializing as well as a time to explore our faith and how we live it out in today's world.

Grief Processing Group

Grief Processing Group

The grief processing group is an opportunity to explore the many facets of our lives that can be difficult to manage. Those who are dealing with grief and loss – whether from the death of a family member, the loss of a job, or lifestyle changes related to health issues or other concerns – find this group to be a wonderful time of sharing and support. All are welcome to attend, including church members, constituents, or members of the community.

Having recently returned from visiting family, I was re-introduced to the “dry heat” we all enjoy in parts of our conference. We experienced a phenomenon called “rain,” and seeing the weather fronts move through proved to be a tourist attraction for us. While away, our thoughts were with all of those affected by the Goodwin fires, and thoughts continue to be with those affected by the fires throughout our conference and connection.

God’s Got Me

God’s Got Me

Recently, I was standing in line at a local business, when a conversation ensued between myself and another person, whose shirt had the following statement…“God’s Got Me.”

“God’s Got Me” probably has many meanings, so I’ll just leave that alone for now.

Bishop Bob shared at our most recent time of Holy Conferencing that we should be prepared to share our elevator speech of faith with those whom God places in front of us…or in line with us.
