I'm New

Welcome to Trinity!  We're glad you're here.  We know it’s not always easy to visit a new church.  We hope this information will make it easier for you to join us for our Sunday worship service and to become involved within the life of our congregation.  We have updated our information to reflect the changes that have been made due to COVID.

Our worship service is at 10:30 a.m. on Sunday mornings.  We offer both an in-person option as well as a virtual option.  The service is live streamed and also recorded so it is available later.  More information is available on our on-line worship page.

We periodically offer an informational class for prospective members where you will be able to learn more about who we are as Christians and as United Methodists here at Trinity. During the first session, we will get a chance to get to know each other and also discuss “the Basics of the Christian Faith and Methodism.” You will be able to meet others who are on a similar journey of faith growing and faith finding.  For more information, please contact the church office.

Below you will find some frequently asked questions to help you find your way around.

You can find directions via Google Maps here. Or visit, HERE and scroll down.
There is a parking lot right next to the building, off of Continental Street. Please pay attention to the signs. The parking lot entrance and exits are one-way. If you are visiting the church for the first (or second) time, you are welcome to park in one of the visitor spots.
Please enter through the main sanctuary doors, which are at the front of the building, close to the parking lot. If you need a ramp, please walk past the sanctuary doors to the ramp at the Grace Chapel doors. If you enter via those doors, the sanctuary door will be on your left.

Our parking lot has handicap spaces as well as a space for “first time visitors.” There is a ramp at the Chapel door entrance, to the right of the Sanctuary door. Inside this entrance is a lift with instructions for contacting the sextons who will operate it for you to have access to the fellowship hall. You do not need the lift to enter the sanctuary which will be on your left. We also provide large print bulletins and hearing devices as needed.
Our worship service is 10:30 on Sunday mornings. In addition to our in-person service, we also offer both a live stream of the service, as well as a recording that is available following the service. Details can be found on our on-line worship page.

Welcome to Trinity! We are so happy you are interested in becoming a member of the church. Membership explorations are available multiple times throughout the year for all those who are interested in becoming a formal member of our community of faith. This is also a wonderful opportunity to learn more about the church. We encourage people who feel ready to take this step to call or email the church office at 413-737-5311. During these sessions we discuss the history of Methodism and Trinity United Methodist Church. You will learn more information on current ministries and initiatives of the congregation. Any questions those in attendance may have will be answered. During these times together refreshments will be provided and an interesting tour of our church’s facility.

Baptisms need to be scheduled ahead of time with the pastor. In addition, since members of the congregation are making a commitment to those being baptized and those being baptized (or their family members) are being asked to make a commitment to the church, there needs to be a prior connection between those being baptized (and their family in the case of an infant) and the congregation. Baptisms usually take place in the midst of a regular worship service. In the Methodist tradition we baptize infants, children, youth, and adults.
