Welcome to Trinity United Methodist Church
I encourage you in the strongest way to be present this Sunday when we welcome to Trinity our episcopal leader, Bishop Karen Oliveto. She was elected to the episcopacy last year after serving as the first woman pastor of the 12,000-member Glide Memorial United Methodist Church in San Francisco. She is the first woman to serve as senior pastor of one of The United Methodist Church’s 100 largest congregations. I have heard Bishop Oliveto preach three times. She is a dynamic, passionate communicator who will challenge and inspire us. Her message will be, Do You Have Love in Your Heart? The text is James 2:1-13. Invite friends to attend to meet and hear this deeply committed, spirit-filled servant of Christ.
Bishop Karen Oliveto says, "My dream is that we live into beloved community. My dream is that we live boldly as the body of Christ, and love so fully, so completely, that the neighborhoods in which United Methodist Churches stand are utterly transformed by the love that spills out of these communities.”
Yours in Christ,
