The foundation of making disciples is meaningful relationships. To strengthen relationships Trinity UMC in Huntsville led a church-wide focus this fall called “CommUConn: Communicate & Connect.”
The month-long sermon series focused on the importance of relationships with each other and those in the community. This time of learning showed that these relationships can ultimately bring people to a relationship with Christ, and make disciples to grow the Kingdom.
Each week, worship and sermon time include activities to help us get to know each other better. Then on Sunday, August 23 Trinity UMC held the CommUConn event and saw approximately 500 people in attendance! The event featured several of Huntsville’s popular food trucks: Hot Box, Sugar Belle’s Cupcakes, I Love Bacon, Busterant and others. Attendees enjoyed a delicious lunch and live music by the Cappuccino & Christ Band. Friends and family took pictures in the Photo Booth and children played on the inflatables. Event t-shirts were available, and people were invited to sign up on the church’s new group management/membership software, FellowshipOne.
The church-wide initiative on building strong relationships continued into September with a focus of “FREEWAY: A Not-So-Perfect Guide to Freedom.” This church-wide study included a sermon series using the FREEWAY workbook; and small group study outside of worship throughout the week.
The Trinity UMC congregation is excited at the momentum that is building, and watching the Holy Spirit at work.
