Room for All May 19 in Noblesville
You are welcome to attend a rally at Noblesville First United Methodist Church on Sunday, May 19, at 5 p.m. sponsored by the “Room for All” Coalition. This group has formed as a result of the most recent General Conference. Speakers are Rev. Mike Slaughter (Ginghamsburg United Methodist Church, West Ohio Conference) and Rev. Adam Hamilton (pre-recorded) of Church of the Resurrection, the largest United Methodist Church in the nation.
This event will provide an opportunity to learn and dialogue about the future of the United Methodist Church.
Update from Governing Board
As you may be aware, the United Methodist General Conference recently convened to vote on sexuality and sexual practices, as well as a plan for "A Way Forward." The decision was unexpected and highly divisive. There is still much to be finalized, but it seems that a denominational divide is imminent. The exact shape of any planned division of the Methodist church is unknown, and the future is largely uncertain.
In light of this uncertainty, Trinity's Governing Board has unanimously voted to suspend conference apportionment payments. These funds cover administrative costs of the general conference. Don't worry - suspending apportionments does not mean that these funds will never be available for the general conference.
Our apportionments will be reserved in our savings account monthly. In the event an amicable solution is reached, apportionments can be paid out at that time. If the church divides, setting aside these funds now will provide Trinity United Methodist Church with the financial stability we need to continue our mission, "Growing in Love and Service Through Relationships with God and Community," in a manner that is most genuine and authentic to our congregation.

Please remove my name for membership. My belief is that God loves all people including gays. I am also leaving the city in August.
