Who We Are

Move Button Move Button

Trinity United Methodist Church exists to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.

At the core, we believe that Jesus is the Son of God Who is fundamentally changing the world and that those who choose to follow Him are transformed into new people living the best life possible.

That's why we want to be a place where anyone can be transformed by the story of Jesus.

We want to be a church where you, your family, and our community are transformed by this amazing story.

Wherever you are in life, you matter and you have a purpose. We want to help you become the person God has created you to be. Your journey has a next step and we'll help you find it. It could start with serving, finding God's vision for your life, giving, or joining us regularly.

You don't have to take the next step alone. With a strong community of friends, you can laugh, grow, and serve with people who genuinely care about you.

Your Family.

Strong families start with solid foundations. That's why we partner with parents to help raise the next generation to become followers of Christ. Your children and teens have opportunities throughout the week to grow relationships with each other and with God. We're working so that your kids don't just know who God is, but know God.

Our Community.

We are passionate about serving the community all around us and demonstrating God's love to others. Whether in person or online, individually or in groups, within our church and around the world, we are focused on supporting and engaging in relationships that provide relief and restoration to a hurting world.

We Believe Church Happens Everywhere

It's true, we own a building where we meet for worship every Sunday - but the church is more than a building. We're a people and wherever people are meeting in the Name of Jesus Christ and serving God and others - basically wherever that transformation that comes through Christ is happening - that's church. And we believe that church can happen anywhere.

Meet Our Pastor

Hi There!

The grace, love, and peace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you!

I'm beyond grateful to be the pastor here at Trinity United Methodist Church - and I'm beyond grateful that you're checking us out and getting to know us better.

With that being said, let me tell you about myself. I was born and raised in Wisconsin – and yes, the stereotype is true, I do love cheese! I grew up in Superior, WI with my three sisters, parents, and many pets. I studied at Dakota Wesleyan University and at Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary. Seven years later and I have a Bachelor's in Christian Leadership and a Master of Divinity with a focus on Congregational Leadership.

What those degrees mean is that I love being with people - especially people who love God and love the Church. That may be the reason I love Trinity and why you might love it too: we're a community of people that love God and each other. We're working on growing deeper in our discipleship and care of others. It's my prayer that you join us in that work.

In any case, I'm here for you along with the people of Trinity United Methodist Church. If you need a prayer warrior, an advocate, a counselor, a friend, or even just someone to listen to you, we're here for you.

Until we meet, God’s continued blessings and keeping,

Rev. Thanael Certa-Werner, Pastor
