Where we serve- making a difference


Everyone is welcome!

If you're searching for ways to build relationships between neighbors, spread compassion, offer healing and hope, you've found it. We follow Jesus in serving others, but you may have another reason. That's ok. You are most welcome to volunteer for one or more of our many projects. You do not have to be a member or even a regular participant of Trinity UMC to join us in making a difference in our neighborhood and around the world.

Crop Walk
In March of every year, we step out with hundreds across Sarasota for a 5 mile walk to raise awareness and funding to fight hunger through Church World Service. CWS is passionate about ensuring sustainable access to proper, nutritious food, supporting more than 2,200 local hunger-fighting groups across the U.S and around the world, including All Faiths Food Bank right here in Sarasota.

Florida United Methodist Children's Home
The Florida United Methodist Children's Home was established in 1908 to provide a home for orphans and other children that had nowhere else to live. Today it serves as a diverse ministry with two campuses (Enterprise and Madison) that include residential, therapeutic group, foster and emergency shelter care. The Home also provides independent living assistance and a community child care center. We take an offering for the Children's Home on 5th Sundays.

Operation Christmas Child
Every November, we partner with Samaritan's Purse to provide shoeboxes full of gifts for children in developing countries.
