Do you have plans to expand your horizons this year?  Maybe meet some new people, start some new hobbies, or practice better health?  Check out the following programs and plan to join us!!


Baby Brigade - Looking to meet other young parents who are home with their little ones?  Want to grab some exercise with another parent pushing a stroller?  Trinity UMC wants to help you make these connections and build bonds between our young families in Spartanburg. Call Patti Hall (585-4884, ext. 14) or email her for all the details!

Beginner Sewing Classes  -  We have offered Beginning Sewing Classes many times over the past years and are always interested in starting a new one. Call 585-4884, ext. 14 and leave your contact information to be put on the list for our next class.  Class size is limited to 10. Our next class will start in January 2020.

Sewing Community -  If you have some sewing skills and want to be surrounded by fellow enthusiasts, come join us! We will meet on Sunday afternoons, from 3:30-5:30 PM.  Bring your own machine, supplies, and project.

Knitting - A knitting group is now meeting on Tuesdays from 1:00 - 4:00 PM in the library.  Everyone, regardless of skill level, is welcome to attend.  This is open knitting (bring your own project) or come if you want to learn how to knit.  Another group meets once a month on Thursdays to knit prayer shawls.

Walk in the Gym - Our Christian Life Center gym is open for walking Monday through Thursday, 9:00 AM until 4:30 PM. This is a great location to walk safely without regard to weather conditions (hot or cold).  Ask a friend to join you!  (If coming in the late afternoon or on a school holiday or during the summer, please be aware that our Children's Center may be using the gym.  Call ahead to be sure the gym is available).

Yoga  - Our Yoga classes are held on Monday nights beginning at 5:45 PM - 6:45 PM.  Taught by Joy Jakubchak, this "joyful yoga" is very relaxing and perfect for any level student, including beginners.  Cost is $7.00 per class.  Bring your yoga mat and a beach towel.  Contact Patti Hall (585-4884, ext. 14) for more information.

Book Exchange - a bookshelf has been set up in the hallway outside of the sanctuary (between 4th and 3rd floors) where you can Take a Book, Leave a Book.  We encourage everyone to check out the selections!

October 2019

A Beginner Knitting Class will be start on Thursday, October 3, at 2:00 PM in the church library.  This first meeting will be to introduce the new knitters to each other and show what supplies will be needed.  The first class will begin Thursday, October 24 and continue each week from 2:00 - 4:00 PM.  If you or someone you know would like to join us, please contact Patti Hall at 585-4884, ext. 14

We will be taking a tour of the Billy Graham Library in Charlotte on Thursday, October 17.  We will leave at 9:00 AM, travel to Charlotte, take the tour of the library and home, eat lunch onsite, and tour the gardens before returning to Spartanburg.  The tour is free but you will need to bring spending money for lunch, any purchases you may wish to make at the book store, and any donation you wish to leave. You also need to plan to wear comfortable walking shoes.  To register, contact Patti Hall at 585-4884, ext. 14.  We need to know who is coming to arrange transportation.

A fun "road trip" will be Saturday, October 19, 2019 to Belmont, NC.  This will feature antique and boutique shopping in several locations, lunch out, and fun and fellowship with other Trinity members and friends. We plan to take the bus if enough folks are interested. Please let Patti know that you are going so transportation can be arranged.
