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. Note:  A new class will begin in February 2019!

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 4:00 - 6:00 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.

Needlework Kneelers Stitching Group  - A group of volunteers meets  every Wednesday at 4:00 PM in the library to stitch on the needlework kneelers. We welcome newcomers anytime and will teach you what you need to know. Come join 

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!

January 2019

The Leisure Committee will meet on Wednesday, January 23 at 12:00 Noon at II Samuels Restaurant to plan upcoming events and activities.  Please share any ideas you have for Leisure events at Trinity.

Feburary 2019

File It, Find It is a class designed to help you set up a simple filing system for your home.  You will learn what to keep where, how to keep it,  and what you need for an emergency.  You will actually make files to take home.

Mama Mia - our very own Lori Lee is in the Tryon Little Theater's show so let's make plans to go see her on Saturday, February 16 at 2:30 PM. The bus will leave at 1:30 PM from the church parking lot.  Tickets are $25 (unless we have enough for a group rate) and there will be a slight charge for transportation.

The Beginning Sewing Class will start Feburary 17th at 6:00PM.  This class is held in the Bible Study Classroom on the third floor. There is no registration fee, but along the way, you will need to purchase sewing supplies.  There is also a limited number of sewing machines so it is best that if you have one to bring,  you use it.  Please contact Patti Hall for more information. This class will run for several months.
