Welcome to Trinity United Methodist Church of Charles City, Iowa!

“…Do not fear, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name, you are mine. ” [Isaiah 43:1b NRSV]  With those words God reached out to Israel through the prophet Isaiah.  What a great image–a God who knows us!  That says a lot about the God we believe in.  God is a personal God who knows you and wants you to come to know him! 

 

When Jesus was asked which commandment was the most important, he responded, “The first is, ‘Hear, O Israel: the Lord our God, the Lord is one;  you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength.'”  [Mark 12:29-30 NRSV]  But he didn’t stop there.  He continued:  ” The second is this, ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.” [Mark 12:31 NRSV]  What is the law about?  What is LIFE about?  Loving the God who loves us and loving each other! 

 

Discovering the love of the God who knows us by name is wonderful!  But that isn’t enough.  We also need to experience the love of people who know our names.  We hope that you will give Trinity United Methodist Church a chance to be that church for you!
