HISTORY OF TRINITY TOWER UNITED METHODIST CHURCH
We began as Penn Hills Methodist Church in 1957 when several families, sensing a need for a Methodist presence in the area, began holding church school classes in their homes.

The first full-time pastor was appointed the following year. At that time, worship and church school classes were held in the Penn Hills Municipal Building.

1962 witnessed a merger with the former Rock Bend Methodist Church of Homewood.

Our present structure was completed in 1963, and in 1968 our name became Trinity Tower United Methodist Church.

An extensive building addition was completed in 1999 including: administrative offices, 4 classrooms, 4 restrooms, nursery, conference\library\kitchenette, elevator, and an additional parking lot.






WHAT WE BELIEVE:  "UNITED METHODISTS ARE ...



A COVENANT PEOPLE: 
When you join a United Methodist congregation, you become a member of the total United Methodist connection. Members promise God and the congregation to uphold the church with their prayers, presence, gifts and service.



A DIVERSE COMMUNITY:
United Methodists trace their spiritual heritage back to18th-century leaders including John and Charles Wesley, Jacob Albright, Philip Otterbein, Martin Boehm and Francis Asbury.
All persons are welcome in the United Methodist Church. We are firmly committed to inclusiveness. We celebrate a diversity of people, ideas and cultures and are enriched by our broad history.



BIBLICAL IN FAITH:
United Methodists trust free inquiry in matters of Christian doctrine. Our faith is guided by Scripture, tradition, experience and reason. Of paramount importance is Scripture. For United Methodists, the Bible is the record of God's people living out God's promise.



MISSION-ORIENTED, SOCIALLY CONSCIOUS:
United Methodists are mission-oriented and socially conscious. We are aware of world events and strive to help those in need. United Methodists are one in faith and tradition with Methodist Christians around the world.



ECUMENICAL:
For generations, United Methodists have cooperated with other denominations to spread the gospel, care for those in need, alleviate injustice and foster peace. In national and interfaith groups, United Methodists reach beyond our own churches and communities to express concern and to share God's love with people of many faiths.



INVOLVED:
For more than 200 years, The United Methodist Church and its predecessor bodies have expressed concern for the worker, the sick, the poor, the orphaned, the aging, the impaired, the oppressed and the imprisoned.
Our church participates in the struggles of women, people with physical and mental impairments, and racial - and ethnic - minority persons, helping them attain equality in the church, the economy and society.
United Methodists positively influence society through responsible social action.



CONNECTIONAL:
United Methodism took form as an organized church in this country during the American Revolution. Its structures parallel those of the United States government. Church leadership is shared by executive, legislative and judicial branches. Representative bodies carry out church functions at local, regional and churchwide levels.


The highest legislative body - the only organization that can speak for the church - is the General Conference. An assembly of up to 1,000 delegates, it's composed of equal numbers of laity and clergy and meets once every four years. Delegates are chosen by regional units (annual conferences) throughout the United States and in 15 other nations.
Annual conferences respond to the needs in their regions by developing programs and ministries carrying out the work of Christ and supporting the policies set by General Conference.



EVANGELICAL:
The United Methodist Church continues its strong evangelical heritage. Within each congregation is a vital center of biblical study and evangelism - a blending of personal piety and discipleship.



...a happening people! Involved, committed, diverse, open. A people striving to be accepting, caring, hospitable and inclusive. Family and community-oriented. A people concerned about those beyond their communities, around the world. Active in mission, responsive. A people loving music, church suppers and fellowship. Initiators, with a history of creating ministries related to education, employment, health and other issues. A people fond of telling the story of God's redeeming grace.
