Trinity United Methodist Church holds an annual rail service

GRAND ISLAND, Neb. (KSNB) – People were able to soak up the sun while giving praise on Sunday. Trinity United Methodist Church held its annual Praise in the Square event at Railside. Church members and other community members filled the hall to enjoy a cool morning of worship, praise and prayer. It also featured a favorite – a drum session.

“We have a drum circle ministry. We call ours the ministry of joy, we go to nursing homes and so we like to start with the drums here. I’ve been drumming with preschoolers, vacation Bible schools, Sunday school classes, youth groups and so it’s just something we love to do,” said Senior Pastor Kelly Karges.

During Karges’ sermon, he preached about the Methodist community changing its beliefs and becoming open to accepting those despite their sexual orientation.

“We preach lectionary scriptures, it’s whatever scripture they give us. Right now in the Methodist Church we are divided and it is important to talk about how we are living through this,” Karges said.

The church remains divided between those who accept the LGBTQ+ community and those who welcome all, like Karges.

“I think Jesus has this radical idea that we should love others as God loves us no matter what. We are trying to spread this message.
