Located in the West Side of Downtown San Antonio, Texas, the bilingual multigenerational congregation of La Trinidad extends today throughout Bexar County and beyond.
La Trinidad UMC continues its historic identity as a missionary church, strengthening families, children, youth, students, and new arrivals with diverse ministries offered in English and Spanish.
The Get FIT (Families in Training) program is a preventive program aimed at averting Type II diabetes, obesity, and sedentary lifestyles for school-aged children and their families.
The program is offered throughout the academic year at various school districts, and in the summer as a one-month youth summer camp. Get FIT integrates nutrition, physical fitness, and character education to not only support the physical needs of students and their families but also facilitate the healing of the mind, body, and spirit.
Get FIT's goal is to transform the lives of people in medically underserved, rural communities. The program focuses on actively engaging community members and stakeholders in the planning, designing, and delivery of services and programs that meet the unmet needs of their community.
Get FIT is currently offered in Batesville, Cotulla, San Antonio, Santa Rosa, and Uvalde. Enrollment is free and open year-round on a first-come, first-served basis. If you are interested in bringing Get FIT to your school or finding a program near you, call the Get FIT manager at 1-800-959-6673.
We are bilingual congregation.
A Wesley Nurse is a faith-based community nurse. The professional practice of the Wesley Nurse is not limited to the physical dimension of medical needs; rather, it includes a mind, body and spirit holistic approach.
Programs and services include:
- Health education
- Individualized diabetes education
- Diabetic supplies
- Referral assistance
- Facilitation of resources
- Exercise classes
While the Wesley Nurse program is a component of Methodist Healthcare Ministries' ecumenical outreach and located within churches, it does not teach a set of denominational beliefs.
All members of the community are welcome.
