Butterfly Ministry

Welcome to the Trietsch Butterfly Ministry!

We are a family of different creeds, backgrounds, ages, and abilities with one unifying commonality: radical Love and the yearning to grow in our relationships with each other and with God.

Here we support and uplift one another physically, intellectually, emotionally, and, most importantly, spiritually. We challenge each other to be better stewards of our unique gifts and abilities so that we may be a blessing to our friends, families, and our communities.

Sunday Butterflies

Sundays @ 9:30am

The Trietsch Butterfly Ministry is a slower paced, inclusive environment for adult individuals with unique gifts and abilities. We find creative ways to grow our faith and share our gifts through handcrafted art projects, missions, games, worship, and developing lasting friendships.

We offer weekly Sunday School from 9:30-10:45am filled with fun, educational activities that focus on the joy of knowing Jesus and implementing his teachings in our everyday lives.


Online Butterflies

Sundays @ 12:30pm
Wednesdays @ 10pm

Can't join us in person? That's okay! We gather together every week on Zoom to share about our lives and how God is at work wherever we are. You can also join the Butterfly Ministry Facebook Group at https://www.facebook.com/groups/tmumcbutterfly.

If you have questions about our online events, contact Van Nguyen at vann@tmumc.org.

Safety Information

Background Checks

There is nothing more important to us than protecting your sweet kids and creating a safe space for spiritual growth. We require that all adults involved in Children or Youth Ministries, including staff, childcare workers, and volunteers, submit themselves for a background check as a safety precaution.


MinistrySafe is a safety training program that all volunteers (including teenagers), staff, and childcare workers are required to complete and renew every 2 years. MinistrySafe was created to help ministries meet legal standards of care and reduce the risk of sexual abuse using tools and technology tailored to fit the needs of churches, camps and ministry programs.
