I have been receiving information that our hours were incorrectly stated. Apparently, people have been pulling an OLD article written in Montpelier Bridge, and this was written in 2009! At that time, we WERE open 10-4, and before I became webmaster to this site, this OLD historical article was the ONLY thing that was on our supposed page. It was written right after we opened, and the information was just loaded there.
Today, I went to this document, and REMOVED the old hours, and changed them as needed. I added the changes in RED, and my intention is to add this document into the Thrift Store Submenu, and i will also edit the ministries page so that this document is NOT telling people the wrong hours.
Thank You for your Cooperation, support, and for letting us know so we can make the necessary changes!

Today, I have added additional information from the Current Thrift Store Page, and have transitioned Store Policies over to the TUMC site on trinityvt DOT org. There is still work to do, but a good portion of the menu system has been updated to accept the content from BBDC, and we will continue to update information, adding additional pages to the Thrift Store TOP menu, and we will also make changes to the website footers as necessary to accommodate the change(s) requested.
Some Functionality may not appear yet, or may need to be edited as we work to implement relevant content from the BBDC domain. I ask for your continued patience, prayers, and support as I work to transition the content over to this site. We will be adding content in sections, as time allows!
We are PLEASED to announce that the Trinity Community Thrift Store is NOW Accepting VENMO Payments! This will now give patrons another option when Checking Out at our Register.
To Use This Service, Download and Install the Venmo App from the appropriate App Store (Apple or Google Playstore) and when checking out, select:
TUMC Trinity United Methodist Church
(Please allow for me to confirm acceptance of your payment, as it may take a few seconds for this to occur - If you are asked for a code, please let me know and I will give it to you at checkout)
Thank You for your continued patronage and support!
Trinity Community Thrift Store is in the midst of making changes that will bring the Thrift Store Website from buddy-baker.com/store to Trinity's website. This way, Store Website content will reside here on TUMC's website, and can be better managed under ONE domain, rather than two. Over the next few months, you will see content moving over to TUMC, and transiting away from BBDC.
I have also accepted the additional responsibilities that will allow me to assist the Church, The pastor, and the community with their web presence online! This will give me what we SORELY need, and that is an updated website, with current information, which can be added to the site quickly, and we can also make sure that our website is providing the best information possible.
Additionally, it will give us an opportunity to evaluate what is needed, wanted, and we can then add functionality to the website that will give us the best site possible :)_
In Closing, it is an HONOR to serve Trinity United Methodist Church in any capacity that I can, and with the additional role as Associate Webmaster, I can not only serve the community as Director of the Thrift Store Ministry, but I can make sure that we have the BEST website we can, and also learn new things as we move forward :)
