Our Relation to Trinity United Methodist Church

We are proud to be an outreach ministry of Trinity United Methodist Church.  Not only are we housed in the church, but many of our teachers and staff are active members.  We echo Trinity’s belief that each child is a one-of-a-kind, unrepeatable miracle of God!

Again, thank you for your interest. 

Please call us at (614) 488-3659 or email us at if you have any questions. 


We look forward to sharing TUMPS with you.
