The Shabach Worship Arts is a program of the Ronceverte Charge of The United Methodist Church. Under the leadership of the Discipleship Teams of Trinity UMC and Elizabeth Chapel UMC, the Shabach Worship Arts series encourages intentional faith formation and development through various art forms.  In January, we celebrated Jesus during our Winter Praise Festival. 
 
February is fine arts month in the Shabach Worship Arts series. On February 15th beginning at 3:00 PM, Trinity United Methodist Church will host a paint party afternoon by Ross Hanna studios, with Sandra Schmocker leading the class. It doesn't matter if you've ever painted before, you will have great results. Participants will have step-by-step instructions and will complete a 16 x 20 acrylic  canvas painting of a cross and Easter Lily scene. All materials will be included  and provided for this class. All you have to do is show up and have a great fellowship afternoon!

The Martin Luther King Jr. Male Chorus is a group of forty-four men, both clergy and lay leaders, from twenty-six denominationally diverse congregations in West Virginia. They sing both contemporary and traditional African American gospel music that they share with diverse audiences throughout the State of West Virginia and the Mid-Atlantic region of the USA. The MLK Jr. Male Chorus has traveled to large and small congregations across the State of West Virginia as well as many other locations Including Yonkers, NY; St. Louis, MO; Columbus, OH; Winston-Salem, NC; Roanoke, VA and Washington, DC. The MLK Jr. Male Chorus has carried its music to elementary schools, high schools, prisons, senior citizen centers, hospitals, reunions, and corporate gatherings. The Chorus has participated in Multi-Fest of West Virginia, the Appalachian Children’s Chorus Holiday Concert, the Third District Annual Conference of African Methodist Episcopal Churches, the U.S. Postal Service’s ceremony honoring Randy Moss and the Black Heritage Festival in Clarksburg. The group has been showcased at the Mountain State Forest Festival in Elkins and the West Virginia Governor and First Lady’s “Joyful Night” celebration. They have been instrumental in raising funds for non-profits like Boling, Inc. In Lewisburg and Manna Meals in Charleston. In 2006, the MLK Jr. Male Chorus worked in partnership with twelve arts groups to money for Hurricane Katrina victims who were in West Virginia as a result of the disaster.
