We, the members of Trinity Church, are a community of God’s people. We believe in a Loving God, embodied in our Lord Jesus Christ, and revealed through the presence and power of the Holy Spirit. As a congregation, we consider the following values to be core to our existence:
Worship: We spend time with God and with each other, growing in our faith, and in our relationships with all of God’s children.
“Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth. Worship the Lord with gladness; come into God’s presence with singing.” (Psalm 100:1-2)
Outreach: We support others through building mutual relationships, providing material needs, and empowering each other.
“You are the light of the world.” (Matthew 5:13)
Community: We appreciate the connections we make and the trust that grows as we share our spiritual journeys.
“Where two or three are gathered in my name, I am there among them.” (Matthew 18:20)
Open and Affirming: We welcome all people, celebrate our differences, and come together in love.
“Let us love, not in word or speech, but in truth and action.” (1 John 3:18)
We want to welcome children and youth in order to build intergenerational relationships through our faith practices, fellowship, and service.
“Unless you change and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of God.” (Matthew 18:3).
We want to engage in Social Justice in order to make changes in our society to improve life for all.
“Let what is right roll down like waters, and justice like an ever flowing stream.” (Amos 5:24)
Trinity is a vibrant spiritual community, quick to laugh and long on love!
