Who we are

Trinity Parish is a family that crosses the lines of race, class, age, and stereotypes in a hope to join together in a love for God and God’s creation. We are people who are searching that come together to the table Jesus Christ has prepared for us not only for solace but for strength, not only for pardon but for renewal.

Where we come from

We come to Trinity from throughout the surrounding community. We are computer programmers, food service workers, students, college professors, engineers, plumbers, teachers, nurses, security guards, booksellers and many other things. Our parishioners roots are spread across the world.

Where we are going

We are going where the Holy Spirit calls us. We recognize this is not easy and may not be popular. We are committed to social justice and the basic human rights promised to all people in the covenants God has made with humankind.

What guides us

Trinity Parish is guided by Holy Scripture, Reason, and the Anglo-Catholic Tradition. Our weekly services of the Holy Eucharist remind us that God became Incarnate in Jesus Christ and that the Love of Christ cannot even be bound by death. The words of the prophets steer us to do justice, love mercy, and walk humbly with God. We are forever guided by the knowledge that what we do to the least of God’s people we do to God.

What drives us

We are driven by God’s Love for us and for you and the knowledge that when we look down at our hands we are looking at the instruments of Christ in the world.

We believe our church can be described in four words: praying, caring, thinking, and accepting.

 

PRAYING - this one is obvious.

CARING - We care deeply about our parish family, our communities, and the world as a whole, (acts of mercy, environmental and social stewardship)

THINKING - No blind dogma here. We like to analyze our theology and think about what it means to be an Episcopalian in today's society.

ACCEPTING - We are accepting of all people regardless of: race, age, class, sex, sexual orientation, or previous/current religious denomination.

No Matter who you are, where you come from, or where you are going you are welcome in the house God has made at Trinity.

Come as you are: jeans and flip flops or slacks and polished shoes
