When & Where
Trinity Episcopal Church
Trinity Episcopal Church is a Christ-centered community on a special journey. We are an inviting and nurturing parish family that seeks energetic and spiritual ways to put faith to work in the world.
We are a community firmly placed in the Christian tradition as expressed in the Episcopal Church. At the same time, we are a community of seekers, coming from a variety of traditions and demoninations, trying to figure out what it means to follow Jesus in the world today. We gather at Trinity because it is a place where we can ask our questions and explore the meaning of faith in our lives. Trinity is a place where we can teach our children, through word and action. Trinity is a place that provides ways to share with those in need. We may look established to some, but we are a work in progress, and we hope you'll join us on the journey.
