All Churches are not the same!

 

Find out what makes Trinity Church "different"

We're a Creative, Diverse, Loving Community of Faith

Trinity Church  is a unique fellowship of faith formed by God's creative Spirit, which calls people from different walks of life, weaves their gifts, graces and unique stories together to form a spiritual community and then uses them to touch hearts and transform lives with the power of God's love.

 

We believe that diversity is a witness to God's inclusive Love, so we strive to be a community that is open and welcoming to all people, regardless of their religious background, social status, skin color or sexual identity.  Are you a person with lots of faith?  Great!  Are you unsure and searching?  Awesome!  Have you had previous experieces with church that have hurt you?  We understand, and we want you to know that all churches are not the same.  We are different, on purpose! 

 

We want our faith community to be a place where every person is free to experience and celebrate God's grace and unconditional love in their life without the fear of being judged or condemned.  That's why we say, "No matter who you are, or where you are on life's journey, you are welcome here."


What to expect when you visit

Walking into a new church can be intimidating and at times terrifying depending on your previous church experience. If you are considering attending one of our worship gatherings, we pray that you would take the vulnerable step and come check it out! We can't fully describe what you will experience, but at least we can try to give you an idea of what to expect.

 

On a Sunday morning you might see some people in a suit and tie or wearing a dress, while others are wearing t-shirts and shorts, and a lot of in between. We believe that God doesn't expect us to be something that we aren't when we come to worship, so we say, come as you are!  (Really!) 

 

Our simple and comfortable worship setting creates an intimate environment where good fellowship and engaging worship are always possible.  We enjoy a traditional style of worship, which features a mixture of familiar traditional hymns along with some new songs to keep things fresh, and we make good use of multi-media and a big screen to keep folks engaged in the worship experience.

 

Rev. Glen Shedlock always brings a message that challenges us to practice our Christian faith in ways that reflect the heart and ministry of Jesus.  He consistently reminds us that Jesus calls us to be God's loving presence in the world.  Not much sleeping goes on during Rev. Glen's messages, although he says it's okay if it does because the soul is always listening.

 

At Trinity Church, we don't have the fancy bells and whistles or high tech entertainment that other churches have, but that's okay, because we do have the things that every human soul longs for: 

 

Intimacy

Acceptance

Spiritual Connection

Unconditional Love
