SPIRITUAL LEARNING

Trinity Episcopal Church is a vibrant faith family that accepts the challenge of Our Savior Jesus Christ to step out in faith, to proclaim Him as Lord, and to recognize that we are servants of God, wherever He leads and directs us.

This website is a mere introduction of who we are as a faith family, bound by our common desire to seek the truth in Christ. We hope that, as you read through the information provided, that you find that we are living out in our ministries—true and honest action in what we say, and what we are called to do, as disciples of Christ. We believe that we are called to create a community that welcomes and embraces seekers of the Lord, and to provide a sacred place where God is praised and worshipped. Through Him we are naturally drawn to live out the outpouring of His Love in serving others.

As you look through the work of Trinity, we hope that you will be drawn to a place where you are called to explore or be on your spiritual journey. Please join us on Sundays to see if this is the faith community that God has lead you to, that will enhance your understanding of Him and of you.

Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori answers the question, “If I didn’t go to church, what would you tell me to get me to visit an Episcopal Church?”

The Most Rev. Dr. Katharine Jefferts Schori, previously Bishop of Nevada, is the twenty-sixth Presiding Bishop of The Episcopal Church. She is chief pastor to the Episcopal Church’s 2.4 million members in 16 countries and 110 dioceses, ecumenical officer, and primate, joining leaders of the other 38 Anglican Provinces in consultation for global good and reconciliation. Jefferts Schori was elected at the 75th General Convention on June 18, 2006 and invested at Washington National Cathedral on November 4, 2006.

Delving Deeper

Christian Education & Spiritual Development is designed for the sole purpose of developing and sustaining our spiritual formation throughout our life stages—children, youth and adults. We are a congregation in which some of us are new to the Episcopal way of living out the Christian faith, so we offer opportunities to learn about Episcopal basics. This is for those who are new to Trinity, and those who are long time members.

All the liturgical and theological information on the site is in accordance with the rubrics and scholarship of The Episcopal Church (TEC), of which Trinity Church is an integral part.
