Welcome to Trinity Episcopal Church!

   We are glad that you are considering or currently attending Trinity.  Our hope is that you will make Trinity Parish your spiritual home.  At Trinity, you will find a variety of people, a variety of age groups, a variety of programs and educational opportunities, a variety of religious backgrounds, and of course, a variety of opinions.  Somehow, all of this variety finds a home in the Episcopal Church.  This is all good because it is all about God.  

   We believe that the Holy Spirit has led you to Trinity because we are confident in this much: that He who has begun a good work in you will carry it through to completion, (Phil. 1:6).  Together, we can discover the scope of this good work and with God's help, bring it closer to completion.  Please explore this website and contact us with any questions that you may have.  Your spiritual journey is very important to us and we will do everything we can to make you feel comfortable here at Trinity.
