A Message from Our Pastors
Welcome, New Friends! We count it a blessing to have you worshiping with us, and our prayer is that you’ve experienced the warmth and friendliness that are characteristic of our growing church family.
People of all ages tell us they feel they’ve “come home” when they worship with us for the first time. We hope you also have experienced the sense of “family” that marks our fellowship and life together at Trinity.
Our heart as a church is to glorify God through Christ-exalting worship and through seeing people become fully-devoted followers of Jesus Christ. By grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone, we are committed to help each one grow to Christ-like maturity, equipping them for meaningful service and ministry, and guiding them to discover God’s love and power at work in their daily lives.
This is a challenging but also exciting time to be the Church of Jesus Christ in the world, and we are delighted that you are considering becoming partners in ministry with us. We believe God has given us this beautiful 22-acre property as a place where we can welcome and share with people the love and new life we have found in Christ.
We see ourselves standing at the threshold of incredible opportunities to communicate the life-giving message of the Gospel with people all around us — children, students, adults, whole families — people whom God loves and for whom our Lord Jesus gave His life on the cross. And we are excited about having you share the journey with us!

A Place for You
We have never sought to be a big church. But we are committed to being a faithful church.
There’s a place for you in the life and ministry of Trinity Community Church. Your faith, gifts, and abilities can be used by God to enrich our life together as His beloved people. This fellowship of believers can deepen your understanding of God’s Word, help strengthen your faith, and prepare you for meaningful ministry through which you can show God’s love and help share with others the grace and truth of Jesus Christ.
The leadership of this church continues to be committed to building on the foundation laid by the believers of the first-century church: “They were continually devoting themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer… And the Lord was adding to their number day by day those who were being saved.” (Acts 2:42,47)
We have learned over the years that people develop an appetite for what you feed them. If a church is built around programs, that is what people will have a hunger for. If it is built on entertainment, that’s what people will have an appetite for. But if it is built on the preaching and teaching of God’s Word, then people will have a growing hunger for God’s Word. For that reason, the Bible will always be the foundation and focus of all we say and do at Trinity.
We have never sought to be a big church. But we are committed to being a faithful church. We believe that if we focus on the quality — building a strong church — then God will take care of the quantity. If God’s people are taught, challenged and equipped properly, then they will want to reach others as well. Well-fed sheep reproduce themselves. That is exactly what happened in the early church (Acts 2:47), and that is what we are seeing at Trinity — by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone. According to His promise, Jesus is building His Church here on the hill.
“Now glory be to God! By His mighty power at work within us, He is able to accomplish infinitely more than we would ever dare to ask or hope. May He be given glory in the Church and in Christ Jesus forever and ever. Amen.” (Ephesians 3:20-21, NLT)
