Welcome to Trinity Ecumenical Parish

We are varied in our backgrounds, but one in faith.

Trinity Ecumenical Parish is affiliated with the Episcopal Church, the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, and the Presbyterian Church USA. We welcome Christians from many other backgrounds as well. We look for God at work in every person and we are committed to respecting and understanding one another. We seek to walk side by side as we follow Jesus Christ and serve all people in Christ's name.

Our Mission

We believe that God has called Trinity Ecumenical Parish into being in order to show the world that followers of Jesus Christ can come together from many backgrounds, forming a faith community where diversity is accepted and differences are not allowed to divide us. We are loving, serving, learning, and growing together as we fulfill our common calling to care for our neighbors, our community and the world in the name of Jesus Christ.
