Becoming a Church Member

The Episcopal Church has been called “the bridge church,” for we honor our Protestant and Catholic heritage, as well as contemporary thought.  There are three guides or sources of authority for our faith:

  1. Scripture refers to the Holy Bible, which infuses our study, worship, and corporate life;
  2. Reason refers to our God-given ability to use our minds and to grow in understanding of God’s world and God’s ways; and
  3. Tradition refers to how others in the past have experienced God and celebrated their life together.

In addition to the Bible, our basic theological document is the Book of Common Prayer, which has formed Anglican thought and practice in its several editions since 1549.  We are deeply sacramental, believing that Baptism of children or adults is the door into the church, that the Holy Eucharist is the central act of worship, and that other sacramental actions mediate the grace of God in our lives.

Activities and worship at Holy Trinity Church are open to everyone, regardless of formal membership.  If you would like to be placed on the parish mailing list, simply contact us and we would be happy to add you to the list. We also encourage you to return to our site often to receive the latest news regarding our parish.

Membership to our church is open to everyone.  We encourage you to visit one of our Sunday services at either 8:00 or 10:15, meet our parish members as well as participate in our parish activities.  If you’re interested in a sense of family, worshiping God, and helping people in need, we’re certain that you’ll like what you see at Trinity.
