Our Vestry

Members of the Vestry are the elected leaders of the parish. Partnering with our clergy and staff, the Vestry manages our financial affairs, oversees policies and procedures, establishes action plans, and evolves our beautiful building and grounds. But most importantly, the Vestry cares for the spiritual and programmatic vitality our church. Through prayer and reflection, the Vestry works hard to align Trinity’s hopes and plans with Jesus’ commandments to love God and our neighbor.

Our family really enjoy the intimacy of the service in the chapel. Matthew and I both serve as LEMs and Lectors and Jay is an usher. I also help with the middle school programs.”

My faith and my family are central in my life and Trinity, our church home, both nurtures and inspires our spiritual growth through worship, fellowship, and community.

Like God's love, Trinity is a constant in my life. A constant source of strength, community, and enrichment.

Trinity is important to me because it accepts all people regardless of their background, preferences or where they are in their spiritual journey.

I want my children to grow up with a spiritual home that's bigger than our family, but small enough to nurture closeness while exploring the vast expanses of God's love. Trinity is that place.
