About Trinity

 

Like Episcopalians and Anglicans around the world, we at Trinity Excelsior are “people of the book,” which means we worship every Sunday using the Book of Common Prayer. First compiled in 1549, the Book of Common Prayer has been evolving ever since, both rooting us in our tradition and encouraging new words and expressions in our worship as our experience of God changes and deepens over time. 

We prize our connection to and relationships with one another. We understand that no one person knows all there is to know about God – that we need other people to learn and deepen our faith. Each of us has been shaped by life, and every person's life story has meaning that enriches us. From our youngest members to our elders, we are grateful to be connected to one another. And most importantly, there is always room for more people!

Trinity is a congregation that values open-hearted conversations that thrive on curiosity and respect difference. We believe in reason and experience, in the power of questions, in helping others, and in the possibilities of mystery. We try hard to practice deep listening, where everyone has a voice and no one is alone as we walk together in Christ.

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.  July, 22 Letter

Trinity is my church home because this community both challenges me to live into the Gospel message and provides me peace in this tumultuous world. I am inspired by the preaching and teaching, lifted up by the music, and supported by the relationships I have at Trinity.

My family chose Trinity as our spiritual home because of its warm community, thoughtful preaching, and engaging ministries. Sunday mornings at Trinity are grounding and bring us a sense of peace and joy. Participating in the life of the church stretches us in every good way.

Trinity has been my church home for 26 years. It served a vital role in ‘the village’ which nurtured my children to adulthood. I am honored to serve and support this community as it continues to nurture me.

I have been supported by Trinity Church since high school. Since then I have been growing in faithfulness alongside cherished fellow Trinitarians as we learn together how to say yes to God’s call.
