Strengths

Trinity sees itself as a strong community of members.  Over one third of members surveyed cited the people of Trinity as our biggest strength. Trinity prides itself on its openness and welcoming spirit for all.  Trinity is recognized as having one of the most high-quality music ministries in the area. We have a core of dedicated and energized volunteers who devote countless hours each week to making great things happen - both through the many programs at church and in the community. Trinity currently sponsors more than forty ministries and social groups, most of which are led by the laity.

Challenges

Trinity's membership is aging and we have had decreased attendance over the last several years.  Our budget has dwindled but savings are still healthy, however we have found reason to draw down on them over the past few years to cover expenses. A broader array of members must be engaged in the ministries to ensure their continued existence.
