Strengths

Trinity’s overall strength comes as a result of commitment to prayer and the healing that is ours through Jesus. Our worship services are supported by a blend of traditional and contemporary music, and we have enjoyed a long history of Christ centered, biblically based sermons and teaching. Our congregation is mission-minded and engaged with a dynamic medical outreach in Nigeria. We have been blessed to support more than a dozen people called to ordained ministry over the past 30 years and subsequently believe we support the wider church through this ministry. Our members are deeply committed to each other, appreciating we hold differing perspectives on world-view issues, because of our sense of unity in Christ.

Challenges

We have grown and developed a mission mindset and we currently are searching for ways to be a more meaningful presence in our own community of Tariffville and the neighboring communities. In addition, our Youth program has been in decline for several years. This, also, is a mission outreach that we hope to revitalize. Fundamental to these outreach opportunities is the need for our own parish members to grow in understanding of their personal call to ministry. As more of us understand and utilize our gifts from the Holy Spirit, we hope to meet the needs of those we encounter.
