Description

Strengths

 Trinity was founded 175 years ago; prior to the Civil War. We have tremendous history and remarkable resilience. we are a small, dedicated, and active parish with a strong desire to grow. we partner with head start and other community services. we are located in Lawrenceburg, IN just 30 minutes from Cincinnati. The area has much to offer our new vicar.

Challenges

While we have an extremely loyal core membership we are getting a little older and have lost a few of our oldest folks in the past two years. as a response we want to attract more young families. To that end we have a committee working on establishing a Sunday school program and we are hiring a part-time instructor. as a result we are beginning to see an uptick in attendance and have high hopes going forward.

Comments

 Trinity is a loving and special place. Most all of our members found their spiritual home at trinity after searching unsuccessfully elsewhere. to experience trinity is to become devoted to trinity. our last vicar loved trinity so much she stayed for 25 years!
