Trinity is…

– a radically inclusive community where all are welcome. Really, we mean it. No exceptions!

– a congregation affiliated with both the United Church of Christ (UCC) and the United Methodist Church (UMC). If you come from either denomination or another Christian tradition, you will find many celebration elements that feel familiar while you explore new avenues for connecting with the divine in yourself and others.

– an intentional community that affirms and celebrates LGBTQIA+ people and their families. Learn more about our UMC Reconciling commitment, and our UCC open and affirming affiliation.

– a creation-centered community which celebrates the divine mystery in all of creation. We teach that divinity permeates all things and that humanity is created as an original blessing. We seek to continually celebrate the divine mystery present throughout the holy gift of all creation. Learn more about Creation Spirituality

– a spiritual community where questions are welcomed, diversity is valued, creativity is nurtured, peace is cultivated, and life is renewed!

– a people that values respect for one another regardless of differences. We seek to create a community centered in generosity, authenticity, reconciliation, playfulness, and creativity. We believe that everyone brings to the table something unique that no one else can offer.

– a place that follows the transforming life and teachings of Jesus while accepting the wisdom from all religious traditions.

Our Guiding Principles

We are called to see that…

Divinity is Everywhere (Creation Spirituality)

Creation Spirituality compels us to return to the deep imprints of our collective unconscious, imprints that undergird all modern religions, including Christianity.

We are called to listen for God’s Spirit in…

Voices from the Margins (Liberation Theology)

We are committed to listen to the cries of the oppressed and interrupt systems of marginalization within society and the church, including our own innate and unconscious privileges.

We are called to…

Think and Speak Mythologically (Spiritual Development)

We are committed to discover and develop ritual, narrative, and myth that brings meaning to our spiritual journeys while honoring the laws of science.

We are called to…

Uphold the Beloved Community (Community Values)

We seek to make Trinity a safe community that does not try to heal, convert, or fix each other. We are committed to creating a community that allows for individuation while still weaving systems of healthy communication, respect, and connectedness.

We are called to…

The Journey Inward and Journey Outward (Spirituality and Action)

We ground our activism in intentional spiritual-centeredness and our spirituality in making change in the world. We seek to employ Gandhi’s and King’s principles of nonviolence and live out a nonbinary spirituality where our inner and outer work are equally honored.

We are called to practice…

Deep Ecumenism (Interspiritual and Interfaith Connections)

We seek to reclaim our Christian history and the holy writings of the mystics and prophets centered in the life and teachings of Jesus of Nazareth. We also celebrate the rich, living faith expressions of other religious traditions, including nature-based and animist pathways.
