What To Expect

First Time here?

We are excited to have you as our guest! During your visit please complete the Communication Form found in the Sunday bulletin and drop it off at the Information Center. We have a gift waiting there for you!

During the week we will telephone to welcome you, answer any questions you may have, and see if there is anything specific that we can pray about for you. We will also mail a welcome letter and First Impressions Card so you can let us know what you thought. And to express our appreciation for taking the time to check us out and giving us your input, we will be sending a movie gift code that can be used at any RedBox location. We hope you enjoy it!

Offerings are an act of worship given by attendees who call Trinity their home. As a guest, you are not asked nor expected to give, though you are welcome to if you desire to do this as an act of worship.

 

Is your church handicap accessible?

Yes, we are handicap accessible at all entrances, provide handicap parking, and have a handicap accessible restroom.

 

can i participate in communion?

The Lord's Supper is an object lesson that represents a great spiritual truth for believers - the remembrance of Jesus Christ's death and resurrection. Anyone who has accepted Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior is welcome to partake in communion with us.

 

what if I am interested in membership?

If you'd like to learn more about membership, please plan to attend "Discovering Life at Trinity." This is a two-part class designed to prepare you for membership at Trinity. After completing both parts of the class, and prayerful consideration, we would welcome you as a member if God so leads you to join this local church body known as Trinity Baptist Church.

 

who is your church affiliated with?

Trinity Baptist Church is an independent church, which is self-governed and determines its own affairs. Their is no denominational control or heirarchy. However, our church does have a voluntary relationship with three specific groups of churches:
