I have gone to Trinity for 15 years, and it has changed much, The senior teaching pastor is fantastic--every sermon of his is moving, and he is never boring in the least.

I was raised Episcopalian (very similary to Catholic) and was never taught about having a relationship with Christ. I first started attending Trinity in Feb. 2006 & felt immediately at home! I was a little fearful of the large size of the church at first, but everyone was very welcoming & friendly. The music is fantastic & has really shown me was WORSHIP is all about! Initially, I was a bit concerned about women's role in the church, but took the classes, kept attending & the more I got to know people & the women who lead there, I was confident that Trinity does not see a woman's role as anything less than a man's. Trinity is a community of real people. I am so thankful to now be a member of this church. I am thankful for all the programs they offer, especially Celebrate Recovery, and have never felt any pressure regarding money or anything else there.

My husband and I really enjoyed our experience at Trinity Church. They seemed to be progressive, open-minded, and they always had a fun interesting service. We took the membership classes and all was going great until they had an elder in to speak. One woman in our class asked if women could be elders and he emphatically stated that they were working hard to keep gender roles in the church so that women could not be elders. Now, coming from a Catholic background, I am used to women having different roles in the church. However, in the Catholic church, this is just the way it has always been. Something felt wrong about a church JUST NOW trying to make that "law".

Well, we finished our membership class, but weren't quite as thrilled about Trinity as when we began the class. We decided to go to one more time and that was the last time we ever went. We walked by all the new flat screen televisions and listened to how they would be building a new building, then listened to an entire sermon basically stating that you must give 10% of your money or you are cursed. I am all for tithing, but my husband and I were 2 students with very little money and we were hoping that devoting our time through volunteer work would be more than enough. The pastor specifically stated that volunteer work was great, but you need to give your 10% to be blessed. I couldn't help but feel a bit confused when looking at all the money the church seemed to have when there are so many needy people out there, it just felt very wrong to me. We felt that, while I'm sure this brought more people in to hear the "good message", it seemed to go against the very core of Christianity.

We left Trinity and found a new church, believe it or not, a Catholic church, that was truly amazing. People sitting on the floor in the lobby just to hear the message, food donations accepted in place of money, the priest was extremely open-minded and caring. I always thought you would only find progressive thought in a "progressive" church (ie a new evangelical church), but I was proven very wrong.

Our experience was in 2005, so I'm not sure if changes have been made since.

While this may seem a large church to many, it quickly offers a sense of intimate community. The church is centered on Biblical teaching and takes strides to reach out to people both within the congregation and in the community at large. A variety of programs and groups help minister to the needs of people from all walks of life. This is a place to come and be welcomed, and to grow in your love for the Lord.
