Maybe you’re just beginning your search for a church home or maybe you’ve already worshiped with us. Either way, this is a great place to learn more about Trinity. All are welcome. Take your time and look around. We hope you’ll join us in serving Christ!
At Trinity, our mission is to proclaim and live our faith so others may decide for Jesus Christ and together we will grow as disciples. We invite all who crave community and desire to serve God as the living body of Christ to come, work alongside us as we make Christ known in our world.
Trinity’s disciples are committed to spreading the love of God by supporting mission efforts that impact our community, our country and our world. Learn about the missions we’re supporting this year and join us in serving God by providing needed aid to a diverse group of missions.
There are many ongoing ministries at Trinity. Much of our continued support aids those with unique needs in our congregation and local community. From free clothing at The Shepherd’s Closet to gathering essential food staples for the Hummelstown Food Pantry, Trinity is deeply tied to her local community.
“My heart breaks for people who have been burned by or feel excluded from the church. I go about ministry constantly asking the question: what is going to bring them into a closer relationship with Jesus?”
