Trinity’s Mission Is…

To be an open, diverse and compassionate community of people whose central meanings in life are found and renewed in the person and work of Jesus Christ: a community whose gathering is to celebrate the presence of God, to share what the saints of the Church have taught, to join hands in solidarity with other communities of faith and to participate; in the renewal of God's creation in the Capital District of New York State and throughout the whole earth. Our hearts, our minds, our doors are always open.
