About Trinity Covenant Church
If you want to sum it up, at Trinity Covenant Church we are about Christ. There is no more compelling reason that would draw this diverse group of people together into a community than Jesus. We believe in Him as Lord and Savior and want to be about the things he cared about: loving God and one another.
We believe one of the primary ways we come to characterize and live like Christ is to be immersed in Scripture. We love reading and studying the Bible, for in it we learn to know God and be shaped by Him.
We care a lot about worship. We have one worship service at 10:30am on Sundays and we are thoughtful and purposeful in the planning of the service so that it offers sacred space to express our worship and encounter our Living God.
We are committed to families and children. Adult formation takes place through our Sunday morning Grow Time classes and mid-week through Trinity Grow Groups. Kids ministry is also a priority at Trinity. We offer Bible-based lessons for kids on Sundays during Grow Time and during our worship service. We offer a three-year confirmation program for middle school students, as well as other mid-high youth activities. And, Trinity maintains a long-standing commitment to high schoolers through our youth group, and through our partnership with Young Life.
We long to bring the message and presence of Christ to the Salem community and to our world. We are committed to serving Liberty School kids through our after-school program and reading program. We support a number of global missionaries involved in church building and community development work. And, the list goes on. You would be hard pressed to find a member of Trinity who is not volunteering both in the church and somewhere in the community.
