The Centrality of Christian Education and Spiritual Formation
(The Episcopal Church Charter for Lifelong Christian Formation)

Although our understanding of what and how we conduct Christian education and formation continually evolves, the following can safely be said at this point of our development. Trinity Episcopal Church seeks to be a vital and mature community of faith. To that end, the leaders of our Christian education programs for children, youth, and adults develop learning experiences that respond to the questions, challenges, and needs that each person brings from his or her particular stage and circumstance in life. We hope that what happens in our life together as a church, whether worship, study, social gatherings, or service, will respond to these questions, challenges, and needs and lead us to grow more deeply in our understanding and practice of Christian faith in daily life.

Parish education leaders believe that Christian formation begins with the conviction that God is working in each person’s life, inviting us into relationship with God and one another. The Baptismal Covenant and Catechism of the Book of Common Prayer, the traditions of the Anglican Communion and the Episcopal Church, the particular identity of Trinity Episcopal Church’s parish, and the ongoing revelation of the Holy Spirit in our midst—all shape our faith and our teachings. We welcome you into the rich and exciting journey of becoming who you are called to be in Christ.
