THE MISSION OF TRINITY CHURCH is to INTRODUCE people to Jesus Christ, DEEPEN faith and make disciples, ENCOURAGE community, and PROVIDE opportunities to use our spiritual gifts both locally and throughout the world.
WELCOME TO TRINITY
Thank you for taking time to visit our website. There are many fine churches in greater Venice and we are honored that you would take time to give us a peek.
If I were to tell you what Trinity Church means to me, it could be summed up in our CORE VALUES. Which we begin by saying, We seek to be Christ centered, Biblically based, and Spiritually Alive! That was an informal mission statement that found its way into a definition of who we are and what we are about. Let me explain:
TWO WORSHIP SERVICES YEAR-ROUND
Contemporary Service 9:00AM
Traditional Service 10:30AM
- By CHRIST CENTERED we believe that the One who brings us together is Jesus Christ. Our teaching, our preaching, our life-styles center around Jesus, fully God and truly human, ‘who loved us and gave himself for us.’ (Galatians 2:20)
- By BIBLICALLY BASED we believe that the Holy Scriptures—the 66 books of the Old and New Testaments—are the “God-breathed” word of God written and is our final authority for life and doctrine.(2 Timothy 3:16)
- By SPIRITUALLY ALIVE! we believe that if the Christian faith is really true, it needs to be demonstrated in a robust way that makes a difference in our personal lives, our congregation, and how we live that out in the world. (John 6:63)
So whether you are a long-time believer, a curious seeker, or an honest skeptic, we invite you to join on this journey of “Amazing Grace.” I would look forward to greeting you. So, come and see!

FOUR HOT POTATOES…
with no easy answers
This early summer series Four Hot Potatoes—with No Easy Answers is an attempt to round up folks among us, those so called “Baby Boomers” (and those they invite) to share in a time of fellowship, study, discussion and of course, good FOOD! It’s four consecutive Wednesday nights at 6:30pm, beginning May 20th.
Four Week Series
May 20 & 27 June 3 & 10
You will discover that the four topics to be discussed are not for the faint of heart! But they ARE for folks that enjoy robust discussion, even disagreement at times, and who seek thoughtful and engaging answers from Scripture.

Jesus is the “way, truth, and life” me=a bigot? june 10
Twenty years ago we called them drunks and junkies, as the poster-board names for addictive behaviors. Today we know that addicts come in all shapes, sizes and smells. They are CEOs, white collar professionals, Sunday School teachers, as well as homeless street people and bag ladies. In what ways should Christians recognize and respond to these pervasive afflictions among us?
Probably no other hot-button issue grabs the headlines in frequency as the dramatic global spread of Islam—and its venomous outgrowth—terrorism that spreads violence in the name of religion. What are the basics that we need to understand about Islam and Islamists? What opportunities do we have as Christ’s disciples to respond to this movement?
