Welcome Brunch

Our Outreach Ministry Team host classes called A "Welcome Brunch" for those seeking to become new members or those who would like more information about Trinity.

This new member class will be your opportunity to learn about Trinity, who we are, as well as some of the "basics" about the Presbyterian Form of Government. You will also have the opportunity to ask questions.

Call Bob or Colleen Lamberty (941-412-4139) or talk with Pastor Chuck to learn about the next available class.

Ways to Become a Member

Full Member

One who is a member of a particular church may be received by letter of transfer from that congregation. At you request, Trinity will write to your former church to request a letter of membership Transfer.

 

Affiliate Membership

If you wish Trinity to be your "home away from home", but wish to retain you membership in your "home" church, we invite you to join us as an Affiliate Member. This grants you full participation in Trinity, except voting privileges.

Reaffirmation of Faith

When previously one was a member of a Christian church and is unable to secure a certificate of transfer, such a person may reaffirm his/her profession of faith and his/her acceptance of responsibility in the life of the church

 

Profession of Faith

Profession of faith is another way in which a person may be received into membership by the church session. In this case, baptism is a requirement prior to becoming a member. If you are not now a baptized Christian, Pastor Chuck will be happy to discuss the meaning of baptism with you.
