At Trinity Church we endeavor to live by the words from Mark 12:29-31: Jesus said, "...Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength...Love your neighbor as yourself."
Our opportunities for worship, for adult, teen and children's Christian formation, for outreach and for "in-reach" are all designed to help us engage with each other and with our Lord, as we receive and show our love of God and neighbor. Come to Trinity Episcopal Church in Fishkill, New York and you'll be invited to join in worship and Eucharist every Sunday at the 8 AM Rite I or 10 AM Rite II services from the 1979 Book of Common Prayer.
You'll also find Christian formation for all ages, with Godly Play children's and Journey to Adulthood youth programs mainly on Sunday mornings. You'll be encouraged to love your neighbors by putting your mind, heart, and hands to work as part of Trinity's vital, multigenerational parish family. We engage in a variety of ministries both within the parish, out in the local community, and in the wider world.
Loving the Lord our God and our neighbors is lived by the people of Trinity Church from practical perspectives such as providing handicapped access to our Revolutionary War-era, air-conditioned church building and by the inviting use of our Parish House. The Parish House is adjacent to the church building and contains classrooms, restrooms, fellowship hall and kitchen.
We worship dressed comfortably as we would for school or work, and minister to each other in a social setting during Coffee Hour in the Parish Hall after the 10 AM service. Coffee or juice and a light snack are provided by pairs of volunteers.
Wherever you are on your spiritual journey and whatever your race, marital status, gender, sexual orientation or age, come to Trinity to join others who are also seeking a deeper understanding of how God speaks to us through Scripture, of how God works in and through each of us, and how we can respond as a community to build relationship with God and with each other. We would be blessed by your presence and participation.
Blessed by God's Grace and enriched by our heritage, our mission is to glorify God, proclaim the love of God in Jesus Christ, and serve God's people.
