Trinity Sunday – 11:00 AM (Eastern Time) ~ Live and Online with RSVP In-Person Seating

May 30 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

On the First Sunday after Pentecost we celebrate Trinity Sunday. Since the fourth century, many Christians adopted the language of “trinity” for the nature of God. Namely, we say that we believe in one God who is three Persons (not three gods who sit in council with one another).

The doctrine of the Trinity is meant to evoke wonder and mystery. We use symbols and analogies to point towards the plurality and unity of God, but the symbols and analogies never fully grasp how God is at once Source, Word, and Presence; Father, Son, and Holy Spirit; Yahweh, Christ, and Spirit of God. Christians have many ways of describing to the mystery of the Trinity. Unfortunately, too many Christians have weaponized the doctrine of the Trinity to expel those who have questions or who can’t affirm the plurality and unity of God.

When we celebrate the Trinity, we do so in the sense of wonder and mystery. We open ourselves to all the possibilities of what it means that there is one God who we know through the great “I AM” of the Hebrew scriptures, Christ of the Gospels, and the Spirit of Pentecost.

Join us as we consider this great mystery. The worship bulletin can be found here: (Update coming soon!)
