A brief message from Rev. Spencer:

   I fully realize it can often be very difficult to visit a new and different church for the first time. I myself have done so many times over the years. But whether you are new to our area, or have lived here for many years, but are not a member of another Christian church here, I would like you to consider Trinity for your new spiritual home.

I hope you will see that Trinity is fully committed to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, and His wonderful Gospel of salvation by grace alone through faith. We base all our teachings upon God’s perfect Word, the Bible. Our church is here for one reason, and one reason only – to help people grow in their faith in the One True Triune God, and receive eternal life through His one and only Son, Jesus Christ.

Sunday worship begins at 10:25 AM. We joyously celebrate the Sacrament of Holy Communion at every regular Sunday service. Adult and Children’s Bible Time is held each Sunday at 9:30 AM. We also offer Bible studies each Wednesday at 10 AM and 7 PM, as well as mid-week Vesper services also on Wednesdays at 7 PM during the Advent and Lent seasons.

I invite and encourage you to visit us this Sunday. For more information please feel free to contact me by phone at the church office, 520-458-5897, or at the church’s email address: Email Trinity Orthodox Church

If there is any way I can be of service to you, please don’t hesitate to contact me. Take care and God bless!

Your servant under Christ,
Pastor Steven D. Spencer
