What it Means to be a Home For All

Every time we gather at Trinity Reformed, we always state our mission:

No matter where you've been,No matter where you're going,When you're at TRINITY YOU ARE HOME! Here we teach justice, we preach compassion, and we expect diversity.



But what does all that mean?

One time, during a church board meeting a woman came with a concern. She stated that people had been showing up dressed inappropriately with cut-off jeans, halter-tops, and sneakers. She felt that Trinity needed a dress code. Another member spoke up and said, "We really can't be a 'home for all' if we have a dress code or other expectations." The woman responded, "Oh, you're right." And that was the end of the discussion.

That's what it means to be a home for all. Come as you are and we'll start from where you are in your faith journey.
