The ministry at Trinitas Church is directed to a unique convergence of cultures along the Interstate 405 dividing line between North King and South Snohomish counties. On the one hand, it is home to a wealth of college students, career bound young adults, and artfully inclined individuals who work, study, and recreate in the urban center of Seattle, but make their bed in the more affordable towns of Bothell and Mill Creek. On the other hand, there are many families, young and old, who once dwelt in the city, but who migrated to the suburbs as a more desirable place to raise their children. Taken together, the Mill Creek-Bothell area is blessed with many of the virtues of urban and suburban life—high accessibility to education, the arts, lucrative jobs, family-friendly communities. But, for that very same reason, it is filled with unspoken pressures to be well-educated, successful, well-rounded, savvy to cultural trends, etc. In this respect, there is a looming sort of legalism which promises a better life through sustained human effort. As a result, the people of our community need most of all to hear the good news about the gift of rich and genuine community in the present, and of life in eternity that is given to those who have faith in Jesus Christ. Moreover, it is the mission of Trinitas Church to teach believers to rely on Christ as their great hope and comfort, rather than their accomplishments, careers, and social status by instilling patterns of worship and spiritual discipline through our weekly worship services together. In having the worship of Christ infiltrate all that we are and do, we hope to bear witness to the saving power of the Gospel to our community, and to extend redemption to the world.
In pursuing the mission to make disciples of Christ, and to nurture believers in the worship of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, Trinitas Church relies on three Biblical and Historic avenues for ministry and outreach. (Click on each of the Headings below for more detailed descriptions.)
