Who We Are
Are you looking for a progressive church in the Lakeland/Winter Haven area that strives for justice in our community and beyond? We are excited to meet you! At Trinity, we explore the issues of our faith by taking the Bible seriously, but not literally.
As a congregation of the United Church of Christ, we celebrate the diversity God created us to be! As an “Open and Affirming” church, we welcome all people however they identify their sexual orientation or gender. Trinity is proud to be radically inclusive, extravagantly welcoming, and evangelically courageous.
Together, we are:
Young and old
LGBT and straight
"Snowbirds" and year-round Florida residents
Folks who grew up in the UCC and folks who are new to the UCC
The United Church of Christ is a result of the 1957 merger of the Congregational Christian Churches and the Evangelical and Reformed Church, and we have incorporated recent Christian traditions as well. Most importantly, we value our call to follow the Way of Jesus in our day-to-day living.
We are very conveniently located in Winter Haven, Florida, which is about an hour away from Tampa and Orlando. Our progressive, open-minded, and welcoming environment attracts members from around Polk County and Central Florida, including Winter Haven, Lakeland, Auburndale, Lake Wales, Polk City, Mulberry, Kissimmee, Lake Alfred, Bowling Green, and Clermont. Also, we are only 15 minutes away from Legoland!
Check us out! No matter who you are or where you are on life's journey, you're welcome here!
