Trinity Presbyterian Clearwater in FL Is an Open and Affirming Church – A Welcoming, Inclusive Place for All People to Connect with God and Others
At Trinity Clearwater in Florida, we offer people an open, friendly place to come and explore faith, ask questions about God, and ultimately form relationships and community with other people in the area. Whether you’ve been following Jesus for a lifetime, wrestling with big questions about God, or even if you’re skeptical about the church experience, we encourage you to come where you can strengthen your connection with God and discover a greater meaning and purpose for your life.
Since our founding in 1951, our goal as an inclusive church has been to make everyone who walks through our open doors feel welcome and loved. We focus on loving God with all of our hearts, souls, and minds, and loving others as ourselves. We invite you to join us for our Sunday worship service at 10:30 a.m. We are located on the corner of Hercules and Rainbow Drive, one block north of Gulf to Bay Boulevard in Clearwater, FL.
As an open and affirming church, we understand that people who visit us have many different perspectives of faith. We value these differences and encourage conversations about differences to strengthen our understanding of God and our connection with the people around us. Ultimately, we believe God’s truth is always greater than any one person’s or group’s interpretation of that truth. To better understand each other and ourselves, Trinity Clearwater offers many education opportunities in the church for both adults and youth. For people interested in joining a smaller Bible group or study before service on Sunday mornings, we offer adult Bible group at 9:00 a.m., children’s Sunday school at 9:00 a.m., and a “searchers” fellowship group at 10:00 a.m. We also offer classes called Wired Word, which include a Christian discussion of current events and conversations about what’s happening in the world around us. Our Alternative Perspectives class provides open discussions about progressive theology, big-picture topics relevant in today’s society, and the study of contemporary theologians. We also offer traditional adult Bible study circles, children and youth programs (called Spark and Fuse), vacation Bible school, and preschool for children ages two to pre-K.
