Trinity’s Outreach Vision:
Equipping people for a healthy community.
Trinity's Outreach Values:
We value our place on the corner of 6th and Grant within the Bryant Neighborhood on the Hilltop of Tacoma, and have committed ourselves to the people of this neighborhood.
We value and commit ourselves to living in a manner that disarms those around us by being transparent and truthful about our individual and collective condition.
We value every person as created in God’s image and, therefore, we treat them with respect, we speak to them with kindness, and we love them with understanding.
We value each person’s ability to give of themselves, believing that with a diversity of gifts we are made more whole.
We value the impact of relationships and the transformation that can take place when people are able to walk alongside one another and share life together.
