One of the jokes at Trinity Episcopal Church Escondido is that we are not a church where you can get lost in a crowd. You won’t be able to sit on a pew long without those around you noticing that there is a new “neighbor” in their midst. We take our community of Trinity seriously as well as the larger community we all share. We want everyone who attends Trinity Episcopal Church Escondido to feel as though they are a part of something larger than themselves.
Trinity is a place for people of all ages, genders, ethnicities, sexual orientations, abilities, political beliefs, and marital/family status. We are not a church where you will need to fight off negative messages about groups of people. As a liberal Christian parish we never want to make anyone feel as if they are less worthy or less loved by God. God loves you. There are no exceptions.
You don’t have to check your brain at the door. One of the three pillars of the Episcopal faith is reason. In fact, our “reason” is a source of authority. God gave us brains to think with, and a heart to feel with. We ought to use them. We want our congregants at Trinity Episcopal Church Escondido to be thoughtful in their faith and “wrestle with God”. not blindly follow doctrine. To that end, we provide multiple venues for investigating your rational mind, including our Rector’s Forum and our young adult study, Monday School.
Trinity Episcopal Church, Escondido shows up. We are present in our community and active in Interfaith Community Services. Mother Meg, our Rector, preaches a lively sermon that takes the liturgical readings and applies them to your life, here and now. She takes the ancient texts, dusts off the cobwebs and makes them relevant. We don’t shy away from the sticky topics of our day. We dive right in.
