Strategic Plan as approved by the Congregation
Council on January 12, 2015
and as presented to the congregation at the January
25th congregational meeting:
Final plan with appendices
Where is Trinity
going? What’s our future? With Trinity’s
strategic plan presented at our congregational
meeting, our website, and through emails, the real
work to have Trinity’s goals and priorities realized
has begun. Printed copies of the full plan are
available at the information desk. We are
establishing working liaisons between the Strategic
Planning Committee and Trinity’s committees and
teams. Leadership groups will be further
defining/refining necessary action steps aimed at
attaining our goals related to Strengthening
Relationships, Making Connections, and Building
Foundations. For example, we are developing specific
communication activities as well as financial and
property strategies based on our ministry emphases,
especially with regard to small group ministries. We
will update you throughout the year with
congregational forums, and we need YOU to engage!

Our hospitalized and at-home members are
