About Trinity...

We are a member church of the United Church of Christ.  This relatively young denomination was officially formed in June of 1957 as a merger of the Evangelical and Reformed Church and the Congregational Christian Churches, but our roots date far back in history - back through the Reformation of the 16th century to the time and person of Jesus Christ.

Mrs. McCarter graduated from Western Piedmont Community College in 2004 with an Associate's Degree in Computer Science.  She has previous work experience in a church setting and many talents with graphic design.  She always has a pleasant attitude and is quick to respond to questions.
