Trinity Episcopal Church in Anoka is part of the Episcopal Church in Minnesota (ECMN) one of its 104 locations around the state that are bound together by our commitment to follow the Way of Jesus, joining God in God's project to heal the whole World with love. At the ECMN convention in September 2020, the Rt. Rev. Bishop Loya introduced four priorities, including discipleship, daily practices that help us follow Jesus as a whole way of life; faithful innovation, joining the Spirit in new ways to proclaim and live out the Gospel; justice, becoming Beloved Community; and congregational vitality, thriving faith communities of all sizes in all places.
