On behalf of the staff and membership of Trinity Presbyterian Church we bring you greetings. We are a diverse group of approximately 400 Christians seeking to live out the Will and Way of Jesus Christ in Mercer, Pa. We call  us "diverse" because no single word or phrase adequately describes our congregation.  We are older and younger, conservative and liberal, richer and poorer, introverted and extroverted...you name it and we are it. Which is another way of saying we would love to have someone like you join us in our journey of faith. We are sure you will fit in!
Rev. Dr. William P. Crooks

                                                                                            Our Mission
Trinity Church is a two-century-old community, focused on the worship of God as revealed by the Holy Spirit in Jesus Christ. Celebrating our heritage within the Presbyterian tradition, we seek to be both reformed and reforming. We understand worship to be the focus of our life together. We welcome all persons without distinction, and we build our worship around the preached Word, the prayers of the people, and the great hymns of the Faith.

While we understand worship to be the "Alpha and Omega" of our being, we also seek by various ways to express our faith through education and service. Our ministry to one another includes teaching the essentials and challenges of the faith to our children and new members. We encourage individual acts of service within the community and see these as visible expressions of God's love for all creation. We seek to stay open to the new leading of God's Spirit even as we celebrate the anchoring we have through Scripture and tradition.
