Trinity United Methodist on Lark and Lancaster is a very diverse and progressive church. About half of the congregation is white with the other half being from all different ethnic and racial backgrounds. There is a good mix of young and old, with many younger adults. It's a very accepting church for people who identify as lesbian or gay as well.
