Adult Education

In person or online, Trinity offers a variety of classes for Adults.  Trinity’s Adult Education program goes beyond Sunday School Classes to include small group studies like Bible Disciple and Companions in Christ, as well as a book club, a book study group, a contemplative prayer group, and other opportunities which can be formed as there are enough people interested in participating. Most of the classes are drop in and last about 8 weeks.  You are invited to drop in and try it out. Questions?  Email Ben, Dir. of Spiritual Formation

Thursday Morning Book Study 

Thursday
10:00 – 11:45 a.m. 
Virtual
Leaders: Class Participants Rotate leadership
 
The Thursday Morning Class is a loose group of folks who meet to think and talk about spiritual, Biblical, ethical, and practical things. We share leadership (and, during normal times, snacks) and generally have something specific to spark our discussions.
The 2022 Thursday Morning Class began on September 8th but it is not too late to join!  We meet every Thursday at 10:00 for a couple of hours of discussion centered around a book we hope will add to our knowledge of the Bible, spirituality, or Christian living. Our current selection is Bruce McLaren’s A New Kind of Christianity.  You are welcome to join us as we find our way through the maze of meeting via Zoom or face-to-face or some evolving combination.  Please email Dee Waters for the link and password.
 

Sunday

 

Adult Education Sunday Morning
“Do we even need an Old Testament when we have a New One?”
Inspired by the book “Lies my Pastor told me” by Brent A. Strain, this class will take some of his chapter questions and explore the Old Testament and try to demystify it. We will have a look at the Old Testament timeline, talk about laws, discuss the violence and see if there is more to this part of our scripture that so many people stay away from because maybe they don’t understand it or they have a few misconceptions about it. Meet in the Lewis Room, led by Ben Stewart  Questions?Ask Ben.
 
 
Virtual Bible Chat 
Sundays at 2pm via zoom.
Join Ben for an informal Bible Study from the comfort of your home. Email Ben if you are interested and to get the Zoom link, please email Ben.  No commitment, come when you can.
