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

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.
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.  Please email Sue Bodner if you are interested.
Bible Chat
In the Library
No preparation or background needed and questions welcome. You don’t even have to come every week! We are working on a time to meet. Ben Stewart is leading so email him if you are interested.



Adult Education Sunday Morning
Earth Care
Trinity’s Earth Care team is excited to lead a class based on their activities in the past year and the coming year. Take advantage of the breadth of experience at Trinity to make a difference in your backyard all the way to Trinity’s footprint. The first class will be an introduction, then a new topic each week including: Potomac River: Clean for a Swim?; Our backyards: A Haven for us?; Trinity’s Outdoor Space: Home to many; Trinity’s Facilities: Need for an Energy Audit? and Environmental Justice Issues. This drop-in seven-week class will meet in the Lewis Room.
Meditation Class

A group will meet for meditation in the Meditation Room from 10:10-11:00am, beginning Sept 10 and going through Sun, Nov 19. We will be changing the format a bit from previous classes by having less instruction about meditation and more actual meditation! A period of silence will be held from 10:20-10:45 am. A leader will open the class at 10:10am with a reading. After the silence there will be time for reflection and sharing. If you have never tried meditation before or been doing it for decades, I hope you will join us! Please contact Sue Bodner if you have any questions (her email is in the enews or directory).

Just Coffee on Sunday Mornings
Sometimes maybe you don’t want an education class after or before worship.  If you would like to socialize in a coffee shop style setting with special creamers and snacks, please come to the Knox room (the large window filled room off the courtyard via in the preschool hallway).
