Faith Formation: Adults

Adult Bible Study News

 

The adult Bible Study discussion on the ELCA’s social statements held on Sunday mornings has completed a discussion on the church and criminal justice.  We will no longer be meeting on Sundays so that we can reorganize and re-envision the goals of this course.  The leaders of this study seek to undertake a deeper, more creative and intentional approach with the aim of building a faith community in the service of God and Gospel.  Our new format will include (1) coming together to pray, (2) sharing a meal, (3) participating in holy conversations inspired by pertinent reading materials (including the Bible, church documents, and theological books and articles addressing contemporary advocacy issues), and, finally, (4) committing to take specific, meaningful actions together on dedicated justice issues.  All are welcome!

 

This event series will be held once a month in the Parish Hall.  We hope to initiate this new format after Easter, and we are also working toward planning dates and times where more individuals and families with children might feel comfortable.  As many of you are aware, Trinity is working with Jewish Family and Child Services (JFCS) to support us as we prepare to adopt a refugee family.  Therefore, our first topic of our new study will be centered on immigration. This issue offers many exciting service opportunities for parents, children, and teens.  When we serve others, lives are changed, beginning with ourselves.  Please make room on your schedule and join us!

James

Sundays, 9:45-10:45 AM

Parish Hall Overflow Room (2nd floor)
Bill Parasida, Facilitator

 

The letter of James enters us into dialogue about the gift of God that enables God’s people to live and grow in responsible maturity. This advice for responsible, faithful behavior is scattered throughout James. This study will engage participants in tough questions about wisdom, growth and maturity in a rich, vibrant format.

3D’s: Women’s Group

3rd Wednesday of the month
1:00–2:30 PM
Parish Hall

Led by Donna Peffer

3D’s stands for Devotion (with a little dessert added in there), Discussion, and Destination. We seek to know God better through scripture, prayer, and fellowship; living out Christ’s love by Letting Our Light Shine as Christian women in support for each other, not only in our group, but in our congregation and others outside of our group.
