Trinity offers Sunday morning Christian education for all ages. In addition to Sunday School for youth, Trinity offers an Adult Education Class at 9:15 am in Trinity’s Chapel. Led by Pastor Mark, this class studies various topics, often in continuing block segments over a series of weeks. Studies may include timely topics of Christianity, historical deep-dives into the “why” behind our faith and worship, or exploring our spiritual practice and relationship with Christ. Additional materials may be available for purchase with specified classes.
Women and Justice
In 2009, the Churchwide Assembly authorized the development of a social statement on women and justice. The ELCA Task Force on Women and Justice: One in Christ has been at work since 2012 and brought the work to a crucial stage. On November 15, 2017 it released the Draft of a Social Statement on Women and Justice. The comment period on the Draft is open until September 30, 2018.
The ELCA Task Force on Women and Justice invites us to read and evaluate the “Draft of a Social Statement on Women and Justice.” Over the 5 weeks in September we will read and discuss the statement and then individuals can respond to the task force with their comments and evaluation. You may download the statement here. An overview of the Draft Statement is available on the table in the narthex.
Adult Education opportunities are also available during the week:
WEDNESDAY MID-WEEK ADULT EDUCATION Led by Pastor Mark, this is an opportunity to grow deeper in our Christian faith which ultimately informs how we live in community. Studies include delving deeper into a particular Book of the Bible, tracing a theme through Scriptures, using aspects of our faith (10 Commandments, Lord’s Prayer, Creed) as spiritual practice, reading and discussing works of current faith leaders.
