Learning for Adults
There are two main strategies that we have for studying the Scriptures in community. The first strategy is through our Growth Group ministries, and our second strategy is through our classes.
At Trinity, we are extremely committed to our Growth Groups! They are the core of our adult ministry. The mission of these small groups is to help us grow in relationships with one another and with Christ. It is here that you will find fellowship in committed community, learn and study the Bible, and serve our neighbors and church together. These groups of 8 to 12 adults meet in a person’s home or at the church and the study is based on the passage of Scripture that we examined during Sunday’s Worship. Growth Group sessions run in the Fall and in the Spring.
Our Fall 2019 Session got started on September 8
A new season will be starting in March!
Growth Group FAQs
What is a Growth Group?
Growth Groups are groups of 8 to 12 adults who meet once a week to fellowship, study God’s Word, and support one another through prayer. The groups also commit to serve together in the community at least once during the semester.
Why does our Church believe Growth Groups are so important?
Our mission behind Growth Groups is to help us grow in relationships with one another and with Christ. We find these small gatherings of people to be primary in our church mission of making and growing disciples who give their lives to make a difference in the world.
How long is a semester?
Growth groups meet in the spring and fall for a total of 10-12 weeks each semester.
Where and when do the Growth Groups meet?
The Growth Groups generally meet at members’ homes. The hosts’ addresses are provided at the sign-up table.
How do I sign up?
Sign-ups are held for two-three weeks prior to the start up of the semester. The sheets are located in church lobby.
What will the groups study?
Groups will be doing a sermon/scripture-based study. You will listen to the sermon on Sunday (or online during the week if you can’t make it to church) and discuss it and the scripture at your Growth Group meeting.
Will childcare be provided?
Some groups have childcare provided. See the description for each group for more information.
Please contact the church office for more information.
One of the primary ways that we learn is through our different classes. We study the Bible to grow deeper in our faith and to learn all that we can about our Awesome God.
We have regular classes on Sunday Mornings, and we also have classes that meet throughout the week. During the Summer and Winter we offer special classes and lectures on Wednesday nights. We hope you’ll join us as we study together.
Sunday Mornings @10:15
The Wired Word— Classroom #5b (south end of building)
The Wired Word relates pre-selected current events to Scripture. Each week is a new lesson which engages the participants in thought provoking discussion of not only the current event, but more importantly, the biblical texts. This study is led by LaRue Corbin and Jay Steele.
Revelation—Adult Classroom (across from the office)
Participants explore the Divine mystery of John’s Revelation. The approach to this study is not one of a secret knowledge of the future by man (John), but of how God is revealed through Jesus Christ. This study is led by Dan Lyons.
The Gospel of John – Classroom #4 (across from the gym)
This is an in-depth study of the Gospel of John. Learn about what makes this gospel unique among the gospels and hear first hand of the earthly life of Jesus through the eyes of one of his closest disciples. This study is led by Chalie Galligan.
During The Week
Women’s Bible Study – Classroom #4 on Wednesdays 9:30 – 11:00 am
We have a new study beginning September 11. Women of the Torah: Matriarchs and Heroes of Israel is part of the Ancient-Future Bible Study by Stephen J. Binz. This method of study incorporates a contemporary study of the Bible with an experience of the church’s most ancient way of reading Scripture, lectio divina.
