Sunday Morning Programs for Adults, Children, and Youth

Sundays at Trinity go beyond our worship services. Throughout the year, Trinity offers forums and discussion groups to enrich the life of the mind as well as the spirit. All programs are free and open to the public.

The Forum

Sundays at 10:10 am
Held during Trinity’s regular program year from Fall through Spring, the Dean’s Forum is an opportunity to hear from leading thinkers about faith, ethics, art, and civic engagement. Dean’s Forums are also made available as podcasts.

Discussion Groups and Bible Study

Sundays at 10:10 a. m. (unless otherwise noted)
Trinity offers small group conversation on issues of concern to the congregation, the Episcopal Church and the wider world. While topics are frequently selected in advance, newcomers are welcome. Upcoming discussion groups include:

Bible Study: Community Gospel Reflections
Most Sundays, January 13-May 19
Members of Trinity and interested visitors convene on Sunday mornings between services to offer personal reflections on that day’s Gospel reading. We carefully listen to each other as we engage with the Biblical text from several different translations. No knowledge of Scripture necessary. Bring your coffee, and come join us.

Books that Didn’t Make the Cut
February 10 & 17
Have you ever wondered how the books of the Bible got to be in the Bible? What about the books that ‘didn’t make the cut’? Join Trinity’s own Bob Fowler, professor of religion at Baldwin Wallace University, for a Forum on February 3, followed by classes on February 10 and 17, to learn about the complicated, tangled, messy business of deciding what books of the Bible are ‘in’ and what books are ‘out.’ The Gospel of Thomas, the Q Gospel, the Gospel of Mary (Magdalene), and the Acts of Paul and Thecla will be introduced.

Children & Youth Programs

Sundays at 10:10 am
The Children/Youth Education Mission of Trinity is to guide Trinity’s children and youth through a reflective and active faith formation experience that provides a solid Christian foundation in the Episcopal tradition and fosters a spiritual reserve that supports them in making informed moral decisions throughout their lives.
