As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another.

Proverbs 27:17

At Trinity, we believe the Holy Spirit works out significant spiritual growth in small groups of people within the church. Communities are a place for relationships to begin and deepen – for vulnerability, acceptance, and growth.

The primary meeting time for adult community at Trinity is during the Sunday School hour each week. We also have small group options through our Men's Ministry & Women's Ministry. Through these pathways, we seek to cultivate a community of Christ followers who share in God's work of renewal by grace. 

Sunday school

Beginning January 8, we have four adult Sunday School offerings: 
  • Practicing Hospitality, led by Richard Vise in Room 101 
Hospitality has always been practiced by God's people because God has been so hospitable to us. It makes for fruitful ministry because we were made for relationships with one another.  In today's world, people move, get isolated, or find they have no friends. We are 'strangers' in the biblical sense.  For the next 8 weeks we're going to do our best to understand what hospitality is and focus on helping one another practice it.

  • Delighting in the Trinity, led by Greg Meyer in Room 102
In this class, based on the book by Michael Reeves, we’ll explore the Christian faith and the Christian life as one that is start to finish rooted in the triune God — Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Not only do we understand the person and work of Christ through the Trinity, but also prayer, the church and every aspect of our faith.  Because God is a Trinity, he is love.   Because God is a Trinity, we can be saved.  Through the Trinity, we’re able to live the Christian life. If you’ve wanted to consider the uniqueness of each person of the Trinity and what this means for you, this is would be a great class for you.  Whether you new in your following of Jesus or been following him for a long time, reflecting on our three-in-one God is a worthy and fruitful investment.  Our hope is that our delight in our Triune God would deepen and flourish through this study.

  • The Book of Hebrews, led by Wes Hollowell, Bret Smith, and David Richardson in Room 103
Jesus is better.  He’s better than anyone and anything.  Sometimes we forget this and want to turn back to lesser, unsatisfying, but familiar things to make it through when times get tough.  In the middle of this reality, the author of Hebrews shows us the glories of Jesus by drawing from and building upon the rich resources found in the Old Testament to encourage to cling more tightly to Him in our struggle in this life.  In this class, we’ll continue studying (this class is continuing from the Fall) this powerful book of Scripture and asking the Spirit to work in our hearts.  Whether you attended this class last semester or are looking for something new, we’d love to have you join us!

  • The Prodigal God, led by Daniel Pruet, Norman Crow, Brent Pettus, and Bill Brewbaker in Room 104
In this class, we’ll be following along as pastor and bestselling author, Timothy Keller, uses one of Jesus’ best-loved parables- the Prodigal Son- to illustrate the depth of God’s love and how his grace extends into some very unexpected places. Taking you beyond the traditional focus on the wayward younger son, Keller helps you glean insights from each of the characters in Jesus’ parable: the irreligious younger son, the moralistic elder son, and the Father who lavishes his love on both. Inside this guide, you’ll explore questions from group discussion and personal reflection, and exercises that will help you experience the truths of Jesus’ parable in your own life. The gospel is neither religion nor irreligion, but something else entirely. Whether you’re a devout believer or a skeptic, The Prodigal God will challenge you to see Christianity in a whole new way.

All of these communities are intergenerational.  Join us downstairs at 9 AM!

College students: we have a class for you! – Join us in sanctuary after the worship service for a discussion of that morning's sermon.
