Trinity Parish helps people nurture their spirituality and grow in their faith. We are practiced in creating a small-group environment that encourages curiosity, where it is safe to ask questions, and in which you will be supported by the companionship of fellow seekers.

Small Group Scripture Study Series

Several times each year, Trinity Parish offers a four to eight week study on a book of the Bible. In these sessions participants take turns reading a passage aloud, sharing brief stories from their own lives, speaking to questions about the passage, and reflecting on how the passage might apply to their day-to-day lives. Meetings typically take place after the Sunday liturgy, last 60 minutes, and are facilitated by Fr. Miller and a team of lay members from the parish. For more information, please contact the parish office.

Baptism and Confirmation Preparation

Based on the ancient catechumenate, Trinity Parish’s Baptism and Confirmation Preparation Group (“BCPG”) offers a safe place to explore questions about the Faith, to deepen familiarity with the Scriptures and Tradition, to more fully develop one’s relationship with Jesus, and to do so with the support of clergy and fellow parishioners.  The BCPG also helps prepare those who wish to reaffirm their Baptismal vows.  The BCPG typically meets after the Sunday liturgy starting in early January and continuing throughout the Lenten season.  Some years, the Baptism and Confirmation Preparation Group may meet at other times in preparation for Baptism, Confirmation or Reaffirmation at the Bishop’s visit.  In 2024, the Baptism and Confirmation Preparation Group will continue to meet each Sunday in July at 11:30am.

It is likely that there will be another series of BCPG sessions in advance of the Bishop’s visit on October 27, 2024. For more information or to sign up, please contact Fr. Miller.

Trinity Parish Anti-Racism Reading Group

Trinity Parish’s Anti-Racism Reading Group – formed in response to the killings several years ago of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and Ahmaud Arbery, among others – reads books about and meets regularly to discuss matters of racism and racial justice. To date, the group has read and discussed books such as Jonathan Eig's King: A Life, Annette Gordon-Reed’s On Juneteenth, and Toni Morrison’s The Bluest Eye and Beloved. To learn the group’s next meeting date and book, please be in touch with Fr. Miller or listen for announcements after the Sunday liturgy. (Image source.)

Exploring Faith with EfM

Interested members of Trinity are invited to participate weekly in an Education for Ministry “EFM” small group each year. EfM is a mentor-guided theological study program for lay people that provides tools to help explore our faith and how to incorporate faith into our lives. EFM is a four-year program, although participants register for one year at a time. Year 1 focuses on the Hebrew Bible, Year 2 on the New Testament, Year 3 on church history, and Year 4 on theology, ethics, and interfaith encounter. The program is directed by the School of Theology at Sewanee, the University of the South, in Sewanee, Tenn. A more complete description is available through the School of Theology. For more information or to sign up, please contact the parish office.

Saturday Morning Bible Study

We invite parishioners to participate in Bible Study Saturday mornings from 9:00–10:00 am at the house of one of the participants. The format entails reading a chapter or two aloud and discussing whatever comes to mind for the participants, whether it be related to current events, our own lives, or just questions. People are welcome to come occasionally or every week as their schedules permit. This ecumenical Bible Study is shared with congregations of other denominations, and it is open to all. We meet in various people’s houses and, given the early start time, coffee and pastries will be available. For more information and this week’s location, contact the parish office.

Special Programs

Throughout the year, Trinity’s special programs offer company and support for those wanting to go deeper on their journey. Programs may be one-time offerings, or short “modules” of three or more sessions. Examples of special programs that Trinity has offered are: “First Time in Prayer and Quiet,” “Intercessory Prayer,” “Developing a Rule of Life,” or “Discerning Spiritual Gifts.” Sometimes, members gather to discuss a book. For information about upcoming special adult formation programs at Trinity, please see our calendar, or contact the parish office.
