THE CHURCH OF THE HOLY TRINITY


EDUCATION FORMATION

WE BELIEVE IN THE POWER OF LEARNING

Empathy for others is born from knowledge and understanding. The more we know and can teach, the better we can serve our community. We challenge ourselves and each other to find new ways to learn, adapt, and share what we know. We integrate children and youth from our congregation to lead and assist in our worship services. Empowering the younger generation to feel heard and to lead instills confidence and pride. They are not just future leaders, but they are the leaders of today. Our teens and youth are encouraged to integrate their faith and their lives as they have opportunities to talk openly about their experiences and how their faith can support them. Learning continues beyond childhood at The Church of the Holy Trinity. Our adult gatherings provide an open and welcoming venue for discussing faith-related topics and questions among like-minded congregants..


ADULTS

We believe that everyone has something to teach to and something to learn from the people around them.

Our Adult education takes that belief and puts it into action. This is not a top down didactic kind of teaching model – with one teacher and a class full of learners. Instead, we gather together around a topic, curriculum, or even conversation starter with curiosity and a lifetime of expertise to share with each other. Through our conversations and interconnections, we begin to learn more about each other, about our faith, about the topic at hand, and about God.

When we are able to gather in the church, we meet as the Connections class – between the two services at 9:30 am – in the parish house. We sit in a circle and discuss as a group the topic at hand.

In the virtual world, we meet as Sunday CH@Ts on Zoom. This is also a participatory conversation, but we have focused our work on anti-racism, scripture and art, and are now working with a devotional for Advent from the Living Compass group. This years devotional is focused on Finding Hope and Living Well.

CH@Ts AND CONNECTIONS

In the virtual world, we meet as Sunday CH@Ts on Zoom for conversation, discussion and exploration of our faith in every day life.  This year we have focused on anti-racism, scripture and art, finding hope in the world, listening and learning, and our own impact in the neighborhood in 2020-2021. Join anytime.

Connections

When we are able to gather in the church, we meet as the Connections class – between the two services at 9:30 am – in the parish house. We sit in a circle and discuss as a group the topic at hand.
