Small groups provide an easy way to connect with others, even at a distance. Check out the different small groups we have to offer at the moment, including Exodus Bible Study, Samuel Bible Study, Wine & Wisdom and God on Tap!
Anyone, from anywhere is invited to gather (over Zoom) every weekday at 12:15 p.m. We greet each other and talk briefly about our lives, then ask for prayers for loved ones, communities, anything that is on our hearts. The Pastor shares a short lesson and leads us in prayer, then we go back to our daily lives, feeling just a bit more connected to our faith and to one another. This is a great opportunity for those who are seeking to feel connected from home. This is an open invitation to drop in one time, once in awhile, or anytime you like.
In this time of reduced participation inside the church building, many people are missing a “normal” worship service experience. While the idea of Backyard Communion may not feel completely “normal,” we do think people found it valuable and meaningful to participate in the Sacrament. You can choose to gather either at the church in the cloister garden, or host your own backyard communion where the pastor will come to you and you invite friends and family to participate in a socially distanced communion practice. Sign-up is required.
Race and Racism Conversation
Difficult conversations can be very rewarding and meaningful: we are finding a lot of meaning and enrichment during the Zoom gathering on Wednesday evenings. The combination of all-together time coupled with several mini breakout-sessions for deeper conversation is proving to be a good way to listen and to learn about the topic of racism. It isn't too late if you'd like to join us at 7:30 PM on Wednesdays.
ALPHA YOUTH GROUP
Perfect for grades middle school and high school youth. Alpha is a weekly online series which creates space for youth to enjoy engaging conversations about faith. Alpha is a safe space for youth to ask any question about life, purpose, & meaning. Alpha is about real relationships, where youth get to be themselves.
Yoga For WELLNESS
Yoga for Wellness offers participants an opportunity to align mind with body, and nourish the spirit. Yoga is offered via Zoom every Wednesday at 5:30 p.m. and Thursday at 10:00 a.m.

Advent Activity Box
Want to get more out of your Advent season? Want to know a little more about WHAT “Advent” is? Trinity is here to help with both. We observe the season of Advent as the four weeks before Christmas. This is a time of expectant waiting and preparation for both the celebration of the birth of Jesus and His eventual return. Trinity English has put together an Advent kit, full of little reminders, symbols, and activities to help your family understand more of what we do and why we do it during this Holy season. As you watch the Livestream service, these kits will help you interact with the pastors, who will have special messages and instructions related to each week of the season.
LIVESTREAM SUNDAY SERVICE
Every Sunday at 11:00 a.m. we offer a livestream of our Sunday Service to watch from the comfort of your home. The livestream is available on our website, as well as on our facebook page. We also have created resources for if you have young children in your home to help engage them in the livestream!
