The face of Christian Education at Trinity is diverse and changing. Trinity challenges itself as a church to provide Christ-centered learning experiences and opportunities for Christian growth for people of all ages.
Adult Sunday School is offered at 9:30 am between Sunday morning services. Other Sunday School classes are held at the same time. Adult education on Sunday mornings explores Christian faith and the scriptures in a number of venues.
There is usually:
1.) A Revised Common Lectionary based scripture study
2.) A Biblical overview class of some kind
3.) A presentation in the Parish Hall by a special guest speaker. Topics in the Parish Hall presentation have included a wide range of Christian response to current issues in our community.
Our weekly Prayer Breakfast ministry to the homeless or low income individuals and/or families is run by teams of volunteers and offers many folks from our congregation an education of a different kind.
Wednesday evenings at Trinity offer opportunities for food, fun, and fellowship. During our regular schedule in the fall, winter, and spring, our weekly Wednesday Night Parish Family Dinners at 5:30 are followed by Bible studies and classes that center around church history and worship, current Christian issues, and theological questions. Trinity Choir (adults) rehearsal is at 6:30 pm upstairs in the Choir Room with Joseph Golden and Paul Culp.
Trinity is a church very involved in the community, in the world, and in the discourse and work of the broader church at large. As the hands and feet of Christ, we care about ministering to those outside the walls of the church. But we also minister to one another as members of Christ.
Many special opportunities combine education with outreach, and serve to grow the church and its individuals while they serve others. Mission trips to foreign countries and to impoverished areas of our own country are common. These trips especially engage our youth. Other trips simply to have fun are common as well. Involvement in the Columbus Area Habitat for Humanity is strong; various men’s and women’s Bible studies are held weekly, as well as a number of prayer groups, and our Lenten Luncheon series brings in exciting speakers that engage the entire community every spring.
