Summer Sunday School Begins July 6 at 9:30 a.m.We will have Sunday School each week during the summer as we have for the past several years, beginning at the same time as the morning worship service - 9:30 a.m. July 6 through August 31. Children entering kindergarten and older can join in our fun. We will continue to use lesson plans from the Episcopal Church, here
We will be spending as much time outside as we can. Please dress casually. Friends are welcomed!
We will begin each class in the Sunday School room and typically go outside to the garden area just outside the front doors of the Church as soon as we can. We will enter into Church at the Peace Exchange.
The nursery will continue to be staffed each week for infants and younger children.
"BIG PICTURE" STUDY GROUP TO MEETThe Big Picture study group that met during Lent to study Richard Rohr’s book Falling Upward will convene again to view and discuss "The Power of Myth," a six-session series of discussions between Bill Moyers and anthropological philosopher Joseph Campbell about commonalities in world religions, myths, and philosophical traditions.
Continuing Sundays through July 27 at 6:00 pm., "The Power of Myth" discussion group will be meeting in the Undercroft of Trinity Church.
All are invited to attend. This series of video discussions was made 25 years ago, and has been re-issued with added materials and interviews; it was considered innovative at the time, and still today poses powerful insights into many of life's deepest questions. If you have further questions about the film series or the meetings, ask Karen Peeler, Stuart Hobbs, or Jean Cotting.
