Christian Education Classes
Christian education classes and opportunities are offered throughout the year at Trinity and are open for all to attend. Below you will find our current class offerings.
SUNDAYS @ 9:30 AM
The Acts of the Apostles:
Disruption or Conversion of the Empire?
This eight-week class will study the New Testament book, The Acts of the Apostles. In this book, the author tells (or reports) the story of the early church and its mission to spread Jesus’ kingdom message to the ends of the earth. As the apostles preach, teach, and heal, they are accused of being un-patriotic atheists who are hell-bent on disrupting the Empire’s law and order. This class will explore the subversive nature of the early church, its structure, struggles, and compromises, as well as draw parallels to today’s modern context.
Week 4 (3-17-19): Apostolic Challenge
Week 5 (3-24-19): Apostolic Change
Week 6 (3-31-19): Apostolic Compromise
Week 7 (4-7-19): Apostolic Colleagues
Week 8 (4-28-19): Apostolic Champion

Sundays @ 10:30 AM

SUNDAYS AT 9:15 AM
It is often said that you can believe anything you want and still be an Episcopalian. Is this a fair statement? What are the sources of authority that Episcopalians use to develop belief? Come explore how scripture, tradition, reason, and experience help shape Episcopal theology. These classes are especially helpful to people who are new to the church.
Confirmation is the religious rite in which baptized Christians make a mature and public deceleration of their faith and receive the laying on of bands by the bishop.
Confirmation is the normative means through which Christians from other denominations join the Episcopal church and also serves as an opportunity for young people to affirm and claim their faith.
Confirmation classes are held every year during the season of Lent (late Winter/early Spring) and are required for those seeking confirmation. These classes are educational, spiritual, and formative.
