New Adult Classes:

 

Guided Prayer, Scripture, Music, and Mandala Drawing

Participants will be treated to a peaceful, calm, guided experience of prayer and artful expression. David McKenzie has been offering this to others in the Denton Community and now we at Trinity are blessed to benefit from his expertise. If you are an introvert, this class is definitely for you. Or, if you just want to experience something peaceful and calming in a class setting, come on along. After the initial eight weeks, participants will select how they want to craft the class for the concluding four weeks. David McKenzie, guide

 

Galatians and James  A Kerygma Bible Study

Galatians - With an impassioned eloquence, the Apostle Paul puts forth his doctrine of justification by grace alone. Lest anyone mistake this liberty as permission to ignore the moral code, Paul reasserts what he perceives as the true function of the Mosaic Law in relation to God's grace manifested in Christ.  

JAMES - The author of this small but mighty letter is certainly not in disagreement with Paul—salvation is found solely through Christ. Moreover, both writers would probably agree that Christian life should be expressed by deeds of charity.  Alex Simmons, teacher

WHY?  Making Sense of God’s Will 4 weeks

Where is God when tragedy and suffering strike? When the ground shakes, and a poor nation's economy is destroyed; when the waters rise, washing away a community's hopes and dreams; when a child suffers neglect and abuse; when violence tears apart nations where is God? If God is all powerful, and if each one of us is a beloved child of God, then how can God allow tragedy and suffering to mar his creation?  In Why?, best-selling author Adam Hamilton brings fresh insight to the age-old question of how to understand the will of God. Rejecting simplistic answers and unexamined assumptions, he lays out core ideas for comprehending God's plan for the world.

          This class will be taught by Christian Education Committee members and friends.s

 

Summer Sunday School for Trinity Children

Trinity offers year-round Sunday School for everyone. Because of availability of teachers, adults are asked to teach on a rotating basis throughout the summer. This gives the regular teachers a much-deserved rest.  Also, it offers lots of adults the opportunity to interact with Trinity’s awesome little ones.  If you are interested in helping out some this summer by teaching Trinity children, please contact Beth Thompson, DCE.  You will receive your week of curriculum and accompanying materials in early May.  The summer dates are Sunday June 3 through Sunday August 26, 13 Sundays.  

 

All adults at Trinity who are in classrooms with children and youth pass a nationwide criminal and sex offender background check before beginning to teach.  The background check is conducted online by DCE Beth Thompson
