Contemplative Prayer Group
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
