Bible StudiesCome Together With Us.
Adult Christian Formation
Sunday Morning Forum Hour (September through May)
9:05am – 9:45am
These groups plumb the depths of Bible, exploring the relevance of the living word of God in our lives today. Recently they have studied the books of Galatians, Ruth and Esther, as well as undertaking a study of the life of David, using published works by Robert Alter and David Pinsky.
The in-depth explorations have enabled the Bible study participants to better understand the relevance of the Bible today, and to engage with the lectionary readings on a weekly basis.
Wednesday Morning Men’s Bible Study

Sunday Stories – A Children’s Bible Program
Sundays during the 10am service
Trinity offers a unique program for children from pre-K through 5th grade (and before and beyond those ages if you want!). Sunday Stories is a class that studies old and new testament bible stories during the 10am service from September through May.
Children and their families begin worship in the church for the opening hymn and prayer, after which the priest will invite the young ones to gather in the rear of the sanctuary with the Sunday Stories adult leaders. The children are led across the driveway to Honyman Hall where their own program space is set up in the Hawes Room.
After an opening prayer, the adult leaders share an old or new testament bible story with the children. After hearing the day’s story, there is a time to talk about it, act out parts of it, or play a game based on the Biblical lesson. No one is required to sit still, and asking questions is encouraged – this is their time to explore and get to know God.
Following the lesson and activity, the children offer prayers, recite a simple creed, and then conclude their time together. The adult leaders will escort the children back to church where they arrive just in time to exchange the peace and prepare for Eucharist.
