A number of adult learning experiences are offered as lifelong learning associated with our intent to continue in the covenant God made with us in Holy Baptism. We offer Coffee, Conversations and Christ (CCC) on Sunday mornings between worship services (in parallel with Sunday School for our youth). From time to time adult bible studies are offered during weekdays and evenings. These studies led by the Pastor or lay-leaders respond to continuing desires and needs for faith based learning. Devotional learning opportunities are frequently offered during the Advent and Lenten seasons.
I pray that the fellowship of your faith may become effective through the knowledge of every good thing which is in you for Christ's sake - Philemon 1:6
Trinity's evangelism (outreach) programs seek to support both our church members and our surrounding community. Programs include distributing communion to our shut-ins, help our members connect with each other by maintaining a church pictorial directory, sponsorship of our missionary programs; training and scheduling greeters and hosts who welcome current members and newcomers both before and after worship.
Trinity has a strong history of promoting Christian Fellowship dating back to 1882 when we hosted Saturday night dinners in Lowell. We continue that tradition today by providing a variety of opportunities to strengthen the fellowship between congregation members and our community, both spiritually and socially; help integrate new members into the life of the congregation; and encourage mutual cooperation, trust and enjoyment for members of our congregation.
We host a coffee hour after each of our two Sunday services to provide an opportunity for members and visitors to chat and become better acquainted with each other. A variety of events are scheduled throughout the year. We offer Wednesday evening suppers before our Advent and Lenten mid-week services. Lunch and Learn pot luck luncheons provide the opportunity for members to share information, news, or an activity together. Our annual TrinityFest event provides our members, neighbors, and friends the opportunity to kick off summer in a festive atmosphere with food, music and games. We host funeral luncheons following funeral services held at Trinity, providing grieving families and friends a meal to share together in a welcoming place. Our Sankta Lucia festival is a popular community event.
Property Work Days - God's House, Our Hands
The Trinity family works together and prays together. Our Property Committee has work days that often involve fellowship, friendship along with the steady work of keeping God's house and grounds in good shape.
Trinity members enjoy reading and witnessing God's faith together. We explore a variety of topics through our book group. The church has a well organized collection of books and other media that can be borrowed. New members are always welcome.
Trinity Women's Night Out - "TWNO"
Our aim is to strengthen fellowship between the women of our congregation both spiritually and socially, and to help integrate new women into the life of the congregation. We do this by offering enjoyable monthly activities that help build relationships between those attending and strengthen our ties to one another, to our church, and to God.
Some of our activities have included Women's Weekend at Camp Calumet, discussing a book, enjoying a meal at a local restaurant, seeing a movie followed by discussion and social time, creating painted pottery and fabric art, playing mini-golf and pool, taking a Pilates class, and working together on handcrafts with assistance and instruction for the less experienced (including knitting, crocheting, scrap booking, and jewelry-making).
