Our group members represent many walks of life and are interested in a wide range of topics. They are people who have thought deeply about their faith and consider such matters as spiritual growth, science and religion, history, poetry, literature, ethics and world issues of Christian concern from a Christian perspective. Class members freely express their varied opinions. A short devotion opens each class. The friendship and mutual understanding of class members is deepened through quarterly social gatherings. Through our "Wings Fund" we support several groups in need. (9:30, E204)
The mission of this family-oriented class is to not only be hearers of the Word, but also doers (James 1:22). Our desire is to grow in God's Word together through study and to live out that study in service to others in Christ's name. We are a group seeking to incorporate our entire family in our own spiritual growth and action. The class studies a variety of Bible-based topics and builds a supportive community through social events and mission projects. (11, Youth Bldg). New participants are always welcome!
The Fisherman Class is a supportive, caring group of mature adults of all ages, who begin class singing gospel/praise songs, then study God's word using the Uniform Bible Series, taught by 8-10 rotating teachers. We follow with joys and concerns, then close with prayer and praise. Participation does not end on Sunday mornings as we donate our time, service, and money to the community Food Bank, Milk Fund, Family Promise dinner, Trinity Youth, and to many groups inside and outside Trinity. We support and encourage each other during good and tough times like an extended family. We start to sing at 9:30 on Sunday morning. All are welcome. (9:40, E232)
Marriage & More is a class for married couples ages 20's-40's.

Misty Mornings is an eclectic group of adults of all ages who invite the Holy Spirit's presence through the reading of books by Christian authors, such as The Jesus I Never Knew by Philip Yancey, Beautiful Outlaw by John Eldredge, All Creation Sings and I Bought a House on Gratitude Street by J. Ellsworth Kalas. We listen for God in our lives through a focus in prayer. Shared leadership allows all to participate in a warm, friendly environment. We support one another in spiritual growth no matter where one is on their faith journey. While our interactive discussions can be at times dynamic and spontaneous, they are contemplative and guided by the Holy Spirit.. In addition to our readings we also participate in global and local outreach projects and provide support to Trinity's Order of Saint Luke's healing ministry. We occasionally participate as a group in an outdoor setting or have a meal together. (9:40, E207)
