Trinity Episcopal Church is committed to empowering its members in their lifelong journey of discipleship, hoping that every parishioner of Trinity Church will dedicate herself to spiritual development. Please consider taking time to share some these experiences with the Trinity community.

We offer a variety of open discussions:

The Forum is our primary religious education program.  People of all ages are welcome to this wide-ranging conversation, which meets Sundays 10:30-11:05 a.m. in the Great Hall during the academic year. Announcements begin at 10:25am. Topics have included a session on Shape Note Singing, a series on the Liturgical Arts, “Meet the Choral Scholars”, and a few good coffee hours.

Book Discussions  We enjoy sharing our favorite books together. Check the events calendar, bulletin or the first floor bulletin board for the most up-to-date information.

Education for Ministry is a program of theological education-at-a-distance of the School of Theology of the University of the South. EfM is a committed group that covers the basics of a theological education in the Old and New Testaments, church history, liturgy and theology in a small-group format. Every baptized person is called to ministry. EfM provides people with the education to carry out that ministry. Interested parties are strongly encouraged speak with Gloria Hasler (ghasler@indiana.edu) or a parish staff person.

 

Small Groups

Breaking Bread is a time for adults in their mid-twenties to late-thirties to gather in an informal and open environment to discuss our religion, spirituality and other questions. We usually meet the first Friday of the month, often at the church before heading out to a local restaurant for the evening. Childcare is frequently provided. Check the Sunday bulletin for times and locations.

Daughters of the King is an order of Episcopal Women dedicated to a life of prayer, service and evangelism. Past programs have highlighted The Amish, Virtual Prayer retreats, handling conflict, book reviews, The Lenten Season, Mary Magdalene, and many more. We help with church events such as the Ministry Fair, Parents Night Out, Vacation Bible School, the Easter reception, and community soup meals in winter months. We meet on the 2nd Monday of the month at 5:30pm in the Church Library, or check Trinty’s website for meeting times & location. All women interested in loving service and spiritual fellowship are welcome.

For our Newcomers

Trinity Inc. = Incorporation & Inclusion for Newcomers

Joining a new community is exciting and challenging. This is why Trinity Church offers a year-long program to help new members grow in their understanding of God, community, our parish and the Episcopal Church. We meet 7 times (about once a month), between September and May. You are warmly encouraged to participate if you’ve been at Trinity for two years or less, though all are invited to participate no matter how long you’ve been here. Programs include “Meet the Clergy & Staff,” “What does it mean to ‘Join the Church?’” and many other topics. A simple meal is served and childcare is provided.
