Building Community in the Name of the Father, the Son, & the Holy Spirit
In Acts 2:42–47, we learn that the earliest Christian community was devoted to five things: Bible study, community, sharing meals, praying, and reaching out. These five characteristics form the backbone of the vision for Community Groups at Trinity.
It is our hope that Community Groups will become the primary place where you are known and cared for at Trinity. It is within these smaller communities that men and women can build deep relationships and practice applying the gospel to their lives.
Groups can meet anywhere: homes, offices, coffee shops, or even church buildings. All groups are led by trained lay-leaders from the congregation who receive continued oversight and support from pastoral staff.
Sharing Life and Friendship in Christ
Community Groups meet to to study our faith, pray together, share their lives, and reach out together. These groups facilitate the formation of new friendships in Christ and deepen existing relationships. Community Groups are a vital way that we live into our mission to "Love God, Love People, Share Life."
This spring, community groups will be going through a 5-week series examining Lectio Divina. Those who have done The Prayer Course will recognize Pete Grieg and the format of the series, which is accessible through the 24-7 Prayer website.
Each week, there will be a 15-18 minute video followed by discussion and an opportunity to practice Lectio Divina together as a group. Since Ash Wednesday is February 14, this is the schedule we will follow so we can complete the series by the end of spring:
Week of February 18: Introducing Lectio Divina
Week of March 3: Read > Hearing God in the Bible
Week of March 17: Meditate > Hearing the Holy Spirit in our Thoughts
(skipping March 31 since that's Easter Sunday and the beginning of spring break)
Week of April 7: Pray > Responding to God in Prayer and Prophecy
Week of April 21: Contemplate > Hearing God in the Whole World
If you are interested in joining one of our current groups, please reach out to the leader(s) to find out more about their schedule and when/where they meet.
