Beneath the Skin: Understanding Jesus’ Commandment (John 13:34-35)

Summer Study on Zoom
Dates: Tuesdays, Beginning July 14, 2020
Time: 6:30 pm
Location: Zoom Meeting

The purpose of this effort is to create conversation around the discussion of Race that is unique to America. We propose a safe place within our faith community for discussions. The books suggested offer various perspectives as a jumping off place for discussion. We will begin each evening with Devotion or a Biblical message from a minister.

Discussions will follow in breakout rooms on Zoom based on the book you selected to read.

Anxiety and Grief
Dates: Wednesday, July 29, 2020
Time: 7:30 pm
Location: Zoom Meeting

For those who have lost loved ones and are dealing with grief during the isolation and uncertainty in our country at this time, it’s extra hard. Recognizing this, Trinity will be offering two sessions in July prepared by Church Initiative, the creator of GriefShare, for summer grief support via video conferencing.
The information is real, practical, hopeful and easy to watch. We will watch together and then have an opportunity to share and find healing within a confidential group discussion.
