Small Groups

There are many opportunities for adult growth, discovery, learning and deepening in your Christian faith

As Christians, we are all called to move along the path of discipleship. Some may be just at the beginning of the journey, perhaps unsure where or how to start. Others have already delved deeply into matters of faith and discipleship and await new opportunities. Part of discipleship involves being connected with others, finding traveling companions for the journey.

Discover the opportunities on these pages to move further on the path of discipleship, no matter where you are on the path. I hope you will take time to be part of our Trinity small groups to discover the power of those traveling companions.

Small Group Ministry

Small Groups Available

Small Groups are highly recommended as they are meant to help you find ways to become more intentional in your Christian journey by sharing with you the many opportunities to join with others in our Trinity family to study, to serve, to pray, to fellowship, to explore, to give, and more. There is such power in gathering with our Christian sisters and brothers, and if you haven’t had an experience like this yet, please take the opportunity to do so. If you are an experienced small grouper, invite someone along with you. If you haven’t been to a small group in a while, please include a group in your plan for the coming months.

Trinity Disclipine Path coverThe Trinity Discipleship Path

Discipleship is both a thing that God does in us through grace and a thing that we work at ourselves. Grace is God’s love for us. Grace is an undeserved, free gift to us from God. Grace paves the way ahead of us and hems us in from behind. God’s grace is there before we know we need it or want it. God’s grace brings us close to God and aligns our hearts, minds, and lives with God. Forgiveness is rooted deeply in grace. Grace is what wipes the slate clean and allows us new beginnings. Grace shapes us into people who love as God loves. Discipleship is largely about letting God do these things in us.
