Adult

The Adult Ministries' Mission Statement and Trinity’s Core Values Statement provide the framework for our ministry.

The Mission of Adult Ministries at Trinity Presbyterian Church is to encourage adults in their faith journey by helping them to discover more of God’s love, as made known in Scripture and revealed by the Holy Spirit; grow in Christ toward maturity in faith and life; and discern, develop, and use the gifts that God has given each of us to serve God and the Church.

  • Lectio Divina

    Through prayerful contemplative reading of scripture from the Message translation of the Bible, this group seeks to promote communion with God and experience the scripture as his living word for our lives today.  We share what God seems to be showing to us and pray for each other.  We meet Tuesdays from 10:15 until noon at the church campus.  Contact Margie Barkhau if you are interested.  

  • RACIAL JUSTICE ADVOCACY GROUP

    Our group was created after a year-long study of “Overcoming Racism” led by one of our pastors. The goal was to listen and learn from people of color and trusted Christian scholars so we could discern how God was calling us to respond as a church. Using a biblical perspective, we hope to make confronting injustice a priority at Trinity. 


    We realize that anti-racism work is a life-long commitment and invite you to join us on this journey. We meet on the second Thursday of each month at 7:00 PM. Join us as we strive to honor Jesus’ commandments in Micah 6:8!

  • prayer

    Prayer
    Many of the congregation at Trinity have expressed a desire to know more about Jesus Christ, the work of the Holy Spirit, and prayer. Trinity offers several ways to participate in a prayer ministry:

    Prayer Chain. The history of prayer at Trinity begins with this team of prayer warriors, who intercede daily for requests received via the chain leaders, prayer cards in the pews, and the church office. Contact Pam Tenn for information regarding the Prayer Chain.

    Sunday Prayer Stations. These stations are available once a month during the communion service for intercessory and healing prayer.

    Day of Prayer. A once-a-year event, this special day provides an opportunity for people to meet in the sanctuary for a time of focused and guided prayer.
