Small Groups and Classes for Adults 

3M to Study “Words of Life”

Our Wednesday Night Study Group, 3M, will study “Words of Life” by Adam Hamilton beginning Wednesday, January 4.  In this book of Scripture and inspiration, bestselling author Adam Hamilton brings modern eyes to the most important set of ethics in history – the Ten Commandments. Adam considers the commandments in their historical context, considering the meaning of each commandment in Hebrew, unpacking how Jesus reinterpreted them, and showing how every thou-shalt-not was intended to point to a life-giving “thou shalt.”

This 10-week study will go through Wednesday, March 15 (skipping February 22 ,  Ash Wednesday).   Our class meets 6-7:30 p.m. both in person and on Zoom.  Book are available through Cokesbury for $18.29.  Contact Judy Oguich (joguich@trinityumc.net) to register and to get the Zoom link. 

We would love for you to join us!

Innovating for Love Study

Innovating for Love Study

Have you thought about being innovators as Christians? What distinctive ways can we offer to today’s hurting world? Author Kenda Creasy Dean writes about a compassion-drive, grace-drenched version of humanity which is our model, Jesus, and invites us to think his way as social innovation because we are not called to build a better church, but we are called to go and tell about who is doing a new thing. We’ll read the book, “Innovating for Love,” together and discuss ways to be part of God’s innovation.

Place: Online (via zoom)

Registration: Please email Hung Su to register.

Dates and time: Oct. 16, 30, Nov. 6, 13, and 20 at 5:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m.
