Trinity will hold a Community Conversation each month as part of
Life Together: A Year of Celebration
Why Community Conversations?
Healing is an interesting word. We always hope for proper healing after a surgical procedure for our bodies. But, healing can also be associated with our mental stability and our emotional state too. Clearly, we Americans have had much to ponder over the last several months. Sometimes, healing is as simple as talking and listening.
All communities have an assortment of leaders who help to mold and shape our paths. Some leaders garner headlines frequently, some work quietly behind the scenes. This fall Trinity is introducing a new program designed to invite community leaders to our church for conversation.
We hope you will consider attending these events, and we hope you will consider inviting a friend or neighbor to come along too. All Community Conversation will take place in the Trinity UMC Sanctuary with a 7 PM start time. The last 15 minutes of the program will focus on questions from the audience. Conversations will also be livestreamed right here!
Any questions, please contact Bill Pike: firstname.lastname@example.org.
