Formation at Holy Trinity
At Holy Trinity, Christian Formation is one way that the Holy Spirit works to grow God’s people ever more into Christ’s own likeness. Through intentional formation, we encounater the riches of our inheritance and the witness of the saints across time and space. Opportunities for Christian Formation include classes, small groups, bible study, practices of prayer and service, and occasional speakers from the wider church.
Formation looks different in this season during our hiatus from being in our buildings, but it continues. Some classes-- such as the Men’s Room, Life in Christ, and Holy Moly classes-- continue to meet online, or in an online and in-person hybrid. For more information about how to connect with particular online offerings, please contact The Rev. Jenna Strizak.
Godly Play (Ages 2.5-PreK): Children learn the story of God’s people through parable, sacred story, silence, and liturgical action and become more fully aware of God’s presence in their lives. (Montessori based with music, art, and plenty of play.)
Holy Moly (Grades K-5): Using fun animation and creative play, Holy Moly helps children engage in the sweep of the biblical story: God’s redeeming love for God’s people through Jesus Christ.
Life in Christ: This class, for women of all ages, involves studying, praying, learning, and a healthy bit of laughing and crying.
Men’s Room: Adult men of all ages discuss the gospel reading from the previous Sunday using a simple curriculum to spur discussion.
Special Online Offerings:
Youth Formation: An online cohort discussing White Fragility with theological reflection, for youth (9th grade and up) and parents.
Small Groups: Seasonal opportunities to connect with other Holy Trinity parishioners in study, spiritual storytelling, and prayer. Most recently small groups read through Acts in Eastertide. Soon there will be an in-person (socially-distanced, outdoor) option for small groups beginning this fall.
Parish Book Study: Beginning in October 2020, all parishioners are invited to read After Whiteness by Willie James Jennings, with group discussion via Zoom. How do we reflect theologically on our Christian formation when it comes to racialization? How do we let Christ shape us instead of the malformed ways the world shapes us?
Contemplative Prayer and Discussion Group: Join a group of parishioners deepening their commitment to practicing contemplative prayer, and discussing the work of those saints across the history of the Church whose own contemplative practices offer us a witness of faithfulness to the risen Christ.
