Trinity has joint adult groups as well as designated Men’s, Women’s, Young Adult, and College Student groups designed to provide an opportunity for adults of the parish to come together for fellowship and spiritual growth.
Sundays in Satterlee, 10:15-10:50 a.m. in Satterlee Hall
Open your Prayer Book, Change the World!
Nestled in every pew of every Episcopal Church in the country you will find a tool for changing the world. Indeed, each one of you has already held that tool in your hands. Many of you keep one in your homes. But the question is, do you know how to use it?
The Book of Common Prayer is a weapon against chaos. It is a time-tested tool for transformation–of ourselves, our community, and of our world. Join Dean Boston and a team of Trinity teachers as we learn how to open and use our Prayer Books, grow to be the people God made us to be, and change the world in Jesus’ Name.
I Love to Sing the Story, 10:15-10:50 a.m. in the Stirling Room
The hymns we sing at almost every liturgy at Trinity are statements of faith, praise, and lament. Have you ever wondered who wrote the text and the music, the theology behind the hymn, the tunes, and the stories of the hymn writers themselves? This class, led by lay members and clergy, explores these questions and more.
Contemporary Issues, 10:15-10:50 a.m. in the Daughters Room
A discussion of homelessness and climate disruption and the environment, and how we can faithfully respond to them as Christians. Led by various speakers. Contact Deborah Johnson for more information.
Episcopal 101, 10:15-10:50 a.m. in Keenan Chapel
A great starting point if you’re new to Trinity, or new to the Episcopal tradition. Led by clergy and lay facilitators.
First Sunday Fellowship
The first Sunday of each month is designated as Fellowship Sunday and no formation or children’s Sunday School classes are held. Check the current edition of the Tidings email newsletter for special events or exhibits on Fellowship Sunday.
Life Worth Living – September 11-November 20. 5:30-7:00 p.m. in the Daughters Room. If you have ever asked yourself, “What makes life good?” or “How am I to live my life?” this book study may be for you. God has given all of us The Holy Spirit. God has also given each of us different gifts to be used during our earthly ministry. We will read Life Worth Living (A Guide to What Matters Most) by Miroslav Volf, Matthew Croasmun, and Ryan McAnnally-Linz, and think about the ways we can honor the gift of our time on this earth. The book club is limited to 15 participants. Reading is required and averages 27 pages per week. The book will be provided. Facilitated by Janie Godbold.
Men’s + Women’s Bible Study + lunch – Men meet in the Stirling Room, women meet in Classroom 114. Bible study begins at noon, and lunch follows in Satterlee Hall.
Pub Theology at Trinity – 1st & 3rd Tuesdays, 6:00-7:45 p.m. Classroom 114. This is a casual gathering to discuss questions of faith over a pint of your favorite beverage. All are welcome at this table. We meet on the 1st and 3rd Tuesday each month. Feel free to bring your favorite beverage. We will also have tea and/or lemonade available.
YAMS Ladies Bible Study – 6:30 p.m. at the home of Elizabeth Beal. This group of young adult women will meet for a light dinner and a study of Genesis. This 10 week study of the first 11 chapters of Genesis will be an introduction of God fulfilling His plan and promises through generation after generation from one person to the next.
The Ark Women’s Study Group – 10:00-11:30 a.m. in the Edwards Room of the Trinity Center. Women of Trinity (as well as women from other churches) are cordially invited to join The Ark to share our responses to readings, to evolving ideas on spirituality and, often, its relationship and challenge with current events. We gather in our Ark as sisters, together traversing an ever-changing sea. This fall, we will study Ilia Delio’s The Hours of the Universe: Reflections on God, Science, and the Human Journey.
The Book of Revelation – 9:30-11:00 a.m. Classroom 114. You and I are inundated daily with bold images that threaten to define reality for us, but they are not the full picture. Blessed by Nancy Guthrie tells us the Book of Revelation looks beyond the space and time we know and allows us to see directly into heaven. The beings and events recorded there are startling because they are intended to jolt us out of the complacency we have toward the powerful evils of this age. But, Revelation also reminds us about God’s plan from eternity past for the full restoration of His kingdom and strengthens our hearts with the knowledge that He is in full control of all things.
This organization provides an opportunity for the men of the parish to come together for fellowship and spiritual growth. Our goal is to provide all the men at Trinity with a group through which to grow in our relationship with Christ and each other.
Our Daughters of the Holy Cross and Daughters of the King groups aim to bring women together to grow in spirituality.
Trinity’s Young Adults Married + Single Ministry offers many varied opportunities for formation and fellowship. It is in and through community that we learn most deeply about God, ourselves, and each other.
Trinity Episcopal Cathedral is the University of South Carolina’s neighborhood church. College students are welcome and participate in much of the Young Adults programming, including outreach events and community building.
