Seasons of Growth and Change

All ages

Journey with us as we make our pilgrimage through seasons of Creation, Stewardship, and Advent. Where do we come from? Why are we here? What will we become?

  • Discover our roots, our place, our responsibilities
  • Reflect on our diversity, our resources, our call
  • Become connected, inspired, active

Seasons of Growth and Change is Trinity’s second season of intergenerational Sunday morning learning. Learn more about our first year—Jesus: Rebel with a Cause—here.

Registration is not required, but it is helpful. Adults may register here; children may register here; youth may register here.
