Small Group Ministries

Small group ministries at Trinity Wall Street offer an abundance of activities where parishioners and friends come together for fellowship and to talk, write, eat, and pray (and sometimes knit). Join us as companions on the journey, as we share our stories, finding God in and through each other. For information about joining or facilitating a small group, contact Ellen Andrews at eandrews@trinitywallstreet.org.

Young Adults Bible Study Series

Sundays, January 12–February 9, 1pm, 76 Trinity Place

What does it mean to follow God’s path? How can we hear God’s voice even in times of wilderness—seasons of change, doubt, and uncertainty? Young adults in their 20s and 30s are invited to join Summerlee Staten for The Bible and the Way, a five-week Bible study series. Through conversation and close readings of Genesis, Exodus, and the Gospel of Mark, we’ll explore how God calls us to transformation through both hardship and the cultivation of joy. Join us for lunch before the study at 12:30pm on January 12 and February 9. Summerlee Staten has a Master of Divinity from Princeton Theological Seminary and a Master of Sacred Theology from Yale Divinity School, and she is the executive assistant to the Rev. Phil Jackson.
