Trinity School is designed to encourage growth into Christ’s likeness through the discipline of study. Offerings are structured around three terms: Fall, Spring, and Summer. These terms are intentionally mindful of the rhythms of the liturgical year, providing a helpful compliment to our weekly Sunday worship.
Each Term of Trinity School consists of three distinct offerings: courses, workshops, and lectures. Classes are the heart of Trinity School, offering studies in multiple tracks, such as Bible, Formation, Theology, and Practical. Workshops are one or two part intensives that focus on specialized topics, such as the Liturgical Calendar, the Book of Common Prayer, or How to Read the Bible. Lectures are offered at least once per term and feature guest speakers, including members of our community, friends of Trinity, as well as well-known invited guests.
Online registration for Trinity School opens four Sundays before the term begins. Payment is due at sign up. To register click on the titles below. For more information on education at Trinity, please contact Tripp Prince.
“Our citizenship is in heaven,” but how does one begin to live that out? Paul’s invitation to the Philippians to embody the values and ethics of an alternate kingdom will be our guide in seeking an answer to that question. For four weeks we’ll chart a course through Paul’s epistle to see how we might step more fully into this kingdom community. We will consider how self-giving love and the abandonment of ego are at the heart of what it means to follow Jesus and how this is the way to a life of patient and joyful contentedness.

Keeping Time is a series of workshops offered throughout the year that are meant to help us enter into new liturgical seasons in thoughtful and meaningful ways. Each workshop takes time to explore the historic origins of the given season, ways in which it has developed and been observed in various times and places, and offers practical advice on how to enter into the themes of each given season as a means of ongoing growth into Christ’s likeness.
