Adult Formation

Christian formation for adults at Holy Trinity is offered in a variety of settings.

Sunday Forums are offered between the two morning services, from 9:30-10:15, during the academic year.  Some offerings are multi-week units; others are one- or two-session discussions about a topic.  All are welcome at any time; there’s rarely any preparation requested of those who attend.  Most of the forums are led by lay members; sometimes the clergy teach; and occasionally a guest speaker joins us.
