Adult Ministry

Trinity members and guests enjoy several opportunities for study, spiritual growth and fellowship. We offer Sunday School classes September through May, discussion groups, social outings, retreats and other events throughout the year.

Our adult Sunday School classes include:

Bible Study (Parlor) – this lecture-style class studies scripture within the historical context of the Bible and leaves ample time for discussion. Currently, we are studying the New Testament. 

The Well (Heritage Room) – This class begins with fellowship and then discusses scripture relating to that day’s sermon. 

Contact the church office at 704-366-3554 for more information or Reverend Jodi Martin, Director of Christian Formation and Youth.

Youth

At Trinity, we help our youth build stronger relationships with God, our church family and our community. We believe in growing together, welcoming all.

  • Sunday School (Grades 6-12, Youth Center) – This class explores scripture as it relates to life situations and social issues.
  • Sunday Night Youth Fellowship: During the school year, our 6th-12th graders eat dinner and meet in the Youth Center  from 5– 6:30 p.m.  
  • We encourage our youth to grow as leaders in Worship. They read scripture on Sunday mornings, participate as acolytes, ushers and crucifers. Other growth and leadership opportunities include Youth Sunday and serving as elders on our Session. We encourage our youth to attend the summer Montreat and Massanetta Youth Conferences. 
  • Trinity’s Youth serve and learn through our partnership with The Urban Ministry Center, Mission Trip, and Souper Bowl of Caring. Our annual Silent Auction and BBQ help fund our mission travels.

For more information on programs for children and youth, contact Rev. Jodi Martin, Director of Christian Formation and Youth.

Montreat Retreat

For more than 40 years, Trinity members and guests have claimed the third weekend in October at Montreat’s Assembly Inn.  Whether it’s climbing to the top of Lookout Mountain, shopping, visiting a microbrewery, singing by the fire, taking a stroll around Lake Susan, watching football together, or napping on Saturday afternoon, there is something for all ages.
