Adult Couples & Singles
Led by: Alice Faxon & Julie Dent
Meeting Location: A267
This class is a caring community, led by class president, Alice Faxon. It is taught on a rotational basis and uses the lectionary as a teaching framework. Sundays are extra special in this class. Be sure to come closer to 9:30am as they start with a piano prelude while the class enjoys fellowship before the 9:45am start. As class begins, the announcements are given and followed by prayer and a lesson. With four teachers on rotation, there is a wide variety to lessons regarding both lecture and discussion. This class is available to join virtually through Zoom every week.

This class hosts people of all stages of life. Classes are lecture- style but class discussions and participation is highly encouraged. They are currently studying Mere Christianity by CS Lewis. In the past they have compared the books of Genesis and John and have studied the prophets. In general, they prefer lessons based on Scripture yet supplemented with videos and literature. This fun group is always up for a healthy discussion in theology.

This class is led by a gifted Bible teacher, Frances Rowell. She is strong in her knowledge of scripture and in application. She’s spunky and brings life as she teaches. While this community is serious about the Word, they are also serious about praying for one another and for keeping fellowship. They are currently studying the Gospel of Luke and plan to remain in the gospels through John and then will move into the Book of Acts.
Led by: Blake & Whitney Walker
Ages: 40’s-60’s, singles & couples
Meeting Location: E309
This class is made up of many who have children in the youth program. Starting this school year, they have a new teacher, Mark Phifer. New to Trinity last year, Mark jumped in quickly to offer a class for parents whose children were part of the confirmation class. His knowledge of scripture and compassion towards parents made Mark an instant favorite. The class will emphasize the importance of Scripture while covering foundational beliefs. Lessons will include both lecture and discussion. This class is looking for an assistant teacher and leaders to serve in a care capacity alongside Mark. This is a great season to plug in!
Led by: Angie & Van Haywood

This larger class of singles and couples has 40-50 in attendance each week. Members are between 65 and 80 years young. They use a diverse selection of materials with a combination of videos, direct Bible Study, and other materials to learn more about God’s word and deepen their faith walk. Classes are usually taught by class member volunteers. They are mission-minded and hold an auction each December which raises money each year for mission projects on the local and international level. Prayer concern and praises are taken weekly and shared by email. Throughout the year, they have parties, book clubs, and ladies’ retreats to keep them connected. They’d love to welcome you to their class!
