9:30 – 10:30 a.m. Classes
PATHFINDERS (Room 317)
Pathfinders is a class for young individuals and young families at all stages of their faith journeys. Our class offers opportunities for members to get to know other families in similar stages of life and to share day-to-day experiences with each other in an open and trusting environment. Through faith sharing we strive to build lasting relationships with God and each other that grow inside and outside the walls of Trinity. We are a discussion-based class, and typically follow religious literature that requires little to no reading or work outside of class participation. We regularly have guest speakers and leaders from throughout the church. We also get together regularly for social events including cook-outs, game watching parties, and informal dinners.

CHRISTIAN BELIEFS TODAY (Room 323)
This multi-generational class discusses current world and biblical events as they relate to our individual faith journeys, and how we, as Christians, live our beliefs and influence our world. We incorporate historic materials and diverse contemporary authors’ perspectives in our discussions, and often use FaithLink, a weekly publication from Cokesbury, as a study guide. Food, socializing, and supportive friendships are our joy and strength. Please come join us – we’re saving a place for you.

Life Choices members draw from experiences at home, with family and kids, work, church and more to learn about being Christians in today’s world.
