Learning to live with Jesus as Lord is a life-long process. But where do you start? That's why we developed Foundations. Foundations consists of essential courses offered on Sunday mornings between worship services and are designed to equip you to be a life-long follower of Christ.
Over a three year period, we offer the following essential classes:
Discover Holy Trinity (What is at the heart of the Christian faith?)*
The Story (Reading and Understanding the Bible)
What Do We Believe? (Understanding the Apostles Creed)
Learning to Pray (The Lord’s Prayer)
Faith and Culture (The Mission of the Church)
A Reasonable Faith (Apologetics)
Exalt: A People of Praise (Living as Worshippers)
*Required for membership
SUNDAY MORNINGS 10:00 -11:00 am
Discovering Your Gifts and Passions
The Bible teaches us that we are all given spiritual gifts to be used to build up the church and bring glory to God. By working through a series of assessments, participants will be able to identify their unique blend of spiritual gifts, personal style and ministry passion.
Note: the materials for the assessment are $10 per participant.

The Church and Our Culture
The Church in the West finds itself in challenging times. No longer is Christianity the default setting; it is now only one option among many—and in some quarters it is not even taken all that seriously. This shift has been destabilizing, and even frightening to many. What does faithfulness look like in our present situation? Join us as we reflect on what’s happened, why it’s happened, and how the gospel can make a difference.
September 16 - November 25th with Josh Chatraw in the Courtyard Classroom
Sustaining a Healthy Marriage
Join us for a humorous, practical and biblically-based series of DVD presentations by best selling author and pastor Rev. Dr. Paul Tripp. We will explore how the redeeming grace of Jesus Christ impacts the daily realities of marriage. This class is for the newly married, those married for many years – and everyone in between, including engaged couples.
September 16 - November 25th with Claudia Greggs in the Adult Classroom
Trinity Kids Bible Club
Open to kids K-5th, meets during the Foundations Hour in the upstairs Kids classrooms. Kids can expect a snack, games, and lots of memory verses and Bible competitions! Kids will learn how to use their Bible for all its worth including finding books of the Bible, memorizing Scripture, using a concordance, treasuring up God's Word in their heart, and much more! Through May 6th.
Youth Foundations—What is the Big Story?
Our worldview is like the air we breathe—it is vastly important but often taken for granted. This class will discuss some of the overarching narratives that tell different stories about religion, science, and work. We will spend time thinking about the worldviews implicit in the Scriptures, our schools and pop culture. Donuts provided!
September 16 - October 14, with Caleb Burr in the Youth Room
