Current Issues Class to Start in January 2018. In our world today, news happens with instant response and little time to contemplate the issue or the outcome. A number of our members have expressed the idea of a forum to discuss and explore topics of both interest and concern.
Does an opportunity to exchange ideas and perhaps gain a different perspective on topics in and out of the news with members of our church family in a friendly atmosphere appeal to you? There is an answer. Plans are underway to revive a longstanding Trinity Ministry, the Contemporary Issues Class in January 2018. In addition to a new name, the Current Issues Class, we will have new class material on a variety of interesting topics. And as it was before, the emphasis of the class is not so much to find an answer as it is to explore the question. If you like to talk, or if you like to listen, or maybe a bit of both please consider joining us on Sunday mornings beginning in January. Questions? Interested?
Contact Paul Brezinski: firstname.lastname@example.org or Jacki Bogolia: email@example.com
