Becoming Life-Long Followers of Jesus Christ
At Holy Trinity, our hope is that every Christian would grow into a mature disciple of Jesus. Once the love of God in Jesus Christ, draws us into life with him, we are moved to give him our whole lives – our hearts, minds and bodies. We long to live with him as Lord!
Learning to live with Jesus as Lord is a life-long process. But where do you start? That's why we developed Foundations. Foundations is a three year cycle of essential courses offered on Sunday mornings after worship. They are designed to equip you to be a life-long follower of Christ.
Over a three year period, we offer the following essential classes:
- Jesus for Everyone (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

The King Through Ironic Eyes: the Intimate Biblical Portrait of King David (Upper Lobby)

We know more about King David than any one else in the Bible. Why? Why are we allowed to know the most intimate details of his life? How is this knowledge disclosed to us? How is God shown to be at work in both the strengths and weaknesses of David? How does the messianic covenant with David prepare Israel and the world for the coming of Christ?
Securing the Church's Faithful Future: how the Apostle's Creed and the Nicene Creed remind us of who we are in Christ (Upper Lobby)

Imagine the dangers of misunderstanding who Jesus was and what he did; of how God is at work in Christ; or of how the incarnation changes the world. How wondrous are these ancient statements of clarity and proclamation.
God Has a Story, Too: Reflections on Suffering & Evil: (Tower Chapel)
Led by Paul Adams January 14th - February 18th
