Why Community Groups?
In a culture of individualism and personal choice, spirituality tends to be highly personal and a private matter. However, the Christian spiritual tradition offers an alternative path. There are 43 places in the New Testament where the followers of Jesus are encouraged to share life together and embody love—through service, prayer, sharing food, encouragement, etc. Most Calgarians live typically modern, urban lifestyles. Often our busyness leads to social isolation, loneliness, and a solitary spiritual journey that is lacking in support and companionship. We don’t believe that Sunday worship celebrations alone provide the meaningful personal connections that are essential to vital spirituality. Community Groups provide a place where that can happen.
Community Groups at Trinity
The Book Club—led by Darlene. This group meets monthly to discuss a book and enjoy good conversation. If you are interested in learning more, contact Darlene: 403-226-2512
Bev and Steve’s Group—led by Bev and Steve. They are meeting on Tuesday nights, 7:30 – 9:30pm. Their format is as follows: Meeting weekly for now, but may go to every other week. Group members take turns bringing a question, issue, or current event that they would like to discuss and learn how to view through a spiritual lens or perspective. The gathering closes with a time of “checking in” on how life is going, and then a time of prayer. Please contact Steve or Bev for information: 403-984-2451
Lauren’s Group—led by Lauren. Our group meets every second Tuesday (usually at my place which is in West Hillburst, but more like Parkdale ). We meet around 6:15-6:30 for dinner and then start some kind of intentional discussion around 7:30 and aim to be finishing up around 9 pm. We meet and study topics we hope will challenge us and be integrated in our lives and a reflection of the working out of our faith. We don't have a specific community project but support each other in what we do individually and are keeping our eyes open to opportunities. If you would like to join us, please contact me: Lauren 403-710-1549
