Adult Christian Education

No matter where you are on your faith journey, Trinity strives to offer adult Christian formation and education opportunities to meet your needs.   All are welcome to come and explore.  For further information, please contact Rev. Ruth Hanusa, Canon for Parish Life, at 775-329-4279 or at

  • Adult Forum:  It is anticipated the adult forum will resume weekly discussions focusing on the Gospel for that particular Sunday.
  • Ecumenical Bible Study:  Although existing for some years prior, the Ecumenical Bible Study group became a part of Trinity’s adult education program in 2020.  This group focuses on literary and historical aspects of the Bible.  As it includes members from various religious traditions, the name “ecumenical” is in the title.  This group meets every other week during the academic year, requires no preparation and uses only the Bible as a text.
  • Bibles and Books:  This group meets on Sunday mornings to discuss assigned reading from a variety of interesting books.  There is no designated leader, so you will not be under any stress to lead if that’s not your thing. The direction of the conversation is determined by the study book and the interest of the participants.
  • Episcopal 101:  Episcopal 101 / Confirmation Class:   These classes are for anyone transferring to us from other faith traditions, adults seeking baptism, and those who are just searching for a home church.  Members wishing to renew their understanding of our Christian faith and Episcopal practices are also welcome to attend.  Classes are usually held in the spring and fall.
