Our hope is that our adult education and program offerings will stir you to ask more question, seek more connection, and wonder how this life in Christ inspires us to love God and neighbor.

CLASSES AND PROGRAMS
Sacred Ground Series
Epiphany’s Vestry and Racial Justice Group and members of Holy Trinity Parish are participating in the Sacred Ground dialogue series, part of The Episcopal Church’s Becoming Beloved Community initiative on racial reconciliation. Sacred Ground is a 10 session dialogue series on race, grounded in faith. The series is built around a powerful online curriculum of documentary films and readings that focus in Indigenous, Black, Latino, and Asian/Pacific Islander American histories as they intersect with European American histories. The curriculum confronts the historical roots of systemic racism and examines how that history still shapes American institutions and social interactions today.
While registration is closed to new participants, the series includes two core books Waking Up White by Debby Irving, and Jesus and the Disinherited by Dr. Howard Thurman that you may which to read.
Islam 101 Video Series
Our introductory series on Islam ended August 22. Many thanks to everyone who participated in the series and especially to Jim Hoesterey for his expert leadership in making our time together so meaningful. Much gratitude also to Paul Hinson who edited the sessions and made them available for future use on our YouTube channel (link below). Finally, please remember to mark your calendars for September 26, that afternoon we'll participate in a service project with the Ismaili Community in Decatur. Be on the lookout for more details soon.
Our Tract Rack is located just inside the red doors of our church. These little booklets are for you to take home. A donation is requested, but if you don’t have the means at the time, please feel free to help yourself. There is a wide variety of well written and thoughtful short booklets. We hope you will use this resource in your daily devotions, spiritual journey, or just to consider questions you’ve always wanted to explore.
