This group meets on Wednesdays (8/30, 9/13, 9/27, 10/11, 10/25, 11/8, 11/29, and 12/13) from 6:30-8:00 in the Clark Room and on Zoom to discuss the book Braiding Sweetgrass – Indigenous Wisdom, Scientific Knowledge, and the Teachings of Plants by Robin Wall Kimmerer.

In addition, Barb Matthews and Susan Edwards will guide us in contemplative practices as part of each meeting. The group provides space to explore challenging topics and to support one another in learning more about the experience of Black, Indigenous, and People of Color in America.

Trekking in the 828

In 2021 TREKKING IN THE “828” was started for our older parishioners consisting of day trips to nearby sites. The objectives were threefold:

  • Offer opportunities for parishioners over 65 to meet and interact socially with new and long-term members of the Parish

  • Offer Senior parishioners a chance to get out and about on fun and educational experiences during and after Covid

  • Provide opportunities to learn more about our community and the region, in group events with transportation provided

The program has been well received and continues for those parishioners 55 and older. Most “treks” limit the number of participants, some have entrance or guide fees, depending on what is planned. Sign-up is required and handled by Jo Rice’s office at Trinity. Details will be announced in the Parish Friday newsletter online and in Sunday bulletins for
several weeks prior to each “trek”.


If you have any questions, please call Mary Bruce or Steve Woody at (828) 274-0530 or e-mail at

extend Christ’s Kingdom through prayer, service, and evangelism. We do book studies, and service projects and offer prayers for our church members and for any special requests. Our members volunteer for many different programs at the church. Any woman interested in joining or inquiring is invited to contact Nancy McCorkle at nkmccorkle@gmail.com or 912-224-5387.
