FORMATION FOR ADULTS
Trinity offers an abundance of adult formation opportunities throughout the week in which we explore our faith through prayer, study, and fellowship. Through these groups, we grow in our faith as a community seeking to understand more deeply how to love God and love our neighbor to make a difference in the world.
During the COVID-19 pandemic and the suspension of in-person gatherings, our Adult Formation opportunities are now all online, from weekly Bible studies on Zoom to Sunday Adult Forum series on YouTube. You can find all our recorded formation series via this link. Other opportunities include:
Our Women's Bible Study meets on Zoom, Tuesdays at 9:30 a.m.
Our Contemplative Prayer Group meets on Zoom, Wednesdays at 10:30 a.m.
Our Rector's Bible Study meets on Zoom, Thursdays at 7:30 p.m.
Our Men's Bible Study meets on Zoom, Fridays at 7:30 a.m.

Sunday Adult Forum:
Unity in Times of Division
Unity in Times of Division, A Live Sunday Adult Forum at Trinity Episcopal Church in Asheville, NC. Join Trinity’s Rector, Scott White, on Sunday, November 1, from 9:30a to 10:30 for a conversation on the power of the Gospel’s call for unity.
We live in a time where leaders from many quarters of society, political, religious, and even business, believe that dividing individuals is a tool for success. Yet, as followers of Jesus, we are called to unity.
As we approach the November 3rd election, we come together and consider if it is possible to hold differing philosophies of politics, theology, and other societal perspectives while remaining united in Christ. Is it possible to be united with Christians who differ from us without giving up our values and passions?

OPPORTUNITIES FOR ADULTS
NOTE: At this time, in-person gatherings are suspended. We look forward to resuming many of these in-person opportunities in the future. If you want more information about any of them, please don't hesitate to contact us.
FELLOWSHIP COMMITTEE- The fellowship team is to lift up and promote fellowship among all members of the parish through events, meals, and receptions.
KITCHEN VOLUNTEER- Breakfast is served every Sunday in Tuton Hall at 9:00 am. Volunteers are needed to cook. Cost: $4.00
FAMILY FRIDAY- Several times throughout the year families with young children (through elementary school) gather together for fun, fellowship and outreach. We usually meet on Friday evenings (thus the name!) with activities including cook outs by the river, Tourist baseball games, bowling, fall festivals and other family friendly activities. This gives families a chance to get to know one another better than is often possible on those hectic Sunday mornings! We offer nursery care for infants and crawlers for some of these activities.
FELLOWSHIP DINNERS- Help once a month to cook dinner, set up the parish hall, collect money, serve the meal or light clean up.
PHOTOGRAPHER- Occasionally climb behind a camera to visually record parish events.
TRINITY WOMEN'S BOOK CLUB 1- Covered dish supper meetings six times a year in members' homes ̶ casual, fun and informative! Contact Erwin Gunnels for more information.
TRINITY WOMEN'S BOOK CLUB 2- Meets six times a year in the Clark Room at Trinity ̶ casual, fun and informative! Contact Barbara Fotinos for more information.
SUNDAY SUPPER CLUB- Have you ever thought how nice it would be to get to know some of your fellow Trinitarians better? You know, the people you always see but don’t interact with either because they might go to a different service, attend another Sunday School class, or don’t sit near “your spot” in the pew. Sunday Supper Club has been created to create new friendships and strengthen others – all while having a good time! Groups of no more than 24 people will get together four times a year on a Sunday evening for dinner. These groups will consist of a true mix of people – all ages from all parts of town, newcomers and oldcomers alike. Each season 6 of the people in your group will plan a dinner at one of their homes. The remaining singles and couples in the group bring the wine. This way you only have to plan one dinner, yet get to attend four!
