Trinity Forum: Prayerful Playtime, Arts & Crafts for the Grown-ups
Trinity Episcopal Church in Concord invites you to its Sunday morning Adult Forum, Trinity's adult education program, which meets weekly at 9 AM to hear speakers connect us to these topics: word, worship, wonder, world, witness and work, important aspects of our Christian life.
On Sunday, September 16, former art teacher Becky Gettel returns our sense of wonder and appreciation of God the Creator. It is too easy for us adults in church to lose our sense of Wonder. One way to regain it is allow ourselves to play (in some cases, re-teach ourselves to play!). A God who invented laughter must find great joy in our play. Becky Gettel finds collage making to be a great way to play. Becky will bring collage materials, scissors, glue, and paper; you bring your sense of playfulness. This is not an art workshop, though you may-well end up with a piece of artwork at the end. It is a low-pressure play session with friends, materials, and the Holy Spirit. You may end up making a prayer card, an icon, or a collection of images that awaken your spirit to keep in a home prayer space. You may end up sticking a bunch of fun images together and offering it up as a rambunctious gift to God. The children get to do arts and crafts in church regularly and it serves to bring them into a playful and creative space with their Creator. It's our turn! Feel free to bring your own favorite art materials, magazines, or anything else to use and/or share, or just bring yourself and the rest will be provided.
Trinity's invited Forum speakers come from many walks of life and have addressed all manner of topics -- serious, mysterious, personal and world-focussed. Among our recent topics are pilgrimage, faith lost and found, histories and Biblical persons, death, dying and grieving, parenting, stewardship, education, and much more.
Childcare begins in Trinity's nursery at 9 AM; Trinity's buildings are fully accessible. For further information on this or other programs at Trinity, please call our Parish Office, 978/369-3715, or visit us online at http://www.trinityconcord.org.
More About Trinity Episcopal Church
Trinity Episcopal Church, led by Rev. Tony Buquor, was founded in 1884. Sunday services are at 8am in the chapel (no music) and 10am in the main church (full choir and hymns).
Church school for children ages 4 to 14 is conducted at 10am, and a nursery is available for infants and very young children. A coffee hour follows both services.
Once during the year, the church offers a class for people interested in learning more about the Anglican Church and the background and meaning of its worship. The class lasts four weeks and begins after the 10am service.
Trinity offers a wide variety of other activities, including a book group, bike club and outreach programs. A schedule of events is available on its website.
