Gather. Grow. Go.
As we step away from our normal routines during the summer months, our goal is for every member of Holy Trinity to gather, grow, and go!
This means making time to gather together in fellowship, challenging yourself to grow in your relationship with Jesus, and going out into the community to advance the gospel in a meaningful way.

Gather.

We feel that building strong relationships is important, which is why we want to encourage each of you to be involved in a smaller community where there is a focus on Scripture, prayer, sharing life, and serving together. 

Grow.

Our goal is to equip every member of Holy Trinity for kingdom living. This happens through Scripture-based discipleship that leads to spiritual maturity, transformed lives, and joyful service. Make time this summer to read the Bible more or alongside someone else. Invite friends to pray together and for each other. These are things that will change your heart and deepen your faith.

Go.

The desire is that as we mature in Christ we will increasingly turn our attention outward to the spiritual and material needs of our neighbors. This happens as we personally bear witness to the good news of Christ in our neighborhoods, at work, or with our family and friends. 

We have a wonderful lineup of events planned this summer to guide you on this journey. Also, we hope you feel inspired to find other ways to gather, grow and go! It can be as simple as hosting a small dinner party to deepen relationships, being diligent about reading your Bible every day, or planning a service project with your community group or neighbors. 

We look forward to hearing about all the ways you gather, grow, and go this summer! Be sure to tag us on Instagram along the way (@htcraleigh) and use the hashtag #GatherGrowGo.

Event Details

Bible Studies

Ladies at Lunch: Drop-in Bible Study for Women
Wednesdays, June 5 – August 7 | 11:30am – 12:30pm | Trinity House Conference Room

Join us this summer for Ladies at Lunch – a casual, drop-in Bible study for women on Wednesdays at 11:30am. Each week we will discuss a different topic, making it flexible for your summer schedule. Bring your lunch and we will eat together as we learn what the Bible says about matters such as contentment, self worth, stress, and more. We will meet in the Trinity House conference room. Come as you are and join the discussions as often as you can!

The Path of Life: How to Read and Understand the Psalms
Wednesdays, June 5 – July 31 | 6:30-8pm | Courtyard Classroom

Martin Luther once said, “You may truly call the Book of Psalms, a little Bible; for in it all things that are contained in the whole Bible are given to us in the most wonderfully brief and sweet manner, and condensed into a most beautiful manual.” Many of us, however, don’t read the Psalms this way. They seem to us more like a random collection of Biblical poetry rather than a book with a coherent message. Because of this we often find ourselves confused and uncertain as to how to apply them to our lives. For our summer series, we will be walking through 5 Books of the Psalms over the course of eight sessions. Our hope is to give you the resources to come to any of the 150 Psalms, recognize the genre it is written in, why it is placed where it is, how it contributes to the narrative of salvation, and how we can live in light of its truths!

Community Events

Summer Service Week
June 24-28 | 9am-1pm | Various Ministry Partner Locations

We’ll be serving Monday, June 24 through Friday, June 28 from about 9am-1pm each day. In the past, we’ve gone to places like With Love From Jesus, Refugee Hope Partners, Neighbor to Neighbor, Corral Riding Academy, and the Community Garden at the Food Bank. Stay tuned for more specific information about where we will be going this summer!

Kintsugi Art Workshop
Saturday, June 29 | 10-12:30pm

Join us for this experiential hands-on workshop creating kintsugi, the art form that Makoto Fujimura writes about in the book “Art + Faith,” which involves mending broken pottery and filling the cracks with gold paint. Through this process, kintsugi brings new beauty out of imperfection, highlighting places of brokenness rather than hiding them. This represents how God is at work in us in new creation, transforming the brokenness in our own lives into places of new beauty, power, and glory. This workshop on modern kintsugi will be led by three Academy Kintsugi and Call to Gather artists, Esther Mun, Tiffany Thompson, and Bianca Criscuolo. The program will include learning about the history and background of kintsugi, guided reflection, live music by Tiffany Thompson, and the creation of kintsugi.

Space is very limited, and registration is required. Registration fee is $85 per person. Art materials will be provided; but be sure to either bring a broken piece of pottery (bowl, cup, etc.) to work with, or to request one. Please do not break any pieces to bring. Instead, look for cracked, chipped, and broken ceramics you already have. No glass, please. If you absolutely cannot find a vessel to bring, some pieces may be available by the artists, so please request one. Please contact Daniel at daniel@centerforpublicchristianity.org if the registration fee hinders you from attending. Click HERE to register.

Faithful Citizens in a Fractured World – How to think about politics without losing your faith.
August 16-17 | Friday from 7-8:30pm and Saturday 9-2pm | Courtyard Classroom

In the midst of one of the most contentious election seasons of our lifetimes, in a culture riven by polarization, there is no shortage of voices telling Christians what to think about politics. But before we can begin to answer questions of whom or what to vote for, what stands to take or compromises to make, we must first learn how to think about politics. Why did God make us for political life? What does it mean to live in submission to imperfect and sinful governments? What is the purpose of law and how should Christians relate to the web of laws that structure our lives? Finally, how do we think about our dual citizenship—as citizens of heaven and as members of the particular nations to which God has called us? 

Join us for a two-day mini-course led by Dr. Brad Littlejohn on what it means to be good citizens and faithful Christians in a society where these are no longer the same thing. Click HERE to register

“Art + Faith: A Theology of Making” by Makoto Fujimura
Tuesday, June 11 | 7-8:30pm

Makoto Fujimura, author of “Art + Faith: A Theology of Making,” is a world-renowned Japanese American Christian artist, who has also written and spoken extensively on art, faith, “culture care,” and a “theology of making.” He has received awards and honors from the Trinity Forum, Biola, Calvin, Consolatio Mission, and Pope Francis; he has advised Martin Scorsese on the major motion picture Silence; and he was appointed by President George Bush to the National Council on the Arts. Join us as we read “Art + Faith” and discuss the connections between Christian faith, art, beauty, and creating. This book study goes hand-in-hand with the Kintsugi Art Workshop on June 29.

Join with others in reading “Art + Faith” and explore the connections between Christian faith, art, beauty, and creating.

Registration is free but required. Participants should purchase their own copy of “Art + Faith” at either Yale BooksRabbit Room, or Amazon, and complete reading the book before attending the discussion on June 11. Click HERE to register.

“Practicing the Way” by John Mark Comer
Thursday, July 11 | 7-8:30pm | Classroom Across From Youth Room

“Practicing the Way” by John Mark Comer is a book that explores the ancient Christian spiritual disciplines and how they can be integrated into contemporary life. Comer emphasizes the importance of these practices, such as solitude, silence, Sabbath, simplicity, and others, in fostering a deeper connection with God and a more fulfilling spiritual life. He argues that in our fast-paced, distracted world, these practices are essential for cultivating spiritual health, inner peace, and a greater sense of purpose. Comer offers practical guidance on how to incorporate these disciplines into daily life, drawing from his own experiences as a pastor and spiritual leader. Overall, the book encourages readers to slow down, prioritize their relationship with God, and embrace a lifestyle centered on spiritual growth and transformation. During our time together, we will be discussing questions like: Is the life I’m living the life I most deeply desire? Is this it? Is ‘always pray’ really possible? What does it look like?

“Are My Kids On Track?” by Sissy Goff, David Thomas and Melissa Trevathan
Sunday, July 14 | 4-5:30pm | Classroom Across From Youth Room

The 12 Emotional, Social and Spiritual Milestones Your Child Needs to Reach.”

This material is appropriate for parents with children of all ages, and includes practical suggestions for facilitating development in each area. Childcare for children in the 5th grade and younger will be available during this event.

“The Worry-Free Parent” by Sissy Goff
Sunday, August 18 | 4-5:30pm | Classroom Across From Youth Room

What parent isn’t anxious today? And how does our anxiety affect our children?
