Adult Christian Education
At Trinity Avenue Presbyterian Church, loving God with all your mind is nurtured through ongoing Christian formation opportunities. We invite all to continue the journey of faith through a variety of classes, programs, and activities. Classes and programs ranging from traditional Bible and theological studies to contemporary issues and discipleship in the world today.
Activities, meals and programs that allow us to discover and nurture the ties that bind us.
Worship at Trinity Avenue is enhanced by a strong music ministry which includes the singing of hymns, choral music from our three choirs and periodic special music offerings by guest instrumentalists, choirs and singers. Through this music ministry, worshipers have the opportunity to hear God’s message in new and stimulating ways.
Trinity Choir rehearses Wednesdays, 7:15-9:00 p.m. The choir provides musical leadership for the 11:00 a.m. Sunday worship service each week. In addition, the Choir sings special musical programs with the Trinity Chamber Orchestra at Christmas, Easter and festival Sundays.
Prayer sustains and enriches the congregation, and the ministry of prayer takes many forms: traditional phone/email prayer chain; prayer requests listed in the weekly bulletin; sharing of joys and concerns at committee, diaconate and session meetings; praying for concerns left in prayer boxes in the narthex; prayer shawls knitted to share with congregation members, family and friends; and weekly prayer requests to the session and diaconate.
Contemplative prayer- resting in God- is a core practice in the Christian tradition. All are welcome on Fridays in the Chapel from noon- 12:30 for Centering Prayer.
Weekday School (Preschool)
A preschool program for children aged 1 through 5. Looking for an emotionally supportive, intellectually stimulating environment for your child? Consider Trinity Avenue Presbyterian Weekday School! Since the mid-1950s, we have sponsored the Weekday School for young children who are taking that important first step into the outside world. The school encourages close parent-teacher relationships and parental involvement in all aspects of the preschool experience so that children understand their parents’ interest in and support of life at school.
Presbyterian Women (PW) meet regularly through three study groups which are called circles. Each circle maintains contact with our homebound and welcomes new babies by providing a children’s Bible for infant baptisms. PW values and supports the mission of the church and has led in such initiatives as Backpack Buddies (a program that collects educational supplies for Durham Public Schools) and women’s shelters.
