Our Tuesday morning discussion group begins with a gentle Tai Chi Session. It's easy and so very relaxing. After Tai Chi, we spend about 45 minutes discussing really interesting topics, books and videos. Everyone in the group is free to contribute or suggest topics to be discussed. That is what makes it intersting and fun! Our topics have ranged from lost scriptures of the Bible to angels to near dealth experiences. Currently we are discussing a book by Deepak Chopra. Come and join us in the Chapel at 10:30 am for a great Tuesday morning outing! Come once, occasionally, or every week. You are always welcome!

Our ancestors in faith led the movement for abolition. They were a voice of reason at the dawn of Reconstruction, when America attempted to rebuild a nation buttressed by white power and privilege. They fought long and hard during the time of Jim Crow to gain new ground in the equality of all races. They fought to end red-lining districts that forced black families into ghettoes. And they walked arm in arm with our brothers and sisters of color during the Civil Rights movement. Let's not forget this rich history and let's continue to stand up and speak out for what is right. Please read the letter from our UCC Conference Ministers.
We have a calendar that shows "who is meeting where' each month. With four different ministries, it can get a bit confusing. Just go to the Calendar tab on the left hand side of the page and the drop down will say "Room Usage Calendar."
Thanks to the Lao Ministry members who have come to the church each week and cleaned! Not only the sanctuary, but the grounds as well! We appreciate you so much!!

Trinity is very fortunate to have an artist in residence! Add to that the fact the artist gives free art sessions to children every Wednesday night at 6:00 pm and you really have a winner! Thanks to Morgan Wright's Children's Art Ministry, many of our neighborhood children have been exposed to the wonderful world of art. Recently Morgan offered six free sessions to adults after church service on Sunday. Below is a portfolio of some of the art works going on in Morgan's Art Corner!
Come join the fun! Every Wednesday night at 6:00 pm, Morgan holds a free art class on the Trinity UCC campus for the community kids. Everyone has a great time, including the adults who supervise. Bring your kids for a fun filled evening where Morgan teaches them in a festive and interesting way how to appreciate the beautiful and engaging world of art! For more information, contact the church office at 727-321-1088. We are always looking for adult volunteers so please contact the office of you can help!
This beautiful scene was painted by Colleen Hafner, another up and coming artist from Morgan's class!
Jacquie's leaves are finished! They are exquisite! Jacquie says she has done a lot of painting before, but only house painting! We are very impressed with this beautiful work of art and cannot believe this is the work of an amateur. You should give Morgan's class a try--you too can find the budding artist within you! Every Sunday after church services, Morgan has a free art class for all who are interested. You will be surprised what you can do and the beauty you can create!
Morgan is offering a free art class right after worship service for anyone who would like to try their hand at painting. This is a great opportunity to awaken the sleeping artist within you! Come join the fun!
Colleen Hafner drew and painted these beautiful flowers!
The three adults who started the class March 20th after church have finished their first pictures! Sharon Dunaway-Alt, Susan Gilbert and Don Ketterer are very proud of their first art works! And Morgan made it fun and easy! Want a creative hour away to de-stress? Take advantage of Morgan's art classes!
Jackie Shewmaker joined the art class and her first project was trees. Those trees are looking pretty excellent, Jackie! You might be giving the wannabes above some stiff competition! Morgan makes art class interesting and easy. You've actually painted a tree of two before you even know what's happening. Who knew art could be for everyone? Won't you give it a try?
Week Two Pastor Jeanette got in on the fun! Here is a photo of her "practice" page. As you can tell, we have the makings of a great artist here! Can't wait to see what's next!
Actually the "trees in the winter" picture is next, but what will they look like? So far, we have all had individual creative differences in our trees. This is so much fun!
Don is a little ahead of the rest of us. He's already created a flower! The flower is created by negative space painting. In other words he painted the bluish-green color around a pencil sketch on the white paper. Pretty cool, eh?
You should think about joining us. There are still four weeks left! It's a very stress free, fun, creative hour.
Thank you, Morgan, for the great opportunity!
