We recognize people are at different places in their faith journey.

Sunday Morning Studies 9:30-10:30 AM

Choose Joy – The Book of Philippians

Led by Bill Fischer’s Team
Room 201

This “Prison Epistle” of Paul carries all of the doctrine and theology of the rest of his writings.  But the underlying theme of the book is joy and how it can be a part of all Christians’ lives.  The joy of being in Christ is there for the taking.  Through this study we hope to learn how to “Choose Joy.”


Christian Rubric for Life
Led by Thomas DeVries
Room 206

On a routine basis we face questions that do not have simple answers. We can see the logic in competing arguments, but we cannot be sure we see God in our responses. This class appreciates that the answers are not simple, but that God has given us the knowledge through His Word, the tools provided by history’s greatest theologians and the aptitude that God bestowed in each one of us to develop our own personal Christian Rubric for life.

Encountering Jesus

Led by Jim Cleary’s Team
Room 205

In this study, we’ll examine the stories of how seven people—among them a scholar, a failure, a blind man and an adulteress—found their lives changed forever when they met Jesus Christ. Looking at their lives can give you hope when you find yourself dealing with failure or with an emptiness nothing in life seems to fill. Discussion-oriented.

Faith Discovery – New Member Class

Led by Pastor Michael P. Dorn
Room 123

“Faith Discovery,” is an 8-week class for those desiring to join Trinity Downtown.

The Faith Discovery class offers an opportunity to learn more about the Christian faith and how you can become part of the Trinity community as we each live out our faith every day.  Class participants will discover how God has uniquely gifted them, and how they, in turn, can use their gifts in service to Him and to our neighbors.

Sticky Faith

Led by Pastor Aaron and Becky Richert
Room 234

For centuries parents have been tasked with the vocation of passing on the faith to their children. A task many parents either find overwhelming or that they are “underequipped” to do. 

As a church family we recognize this and we invite you to join Becky and Pastor Aaron Richert in Sticky Faith Family Training. 

What is Sticky Faith? 

Simply put it is a 5-week training where you will be equipped with practical skills used by parents that will help shape lifelong faith in your children. 

You will be guided through a compelling blend of real-life stories and interviews with parents like yourself. This class will look into the hearts of parents discussing their own practical struggles, successes, and ideas that have shaped lasting faith in their own families, while delving into some of the latest national family research.

The Lutheran Mind – The Theology of the Cross

Led by Pastor Michael Hofmann
Room 233

Why do bad things happen? How does God work His will in the midst of our sufferings? Why is there pain? Why is there suffering? Why did God let Adam and Eve eat from the tree? How do we reconcile what God has revealed with what remains hidden? These are some hard questions with which most of us have struggled. Even people we know who are “unchurched” probably have struggled with these questions. They might have even approached us with them. And regardless of the amount of our theological training, we all wrestle with these complex, yet fundamental questions about God, Jesus, sin, man, life and death. Join us as we explore the depths of our Lutheran Minds.

Weekday Bible Studies

The Great Deceiver (Women’s Study)

Led by Matt Meier
10:00 AM – Room 205

Is Satan a real being, or is he just an outdated representation of evil? The Bible speaks of him as a rebel angel leading his minions against God, the holy angels, and all God’s children. But recent surveys suggest a majority of Christians in the United States don’t believe Satan really exists. In this four-week video-based study Rev. Mike Newman, currently serving as the President of the Texas District of the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod, explores what the Bible has to say about our ancient foe with the help of seminary professors Dr. Joel Biermann and Dr. John Pless, as well as pastors and individuals who have experienced the deadly guile of this great deceiver.
