Rhythms of Grace
We are excited to announce that we will be offering Rhythms of Grace here at Trinity beginning September 22!

Rhythms of Grace is a service for special needs children and their families. The program began so that parents could have a place to worship with their children, without worrying about verbal disruptions, distracting movements, or gestures. It is a creative church experience designed for families with children who have special needs, but everyone is welcome and encouraged to attend.

Rhythms of Grace will be held on the 4th Sunday of each month at 3:00 pm in Keenan Chapel. Please click here to read our brochure about the service, or click here to head to the Rhythms of Grace page on our website to learn more. If you have any questions, you may also contact Bibs Babson at .

Trinity Family Recovery Meetings
The Trinity Recovery and Support Ministry is hosting Monday evening meetings for adults and families with Substance Use Disorders. An individual’s substance use disorder affects their family and friends. Families need education, care, and encouragement during this sometimes-prolonged recovery process. This weekly group meeting provides both the information and guidance that family members and friends need to deal with the immediate crises of substance abuse, as well as the on-going support they need to make the necessary and often painful choices that SUD recovery requires. 

Meetings are held each Monday in Room 114 from 6:00 - 7:00 pm. Drop in anytime. No reservation is needed. For more information, please contact Kay Roman (803.738.7043) at , or Richard Breibart (803.261.6577) at .
This fall, join Ellen Yaghjian one hour a week for yoga and mindfulness practices.  This yoga series will concentrate on grounding and balance. Through basic postures and breathing practices we will move toward increasing our sense of well-being and ease, while increasing flexibility and strength. Classes will meet weekly at 10:00 am on Tuesday mornings in Room 222. This series begins on Tuesday, September 3 and will run through October, with the last class meeting Tuesday, October 29.

The cost is $10 to drop in for one class, or $90 for the series. For more information, please contact Ellen at .
