Throughout our Holy Scriptures, we see that our Lord came to bring justice, to show us mercy, and to invite us into right relationship with God and each other. This fall, Trinity will be exploring what it means for us to do justice, love kindness, and walk humbly with our God through various classes, speakers, sermons, and activities. Please join us for this important journey.

For more information, see details below or view the Micah 6:8 Brochure.

The Music of Our Lives: Freedom Songs

If music is a force for good…we humans are carriers, bringing the past in song and sound to the present. In anticipation of our visit with Bryan Stevenson, we’ll travel back in time, listening and learning from American spirituals born to us in an era of slavery, gospel coming to fruition in the early 20th century, a choir of voices emerging during a time of Jim Crow and the Civil Rights Movement, onward into this 21st century with Freedom Songs of remembrance, lament, redemption, and hope passed down through the generations… storytelling, scripture, and spoken word put to music.

September 11

Song as prayer and illumination…where in Creation does it all begin, the music? Together we’ll explore the art of listening, and hearing, that we might feel the emotional, communal, and spiritual connection born of the music of our lives.

September 18

The original American Freedom Songs were spirituals — songs of remembrance, lament, yearning, and hope rising from the enslaved whose eyes were watching God.

September 25

The genre of American gospel music was created by songwriters and singers in the first half of the 20th century. We will consider the personal stories of these “founders” and listen to evolving renditions of their classic works.

October 9

Call it “crossover” or “fusion” or “appropriation,” the 1940s and ‘50s saw gospel and blues promoted by the recording industry to the mass-market. Many of the popular recording artists of the period were raised in the church and brought that background to secular music.

October 16

Friend of TPC, Caroline Herring, will perform and talk about how songwriters and performers continue to inform us through songs of freedom and hope.

October 23

We witnessed an explosion of music through the 60s and 70s. Soul, rock, reggae — issues and music were expanding beyond cultural limits.

3 Shifts:

  • 8:00 AM – Noon
  • Noon – 4:00 PM

Please plan to volunteer as we host a family fun day at Metro ReEntry Facility for returning citizens. Part of the Georgia Department of Corrections, this facility is dedicated to removing barriers to successful integration back into the community. Services at this facility include counseling, substance abuse treatment, spiritual health, job training and education. Additionally, statistics have shown that connectivity to family, especially children is a great predictor of a successful reentry. Trinity will partner with Peachtree Road United Methodist Church (PRUMC) to host a Family Fun Day including games, food and dancing for returning citizens and their families inside the facility.

Volunteers commit to their entire shift: morning, afternoon, or all day. There is no coming and going. Volunteers must be 18 years or older. Groups will meet at Trinity prior to shifts to carpool.
