Pastor Jay Jackson


Bible study small groups are groups of approximately three to six people that gather to participate in a bible study (whether it's a church-wide study or one that your group picks).  Groups meet in someone's home or at church at a time that's convenient for the members of that particular group.  It's a great way to make friends, get closer to folks here at Trinity, and get support when going through hard times. Groups meet on different days of the week, depending on the schedules of the members.  Some groups are meeting at church or in homes while others meet virtually.  Let's find one that works for you and your preferences.  To get connected to a Bible Study small group, contact Pastor Jay Jackson at
