August marked the one year anniversary of Trinity Fusion! Fusion came about as a result of a conference Urban Transition Grant and was undergirded this first year by a grant from the Center for Congregations in Indianapolis. Fusion involved a long process of research, conversations, prayer and discernment. It is focused on narrative and the power of connecting the sacred story with our own personal stories.
Fusion meets in the Great Room and seeks to cultivate a space where participants can connect, discover and grow. It features a Bible story, a guest story teller, “table talk” discussion, and concludes with a free meal. Our redesign of the youth room transformed it into an inviting space where Melissa and Jan provide an opportunity to connect, discover, and grow that is specially geared for the children (see green box about Fusion Kids).
Fusion is Trinity’s primary community outreach. It is designed to reach individuals who have a desire to connect with God and experience authentic community, but are not drawn to a traditional – or even contemporary – church worship experience. Fusion is a unique experience of Christian community and welcomes people who may be skeptics or hold unique spiritual perspectives.
September’s story teller will be our own Morris DuBose who will focus on the power of narrative in our lives. The vast majority of our bible is narrative and the story of God’s work in our lives and our world is ongoing. Fusion’s narrative format provides a relational experience that fulfills Trinity’s Vision of “growing in love and service through relationships with God and community.”
Have you invited someone outside our congregation to attend Fusion? If not, September Fusion is an ideal opportunity.
The Living Stones leadership team met on August 14. It was a wonderful way to end my year-long Center for Congregations Resource Grant for several reasons, which encapsulate the successes of our work this year.
Built to Last: Celebrating 150 years at Trinity: 2019 marks the 150th anniversary of Trinity’s historic church building. After our successful February anniversary event, two anniversary events remain this fall. Each event has a different character and has been geared to a different audience.
