Wednesday at the Commons Classes

Wednesday evenings, September until June. Put a little soul refreshment in the middle of your week! Wednesday at the Commons is Trinity's midweek learning community, offering classes that open us to new ways of thinking, push us to go deeper in our relationships and commitments, and offer us new insights into each other and God. Service of the Holy Eucharist is at 5:30 p.m. in the Chapel, dinner is at 6:00 p.m. (suggested donation of $10), followed by a wide range of class options from 7:00–8:30 p.m. There is no charge for Wednesday classes. Childcare is available from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.


For the dinner, you must sign up in advance (by noon on Tuesday of that week), so that we may know how many to have food for. In person, dinner sign-up sheets are located at Trinity's Information Wall outside Kempton Hall. You can also email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or call 503-478-1223 to sign-up for dinner.
For classes, we encourage sign ups so that we may know numbers to expect, but you are most welcome even if you were unable to sign up. 

How do I sign up for classes?

Summer Book Groups

colson whitehead2 620x412 for websiteSummer Book Group-The Underground Railroad

Wednesdays, June 28-August 30, 7:00p.m., Bishop Scott Room. Facilitated by Elliott Trommald.
Underground Railroad is a book for our times-and the winner of the Pulitzer Prize for fiction. Slavery and race have profoundly shaped the story of America and continue to challenge our understanding of who we are. Closon Whitehead’s magical work is a powerful meditation on the history we share, seamlessly weaving that American story from the brutal importation of Africans to the unfulfilled promises of today. Our summer read of Underground Railroad is an opportunity for us to explore, discuss, and feel how our past is always present and that we neglect it at our peril. Click HERE to register.
