Small Groups are a way we grow in our faith and as disciples of Jesus at Trinity Church.
Our goal is to walk with God in faithful discipleship, deepen our relationships in our groups and serve in our community.

“As We Forgive” – Documentary – 2009 - 53 minutes
Could you forgive a person who murdered your family? This is the question faced by the subjects of As We Forgive, a documentary about two Rwandan women coming face-to-face with the men who slaughtered their families during the 1994 genocide. The subjects of As We Forgive speak for a nation still wracked by the grief of a genocide that killed one in eight Rwandans in 1994. Overwhelmed by an enormous backlog of court cases, the government has returned over 50,000 genocide perpetrators back to the very communities they helped to destroy. Without the hope of full justice, Rwanda has turned to a new solution: Reconciliation. (some images of war and death).
