SOUTHINGTON - Town Councilor and Pastor Victoria Triano will be starting up a new Bible study group, “Bible Boot Camp 101” on June 22 at Southington Care Center.
The free, eight-week class will be held at 7 p.m., weekly, at Southington Care Center at 45 Meriden Ave. The group is non-denominational and open to anyone who wishes to learn more about the Christian faith. Classes will be approximately an hour and 15 minutes long, and guests are encouraged to bring any Bible that they feel comfortable with. For those who do not have one, a copy of the holy book will be provided.
Triano, director of Pastoral Care at the center, has also been the lead pastor at Christ Community Church at 50 Orchard Road in East Haddam for the past 14 years. She is frequently called upon to give the invocation and benediction at community events, such as the annual Military Luncheon at the Municipal Center. She said that she wanted to have a group open to all Christians, not just affiliated with one church.
“There are many people who are not affiliated with a church who would still like to know more about the scripture and their faith,” she said. “People can attend as many classes as they wish, and they will examine seven aspects of the faith that are common to all denominations.”
The class will teach participants about the Personhood of God and the Holy Trinity. It will also answer questions about “what is salvation?”, “what is sin?” and “what happens when I die?” according to scripture.
“Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions and then look to the scripture for answers,” said Triano. “I am very excited to begin these classes.”
Triano said that Southington is “blessed” to have a strong group of churches and a “wonderful community that is very strong in its faith.” She said that she hopes this class will allow participants to explore their faith further.
