On Tuesday, April 8, Trinity hosted the Faith and Education breakfast discussion called "The 4 Rs: Reading, 'Riting, 'Rithmetic and Religion." Pastor Mike Dent welcomed guests and gave a blessing. Those attending heard from faith leaders about how churches can further engage and support Colorado's education system.
Guest speakers included Jill Hawley, Associate Commissioner of Achievement and Strategy, Colorado Department of Education; Andy Mendelsberg, Principal, Denver East High School; and Chris Watney, President and CEO, Colorado Children's Campaign. The event was sponsored by the Colorado Council of Churches and the Colorado Children's Campaign.
The excellent presentations stimulated the interest of Trinity members present and there is an on-going conversation about how Trinity might provide a program for those interested in learning more about how our congregation might further engage and support Colorado's education system.
