SUNDAY, OCTOBER 28, 9:115 a.m.

After more than 5 years, IN THE GARDEN, the weekly worship and dinner has grown into a popular and respected part of the programs for the downtown Columbus homeless and minimally-housed individuals. We now serve an average of 120 persons each Sunday afternoon with a delicious, hot home-cooked meal, programs, and worship. Many in the community (led by Sister and Dave with a host of volunteers from the ITG community) have begun to take responsibility for the set-up and clean-up each Sunday, as well as parts of the worship (led by Deacon Deniray Mueller) and organization. We have been blessed by participation from All Saints, St. John's of Worthington, and St. Philip Episcopal churches, as well the Church of the Solid Faith.
Several civic groups take turns providing meals as well; among them are the Chick 4 Christ, the Linda Jones Piano Studio, and the Grove City High School Key Club, The OSU Islamic Student Association brings sack lunches each Sunday for ITG folks to take home for supper, and often stay to help serve as well. Retired lawyer Jane Perry (formerly with the Ohio Public Defenders office) comes monthly to advise our ITG folks on legal matters, especially dealing with state organizations.
IN THE GARDEN has indeed become a thriving community where not only food and worship are shared, but prayers, concerns, successes, and friendships, and certainly ITG has become a reciprocal ministry to those of us who are closely involved. Because ITG is such a large part of the outreach ministry of Trinity Church, and because some have expressed an interest in volunteering, we will hold an "Orientation to Leadership for In The Garden" on Sunday morning, Oct, 28 at 9:15 am in the Undercroft. During this hour we will explain how ITG works, what volunteering involves, and answer questions.
Please plan to join us to learn more about this large and multi-faceted ministry of Trinity Church and how YOU can be a part of it!

BREAD House Meeting
Monday, October 22, 6:15 p.m., Trinity Church Parish Library

BREAD (Building Respect, Equality and Dignity) enters its 16th year of faith-based community organizing in Columbus this fall.  Over the years, critical social issues like pay-day lending, public school reform, neighborhood safety and restoration, and increased opportunities for small-business development have been urged by the 50-plus interfaith congregations who hold public officials accountable each year. Trinity stands with this group in offering participation and expert leadership from several lay people.
Now, we invite you to think with other Trinity people about the critical social issue that BREAD can address in 2013.  Come to the Parish Library on Monday, October 22 and share your passion for justice!  (See Jim Zafris, Peggy Malone, or the Rector for details.)

A Year to Collect Valuables

It’s never too early to make donations for next spring’s German Village Valuables sale.  Items can be dropped off at the Church or contact Kent Phillips or Bill Bronson for pickup details.
