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!



Please don't forget our neighbors on the street. New dry socks are essential for this time of year. We have many weekday requests for snacks and canned self-opening food items as well. Remember to save hotel toiletries from your travels this summer. All donations are greatly appreciated.

We remember all who work for peace around the world, especially in Nigeria, Iraq, Egypt, Syria, Iran and Israel, Afghanistan, Pakistan and South Sudan.
And we still our hearts and turn our prayers today to the poorest and the most easily forgotten in our midst . . . praying especially for all who will visit Trinity this afternoon and worship at In The Garden, and the many in need of food and lodging.  We ask for vision to see the needs of our neighbors, hear the cries of the poor, and respond with courage and with love.
