Email Alert - please read this!

Trinity's email system and some web services have been greatly affected by recent server changes at our web host AT&T. While there are NO SECURITY ISSUES to worry about, we're afraid that many emails are not reaching our inboxes ( If you have emailed anyone on the staff and not received a reply or action, please try to contact us by email again, or call the Parish Office at 614-221-5351.
Online problems include processing reply forms - thus the online Pledge/Annual Giving page has been temporarily disabled. If you have made an online pledge for 2015, please call Dave Fontana in the Parish Office to confirm your pledge was received.
PayPal donation has NOT been affected by these problems and still functions properly.
We are striving to get this resolves as quickly as possible.

IN THE GARDEN Enjoying A Busy Autumn

ITGTrinity Church's In the Garden community ministry continues to grow and flourish, with your help and support!  Oct. 26 we served over 165 people with a hearty hot meal provided by Faith Fellowship Church in Johnstown; each Sunday attendance has been over 125, with more and more women and children in the group. 
With winter coming on, the need for coffee is increasing! As you grocery shop in the weeks ahead, please remember to pick up an extra pound of coffee for ITG if you can.  You can leave it in the church office or in the Undercroft ITG serving area, and it will be well enjoyed and appreciated! 
We will also be preparing Christmas gift boxes for our diners  and earnestly solicit your contributions.  We would like to have a generous gift supply that includes personal toiletries (soap, shampoo, deodorant, toothpaste razors, etc.) as well as small food items in snap-open cans or bottles, candles, and clothing items such as socks, underwear, gloves, hats.  We will give you further details on this in the next Chimes, but please think of our In The Garden friends as you do your Christmas shopping!
