BellowsAn Afternoon at the Columbus Museum of Art

Sunday, October 13, 2013 — Free admission Sundays
Exhibit: George Bellows and the American Experience
Film: The World of Resplendent Wood Synagogues

Join fellow parishioners at the Columbus Museum of Art after the 10:30 service for a light lunch at the mini Palette Café and to view the George Bellows exhibit. Afterward, at 4:00 pm, for those who have the time and interest, the museum will present a documentary film about the rebuilding of 1731 Polish synagogue, which was destroyed in World War II.
George Bellows and the American Experience
The Columbus Museum of Art celebrates the return of one of America’s best artists and Columbus’ most beloved native sons with George Bellows and the American Experience. George Wesley Bellows is best known for his controversial boxing images and evocative urban scenes. He took the American art world by storm in the early 1900s, winning every major award and rising from art student to acclaimed luminary. Bellows captured the essence of his subjects and delivered it to his viewers with perception, compassion, and occasionally, outrage. 
The World of Resplendent Wood Synagogues
In collaboration with The Ohio State University’s Melton Center for Jewish Studies, Rick and Laura Brown of Handshous studio present a film documenting the Gwozdziec project to rebuild components of an exquisite 17th century Polish wooden synagogue. The Gwozdziec Synagogue was a remarkable wooden synagogue built in the Polish Lithuanian Empire in 1731 that was destroyed during World War II and is being rebuilt using photographic and historical records.

Welcome Bags For All Visitors

Do you know that small, colorful  welcome bags, containing information about Trinity are available in the entrance of the church each Sunday for visitors?  We hope that some of these visitors will return and regularly join us. You can take an important role in welcoming visitors to Trinity by greeting people who you don't know. Even if they are long-standing members who you don't know,  you will lose nothing by sharing a friendly exchange! For those who are new, offer them a welcome bag, explaining that it contains information about our Church. The Sunday School prepares the  gift bags and stores them in the cupboard inside the Broad Street entrance so they are readily available for ushers to place at the entrance to the Church.
Since its inception about 3 months ago, we have welcomed about 90 people with our greetings and gift bags.  Please help this program be successful!
