ServeTime & Talents Sunday—

This Sunday, November 16

Following both morning services gather in the undercroft for coffee hour and explore the various ministries of Trinity Church.  Displays will be set up for many Trinity Ministry Teams, with team members on hand to answer any questions and to let you know how you can get involved.

This Sunday - A Ministry of Sound

HendandezPresenting at both morning liturgies this Sunday, November 16, Ana Hernández is a composer and arranger of sacred music, singer, and multi-instrumentalist. She leads workshops on the uses of sacred sound and rhythm in prayer. Her greatest joys lie in helping people to experience sound; the ways it touches our hearts, and its uses in manifesting peace, compassion, and laughter. She has recorded her arrangements with the National Cathedral Girls Choir and The Miserable Offenders. A previous recording, Eternal Spirit, with Sr. Helena Marie, CHS, has been popular with healing practitioners and spiritual directors. A few of her chants and hymns have just been published in the new hymnal Voices Found. She has published a book about chant as a spiritual discipline entitled The Sacred Art of Chant: Preparing to Practice (Skylight Paths, Fall 2004).

Explorers' Field Trip - Centering Prayer

Please join us on the evening of Thursday, November 20, at 7:00 p.m., in the chapel of Trinity Church, for an introduction to Centering Prayer led by Fr. Vinnie McKiernan of the OSU Newman Center.  All members of our community and guests are cordially invited to join us as we explore this ancient form of contemplative Christian prayer.  Please call Jean Cotting (561-1488) or the Rector for further details.

Rice for Liberia

LiberiaThis fall, students of Trinity’s Church School are raising money to send bags of rice to the Liberian families we have worked with through PIMIL (Partners in Ministry in Liberia). Due to the Ebola epidemic these children are not in school, so they are not getting the meals they are used to.  We were hoping to raise enough money to contribute one bag of rice—at the cost of $50.  Right now we are $20 away from our second bag!  Each bag of rice feeds a family of 4-6 for 2 weeks.  The actual bags of rice are not shipped to Liberia - we will be sending the money via PIMIL, and local Episcopal Church agencies in Liberia will buy the rice for the families.
Trinity parishioners will remember that Mother Abby Flemister, Trinity’s priest associate, is a prominent leader for the PIMIL organization in the Diocese of Southern Ohio.
The Church School has turned this into a six week project - they are learning about Liberia, praying for all people suffering from Ebola,  and working toward helping to feed children and families in this time of need.. They will be collecting money through December 7th. - please join them as you are able.

A great start to our Annual Giving Campaign which runs through Dec. 7—
We celebrate Trinity’s generosity….
As of November  10th, there have been 44 pledges made for 2015 totaling $133,830. In 2014, Trinity received 99 pledges totaling $233,540.  The current total is 57% of the amount pledged in 2014.
