Ingathering Sunday - November 13

Trinity will hold a further house meeting of the  BREAD Organization in the Parish Library Sunday, November 13 at 9:15 a.m.  The goal is to identify a social justice issue to address this year and we need your thoughts.  What local problem bothers you the most?  Earlier this fall, 107 BREAD team members from 29 congregations voted at the Justice Ministry Team Assembly to nominate Jobs, Violence, and Youth. We will vote at the Annual Assembly to add one of them to our current slate of campaigns—Monday, November 14th at 7 p.m.: Annual Assembly at Rhema Christian Center, 2100 Agler Road, Columbus 43224.  Please join us this Sunday for this important discussion. We look forward to seeing you there!
