itg CURRENT NEEDS:  we are in good shape for toiletries right now except for toilet paper, so buy some extra for ITG if you think of it!  We also are in need of coffee so when you shop , if you  can, buy an extra pound of so for ITG! 
VOLUNTEERS!  And we need YOU!  Several people have had to leave the Core team of ITG lately, and we are desperately in need of committed people to keep this ministry alive and flourishing. If you want to know more about participating in ITG in the future, please contact Lori Dhiraprasiddhi or Father Burnett.

Winter is here!

There are more people living outside than ever before in Columbus and they are cold and hungry. Trinity once again is a warming station on weekdays for those who need shelter from the cold. Our visitors need men’s hats, men’s gloves and new athletic socks. They also need self-opening snack items. If you have men’s winter coats and jackets not in use, please bring them to church as well. Most of our visitors do not have warm clothing. Your continuing generosity is a blessing to many.
Thank you so much!

Praying for peace around the world, we continue to ask God for a deeper compassion and greater courage to offer help to refugees and migrants and all in need.
We renew our commitments to serve the neediest and most easily forgotten in our midst and remember all who are homeless and hungry in our city today.  We give thanks for the generous hospitality offered this afternoon at In The Garden, and pray for the Holy Spirit’s abundant grace in our fellowship.
We pray for all who are sick or suffering at this time – Madeleine Trechel, Anoja, Marjorie Holzer, Eleanor Johnson, Elizabeth Lilly, Shelley Miller, Tom & John, Sean Lalik, Jeff McNealey, Walter Friedmann, Sonia Cardenas, Kay Sturm, John Sanders,  Leah Lake, Pauline Austin, Jonie Johnson, Dick Oman, Sharon Whaley, David and Tyra and all in prison, and others whom we name silently or aloud.
