IN THE GARDEN continues to flourish in the Trinity Undercroft each Sunday! We served 120 new and returning diners on Jan. 22 with lunch provided by The Church of the Solid Faith, and 92 on Jan.29 with lunch provided by St. Phillip Episcopal. Our worship program last Sunday included a group discussion of the three deaths from exposure that occurred recently on the street, and advice on where to go for shelter. The group voiced a need to assist each other in finding solutions for shelter and food during the bitter days of winter, and the IN THE GARDEN team promised to help as much as we could.
We continue to need help in providing food and services to our ITG friends, and we need YOU! The ITG Team invites you to consider providing a meal as a family service (or perhaps combining with other families or groups) in the weeks ahead. The ITG Core Team can provide you with menus and other tips for providing a meal if you wish. Perhaps you would like to come one Sunday and help serve to get a better idea of the IN THE GARDEN experience and how you might be a part?
A sign-up sheet for preparing a meal or volunteering to help will be available in the Trinity Narthex beginning Sunday, Feb. 5; Karen Peeler will contact you to select a date and answer questions, or you can contact her at 848-3249 or Please consider joining your Trinity family one Sunday as we truly meet Jesus IN THE GARDEN!
