prize-winning organist Kirk M. Rich

Sunday, April 19, at 3:00 p.m.

Mr. Rich is quickly becoming known as a solo and collaborative artist of integrity, praised for his technical command of the organ and breadth of musical imagination. He was featured in recital as a "Rising Star" at the 2008 American Guild of Organists National Convention in Minneapolis/St. Paul, Minnesota, and in 2014, he won third prize in the AGO’s National Young Artists’ Competition in Organ Performance. Most recently, he is the winner of the 2015 William C. Hall Pipe Organ Competition. His program for St. John’s will include works of Bach, Brahms, Dupré, Stanley, and Vierne. Mr. Rich holds degrees from the Oberlin College Conservatory of Music and Indiana University’s Jacobs School of Music; he is currently pursuing a DMA at the University of Houston. There is no charge for admission to the concert; a freewill offering will be taken to support the Music Series. St. John’s is located at 700 High Street in Worthington, on the southeast corner of the Olde Worthington Village Green (High Street at SR 161). Visit for more information.

ITGCoffee and Supplies: Thank you, thank you, thank you!  Because of your generosity we have plenty of coffee and juice boxes for the weeks ahead.  We don't have storage for any more right now!  We could use contributions of toiletries for our ITG friends, however, such as razors, toothpaste, toothbrushes, toilet paper, deodorant, disposable diapers, and handi-wipes.  We also can use paper plates, napkins, Styrofoam coffee cups, and plastic forks and spoons.  We buy these in bulk, but we also go through a LOT of them in a month!
Funding: Once again we received our grant from the Episcop0al Church Services Fund (ECSF), which Trinity will match.  If you want to make a monetary contribution  to ITG, indicate that on your check and give it to the church office, so that the matching fund can be credited, and you can as well!!
Come join us anytime at ITG...volunteers are always needed and welcome!
If you and your family would like to provide a meal, we have a few open dates left in the year, and would love to share the blessings of ITG with all!

PLAY: Finding God in Celebration
a fresh expressions conference

April 17th-18th, 2015
@ St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church, Columbus, OH

Play opens us up to joy, new possibilities, and creativity. What might happen if the church took up PLAY as a spiritual practice? What if we played together and imagined a new church into being?


PLAY is a gathering of people interested in in celebrating creative ways to engage God’s mission in our communities. PLAY will offer ideas for fostering imagination and creativity, planning non-traditional worship, missional church planting, and how to gather community in new ways through radical hospitality, storytelling and inspiring music. The Rev. Ben Norton, a pioneer minister in the Church of England, will share his experiences creating three different fresh expressions of church in the last 10 years in the UK. Ben invites us on a journey to meet people and connect the Christian story to the story of people outside of the church and to gently grow spiritual communities in the process. Ana Hernandez, musician, conversation host and mischief maker, will lead us in music that makes community. PLAY explores how we give each other permission to imagine a new way forward together and an opportunity to reinvigorate your soul and your church.

If you are interested in learning more about fresh expressions, being part of some inspiring worship, or just want to have fun, you won’t want to miss this gathering. PLAY is for everyone, young and old, musicians and artists, lay and ordained, people who love the church and those who don’t. We invite you and members of your community to join us for this experience! Don't miss this opportunity to PLAY!

A film directed by Jamaal Bell

Thursday, April 16, 2015, 7–8 p.m.

Martin de Porres Center
2330 Airport Drive
Columbus, Ohio 43219

On April 16, 1963, Martin Luther King, Jr. drafted his now famous letter from a cell in the Birmingham Jail.  Written in response to several white clergy members who, while opposing segregation, accused King of being an outside agitator and inciting violence, the letter became a key text for the American civil rights movement.  In it, King defends the strategy of nonviolent resistance and asserts that people have a moral responsibility to break unjust laws.

The film stars 41 community leaders from Columbus, including  educators and leaders from The Ohio State University, reading King’s letter.

A free-will offering will be taken.  Please register by April 13.


We remember all who work for peace around the world, and especially this day we pray for our nation and other international partners discerning war and peace and wisdom in this time of terror and violence. Remembering friends and family members related to this community, we pray for Petty Officer Kristy Sizemore, Cynthia Epler, Matt Schumann, Commander Scott Whaley, Gunnery Sergeant Robert A Griffith Jr., and all who serve our country.
Today we pray for peace throughout the world, especially in Yemen, Nigeria and Iraq.
We renew our commitments to serve the poorest 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 –Joanne Lynch, Dave Mozano, Don McKissick, Dan Armett, Pauline Austin, Leelah Acorn, Marie & Keith Duty, Elizabeth Lilly, Jan Heston, Frances Bennekamper, Gayle Nash, Jayla Kennedy, Josh McKinney, Sharon Whaley, Hal Duryee,  Bob Park and others whom we name silently or aloud.
Birthdays:   Peter Casey, Nina Slangerup, BJ Artrup, Nancy Gurgiolo, Edison Reese, Lucy Baith.
