We Are Walking During The Easter Season.
Don't be left out for a great time to walk and see all the beautiful signs of spring. Flowers are bursting with color. Talk to your friends and have them join a scheduled walk. It is not a late to walk for pledges. Any amount will help Trinity. Click the image for complete detals and to download any forms from the website or call Dale Deubler if you have any questions.

FUNdraising a big success:

Thanks to all who donated items and volunteered their time for the German Village Valuables Sale. Trinity raised nearly $1200 that morning to help support the operating fund of Trinity Church.
More thanks to the Trinity Layweeders, whose Plant Sale last weekend (and Monday noontime) raised an additional $400 for the church's operating fund. These events were a lot of fun and a lot of work. If you would like to take part in future Trinity FUNdraising, please speak to Jr. Warden Debbie Wiedwald and vestry liaison Joel Norris. Ask about the plans just beginning to germinate for Columbus Marathon weekend. Every hand will be needed if plans come to fruition. A very exciting time for Trinity Church.
If you missed the German Village Valuables Sale and want to help out—or just want to shop more—Trinity will be opening shop at the home of Dale Deubler and Al Sheppard on June 4th, during the Short North yard sale. 9am to 3pm at 112 Buttles Ave. 291-0055. We would like to have volunteers sign up for 2 hours shifts or for the day. Please speak to Joel Norris, Al or Dale to volunteer time.


Please don't forget our neighbors on the street. New dry socks are essential for this time of year. We have many weekday requests for snacks and canned self-opening food items as well. All donations are greatly appreciated.


We pray for all who are sick or suffering at this time, Walter East, Robert Malone, Nancy Zafris, Rachael Friend, Ron Whaley, Jasson Kabaira,  Sharon Whaley, Carrie, Stowers, Alice Jean Bush, Molly Morris,  Joanne Giroux, Bob & Jodie Park, and others whom we name silently or aloud.
We pray for Brianna Maher, Capt. Brian Smith, Jordan Sellman, Ted Abad, Private Dan Williamson, Cynthia Epler, Matt Schumann, Commander Scott Whaley, Specialist Michael A. Martin, Staff Sgt. Robert A Griffith Jr. and all who serve our country overseas and at home.
We remember all who work for peace around the world, especially  in Syria, Libya, Egypt, Bahrain, Yemen, Afghanistan and Pakistan. We give thanks for the Fellowship of Reconciliation as it nears 100 years of witness to peace making and ministries of justice and reconciliation globally.
