Common Ministry Team to gather for dinner
Wednesday, June 8 at 6:15 p.m.

Over the past 18 months, Trinity has joined with five other congregations in the Diocese of Southern Ohio in the pilot expression of “Common Ministry.”  Our Common Ministry Team, convened by Emily Pucker and Debbie Wiedwald, has brought fresh eyes to our parish committees and ministry teams, asked penetrating questions about new opportunities for ministry in our common parish life and in our wider community, and explored diverse styles of congregational life and ministry with other leaders in the Diocese.
This group will make a report to the vestry at its June meeting, and now seeks your insights on a wide range of ministry opportunities.  Please join the Common Ministry Team at this dinner/conversation.  Your input, imagination, and commitments are all essential for our common ministry.


Operating from June - August, SummerQuest is Amethyst’s 12-week intensive intervention day camp for children ages 6-14 whose mothers are involved in our long-term addiction recovery program. SummerQuest provides a unique opportunity in the Columbus community for women and children who are working to recover their lives from addiction, mental illness, violence and poverty. The children served by SummerQuest have needs that exceed the programmatic abilities at more traditional summer programs. Nationally-acclaimed and supported by the Columbus community, SummerQuest aims to break the cycle of addiction, violence and poverty and provides the tools and framework for families to thrive. Click the image for more details.
 Camp Highlights:
  • Providing about 13,000 hours of service to kids each summer
  • Serving 35-40 kids per day, and about 50 over the entire summer
  • Award-winning: Exemplary Prevention Program Award from NASADAD and CSAP
  • Introducing an evidence-based cirriculum, Celebrating Families.
  • Enhancing the summer leadership program for teens: with the acquisition of a new van, teens can move off campus more often to participate in more volunteer opportunities and to be more involved with job readiness training.
