St. John’s His Place Dinner
Wednesday, September 5

Trinity is serving community dinner at St. Johns Franklinton on Wednesday September 5th. Volunteers are needed to prepare a casserole in advance for that meal. From Sunday, August 5, recipes and pasta trays will be available in the church. If you need storage place, please bring your cooked casserole to church so it can be stored in the In the Garden freezers. Or you may wish to make your casserole the week before September 5 and we can cook it in the oven here.
Additional details will be provided nearer to the date of the event. Please contact Deborah Miller, Al Sheppard, or Jake Cunliffe with any questions or you are interested in in serving. Please remember that we need help not only cooking , but in serving the meal. Your assistance is deeply appreciated. 


In The Garden August Plans

ITG does not provide a hot meal from the first Sunday in August through Labor Day Sunday.  It will resume meals in the Undercroft on the Sunday after Labor Day.  However, we do distribute a sack lunch and water on the front steps of the Church during these "off" Sundays.  Lunches will be distributed from 12 - 12:30.  
ITG is looking for volunteers to either make sandwiches or distribute for the half hour after church.  There is a sign-up sheet with the ushers.  If you would like to make 20 sandwiches instead of 10, please sign up twice.  ITG will provide drinks, chips, a desert and napkin.  We are just in need of people to provide the sandwich for these sack lunches.
Please note that the ITG team will take care of Sunday, August 12th since this is Mass in the Grass and the Church will not be open.
ITG is in need of toilet paper and coffee for when it resumes hot meals in September.  Your donations can be placed in the baskets at church, brought to the Undercroft, or given to the church office.
Lori Dhiraprasiddhi will send out an email reminder to you if you sign up.  Please be sure that your handwriting is legible:) Coffee Hour Cups Trinity is encouraging the congregation to bring their own coffee cups to cut down on the amount of disposable cups we use. If you can bring a cup or mug with you in future weeks, we appreciate that! Disposable cups will continue to be available for those who need them



Fr. Paul Williams of St. Andrew’s, Pickerington and Fr. Bruce Smith of St. James, Columbus serve as the Supreme Coordinating Committee of Episcopal Night at the Symphony and are pleased to announce that our next evening together will be for a performance of G.F. Handel’s beloved oratorio, “Messiah” at the Ohio Theater on Friday evening, November 9th, 2018. Ticket prices will be $50 per person and will include food and beverages at a 6:00pm reception in the Galbreath Pavilion, hopefully a visit by Symphony conductor Rossen Milanov and Chorus Director Ronald Jenkins, a pre-concert talk in the theater by Christopher Purdy and orchestra seating for the concert. (Such a deal… almost as good a deal as CAPA’s Summer Movie Series!) If you already have tickets for the concert, not to worry! You can still join us for the reception for $20 per person. We will begin taking ticket reservations around Labor Day, so please watch this space for more information. See you there. Hallelujah!

From the Parish Office:


We are grateful for your continuing gifts of toiletries (soap, shampoo, toothpaste, toothbrushes and body lotion – no cosmetics please), self-opening snacks and men’s athletic socks. We have many visitors throughout the week who are need of these items as we are a cooling station in the summer; and we provide funds for state IDs for homeless people. Like In The Garden we are not equipped to handle clothing and recommend the United Methodist Free Store, 946 Parsons Ave. (614) 443-1713; and the Open Shelter, 61 E. Mound St., (614) 222-2885. Thank you so much!
