Adult Formation:
Sanctuary: The Covenant Peoples

In the book of Exodus, God’s people are given sanctuary and then called to “make me a sanctuary, so that I may dwell among them.” (Exodus 25:8) It’s a story of how a people become God’s people, the covenant people.  Join our 5-week study during adult formation as we delve into the theme of sanctuary and God dwelling among us as we continue to live out the covenant that God promise with us. Parishioner Jenny Grunauer lids this gathering.
Adult Formation is held on Sundays at 9:15am in the Parish Library.

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 a warming station in the winter 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!



The only supplies we need right now are: coffee, juice boxes, shampoo, soap, toilet paper.
In order to help clean and store things properly, we do not need other toiletries or clothes at this point, and thank you for your generosity in the past.  Going forward, please take any extra clothes you may wish to donate to the Free Store on Parsons Ave.  We are not able to store and dispense clothing at ITG in the future!  
We are seeking additional Trinity folks who want to volunteer to guide and sustain this important ministry!  Please prayerfully consider if you have a call to work with ITG, and contact Father Burnett or Jake Cunliffe if you have further questions.
