TRINITY 'S IN THE GARDEN TO PARTICIPATE IN

BETHLEHEM ON BROAD STREET

For over 20 years, many churches along Broad Street have provided a day of food, fellowship, gifts, and services to the needy in Columbus on Christmas day.  Led by First Congregational Church, and on that their location, dozens of churches have combined resources and volunteers to serve meals, gift boxes, worship and music activities, and more to over some 1000 persons, beginning at 6:00 am.
This year, In The Garden will participate in this amazing  event, by providing warm shelter, light refreshments, and a Christmas movie to those who wish to drop by from 3:00 - 5:00 pm. in our Undercroft.  We could certainly use some volunteers from Trinity to assist, so if you feel you can spare time late Christmas afternoon, please contact Deacon Deniray Mueller, Karen Peeler, or anyone on the ITG Team for more information. You can also visit the website www.bethlehemonbroadstreet.org to watch videos learn more about this unique day or love and service.
