We have formed several subcommittees to help plan our bicentennial celebration: historical, marketing/outreach, musical, social and visual.
If you are interested in joining one of the subcommittees, please share your name, email address and phone number to Trinity200@trinitycolumbus.org. A planning committee member will be in touch to let you know about upcoming meetings.

We remember all who work for peace around the world, and especially this day we pray for our nation and other international partners discerning war and peace and wisdom in this time of terror and violence. Remembering friends and family members related to this community, we pray for Capt. Kristian Tonnessen, Specialist Hannah Stout, Petty Officer Kristy Sizemore, Cynthia Epler, Matt Schumann, Captain Scott Whaley, Gunnery Sergeant Robert A Griffith Jr., and all who serve our country.
Praying for peace around the world, we continue to ask God for a deeper compassion and greater courage to offer help to refugees and migrants and all in need.
We renew our commitments to serve the neediest and most easily forgotten in our midst and remember all who are homeless and hungry in our city today.  We give thanks for the generous hospitality offered this afternoon at In The Garden, and pray for the Holy Spirit’s abundant grace in our fellowship.
We pray for all who are sick or suffering at this time –Walter Friedmann, Patty Tessler, Sonia Cardenas, Seth Harris, Kay Sturm, Frances & John Sanders, Suzanne Leslie, Leah Lake, Lucia Benaquisto , Pauline Austin, Jonie Johnson, Dick Oman, Dave Mozano,  Jan Heston, Sharon Whaley, Hal Duryee, David and those in prison and others whom we name silently or aloud.
