Immediately following the 10:30 Services in July, there will be offered an In The Garden in 10 minutes quick overview of what participating in this service ministry involves.  We will meet back at coffee hour and take a quick trip downstairs.  We promise it will not take any longer than 10 minutes.  Hope you will come check ITG out.

As you shop this summer, will you please keep the needs of In The Garden in mind.  We are in need of coffee and juice boxes​ for Sunday afternoon meals as well as toilet paper, standard size bottles of shampoo and soap for distribution to those in need.  Many thanks.



Sunday's Bulletin is available here.

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!


takes summer vacation for cleaning and re-organizing!

As in past summers, In The Garden will close operations from Aug. 1- Sept. 12.  This time will be used to clean and re-furbish the Undercroft and kitchen, make necessary repairs, etc.  for enhanced use of this space in the future! 
Meanwhile, 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!  
As mentioned before, 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.

We remember all who work for peace around the world: for Capt. Kristian Tonnessen,  Petty Officer Kristy Sizemore, Jordan Sellman, Matt Schumann, Captain Scott Whaley, Gunnery Sergeant Robert A Griffith Jr., and all who serve our country.
St. Elias Greek Orthodox Church, Church, in Damascus, Syria.
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 – Susan Randazzo, Terri Adame,  Sonia Cardenas, Ray Payton, Jon Tumas, John Blodgett, Jerry Sellman, Jean Olmstead, Mary Beittel, Marjorie Holzer, Eleanor Johnson, Elizabeth Lilly, Sean Lalik, Jeff McNealey, Walter Friedmann, Kay Sturm, John Sanders, Sharon Whaley, David and Tyra and all in prison, and others whom we name silently or aloud.
