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.

This Week We Remember in Prayer

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.
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 – Edith Espinal and her family, Michael Mahan, Del Hallowell, Sonia Cardenas, Ray Payton, Eleanor Johnson, Elizabeth Lilly, 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.
Birthdays: Barb Gill, Tobias Grunauer, Liz Anrdt,
Anniversaries: Lindsey & Patrick Herl, Jenny & Andrew Grunauer, Vanessa and Jim Jamison
We give thanks today for the Baptism of Braxton Kelley Tumas, grandson of Rich & Sharon Whaley, son of Kit & Jon Tumas
