Trinity United Methodist Church, McMurray PA, participated in a SIGN-A-THON at Robinson Center Mall last Saturday. It was held on the first floor in the center of the mall. There were games for the children and entertainment. Probably 200-300 Deaf people were there for the afternoon.
The Sign-a-thon was sponsored by HDS, an agency supporting the Deaf community in our area. Among their services is providing ASL interpreters. Trinity Church was one of several agencies that participated.
At Trinity, we viewed this as an opportunity to get the word out about our Deaf Ministry. On our table, we had a picture loop of activities related to our deaf ministry on a TV screen. You can see our church building and address on the screen in the photo.
