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.
As you can see, we had hand outs and advertisements for visitors. The "flowers". were a spinning game for the children where they could win prizes (depending on what number they landed on) . The jar on the end of the table was a container for a drawing for a $50 Visa card.
And of course, we had cookies
And we talked to a lot of people. The second picture is the drawing for the card on the entertainment stage. The young man is Caleb, our interpreter. We had the opportunity to meet many Deaf people. Most of them didn't live really close to our church, but we felt we made out presence known.
