Church School Spring Planting

On May 30th, 2010, the Church School celebrated the end of the school year by planting hundreds of broccoli, tomatoes, lettuce and other assorted vegetables in our backyard garden. The fruits of their labor will feed those who come to our Wednesday's Pasta suppers.

This planting illustrates two of our emphases as a congregation -youth and green ministry.

We strive to give our youth a solid Christian foundation that entails serving others as they grow deeper in the Faith.

Our green ministry, born of the recognition that God has made us stewards of this creation, has many facets.. Among the more important ones is eating locally grown fruits & vegetables to both reduce carbon footprint and improves our diet. The tragedy in the Gulf of Mexico underscores how important it is to nurture and protect this earth, given to use by a benevolent Creator.

Many thanks for Jennifer Kilps and Bruce Fletcher for helping to organize this event
