Community Garden

On our land to the north of the parking lot, was started in 2009 with just 12 plots and has grown to 80 plots. We as a congregation are providing a needed service to our community. Most of the gardeners are not members of our church. Many have expressed sincere appreciation to our church for making it possible for them to have a place to garden.
