Good News Gardens:
Pray . . . Plant . . . Proclaim
Thank you to Maddie Stochaj for our new logo for this ministry.
Take a plant . . . share the produce . . . become part of a garden without walls. We will give small plants to grow in our homes along with containers and tips for growing vegetables and flowers.
Mary and Charlie Johnson are preparing seedlings that will be blessed on April 18th and that will be distributed on April 18th, 22nd, and 25th, along with plant care instructions and recyclable containers that have been collected by the youth group. Everyone is encouraged to take a plant to grow at home. We will have a "garden without walls" that draws us together, contributes to a healthy environment, and proclaims God's abundance.
