There are 2 bins in the side entrance to the church for collecting donations. They will be clearly marked for either May 20th or June 24th. If you prefer to make a financial contribution, please write your check payable to Trinity Church with "youth group mission" on the memo line. The youth will sort the May donations on Sunday May 16th. Please contact Dr. Sarah Prevelige to learn more about how you can participate at: firstname.lastname@example.org
We thank our young people for their leadership, vision, and compassion.
The Good News Gardens
These smaller plants stayed here at the nursery. They will be given away when they get a little bigger. The youth group collected pails for Good News Gardens then Jon & Charlie turned them into self watering containers. We will transplant the plants when they get bigger and we will help them find new homes and a new gardeners, new people to enjoy and share the harvest. We have about 100 plants here at the nursery.
We already found new homes for about 120 plants. Gardening advice is available if anyone has questions about caring for their new plants.
The National Good News Gardens has created a curriculum for a ten-session course that combines topics of food and faith. We have no solid plans for leading this group at Trinity, Milford, but I am wondering if anyone has questions about it? I am happy to teach if people are interested in the course. More info to come in the newsletter. - Mary Johnson
