Would you share from your garden?

The Environment Stewardship Small Group is harvesting our 2015 church vegetable gardens. We donate all of our produce to Saline Area Social Services through Food Gatherers’ Faith and Food project. Each year, SASS tries to meet the needs of hungry people in our community, but they are struggling to provide enough food.

Please consider helping. If you have excess produce from your home garden that you would like to add to our donation, contact Debra Manchester.

Open Doors

The name of the Open Doors Committee reflects its purpose: to not only welcome all by opening our doors so new members may enter, but also to reach out to the community to live the Word of God. Open Doors is responsible for our presence on the Internet and in social media. Our physical projects include the “Little Free Library” that has been erected in the Prayer and Meditation Garden. It provides free books that can be borrowed and returned at any time. Our goal with this library is to enhance reading and literacy in the community. Open Doors also supports the Grief and Loss workshop, the Taste of Saline, the Saline Winterfest, and other annual community projects. We have sponsored an Identity theft presentation and will be offering other presentations to the community that deal with faith and justice issues. If you are interested in joining this ministry, contact the church office or an Open Doors committee member.
