The Unity Garden
Neighbors on Ford Avenue joined Grace Outreach in March to plant seeds in starter pots. Then during Love Laundry at the Bailey Court Apartments, our neighbor, Sky Muller, announced news of the Garden. Enthusiasm was expressed by all, especially from one of the apartment residents who happily volunteered to work with Sky and our Outreach Committee to make it happen.
Work has continued through the summer and produce was harvested to make salsa for the Community Brunch in June. The garden continues to provide flowers, herbs, melons, and vegetables. Soon the garden will rest for the winter to prepare for the spring.
Our Local Food Bank thanks the parishioners of Grace Church for their abundant donations. All items are greatly appreciated.
LOVE LAUNDRY – Spring 2019
On Saturday, March 17th, Bert and Barbara Nye held a LOVE LAUNDRY at the laundry room next to the Office at Bailey Court Apartments across the street from Grace Church. They provided free washing, drying and folding loads of laundry for the individuals and families at the complex, starting at 9:00 am. Your donations were greatly appreciated.
Grace Church hosts a Community Brunch any time there is a 5th Saturday of the month. These brunches are rewarding experiences! Not only because of the people who are fed, but because of the relationships that are formed through the warm conversations we share. Our next brunch will be on 10/30, which is the Saturday following Thanksgiving.
