One of our visions for ministry is to engage in collaborative partnerships with others in the community who are doing good. For many months the consistory has been discussing entering into an intentional partnership with the ministry of Matthew 25 to use some of our property for refugee gardens, urban gardens, and student gardens. At our February meeting we authorized the deacons to pursue this partnership and draft memorandum of understanding for how this collaboration will work. We anticipate that some gardening will begin this spring. The board is excited to see how this kind of partnership develops and hope that this will be a learning process for future collaboration that will bless our community.
The project will teach children and families how to grow, eat, and preserve high quality food right in their own neighborhood. More details coming soon. If you have questions, don’t hesitate to ask Willis Sneller or Alan & Beth Brockette. For more information about Matthew 25, go to www.hub25.org.
