What a Success!
Thank you to everyone who volunteered last Thursday at the drive-thru FFA event.

Here is a message from Gail, the onsite volunteer coordinator:

"Fare For All ran real smooth... The customers were so appreciative that we made the effort to make this happen. We had 123 orders, which is more than we have been doing in recent months. A big 'THANK YOU' to those who volunteered. These people are key. Without them this simply doesn't happen."

We are looking forward to hosting another event in July. Great job CoG!!  
How Does Your Garden Grow?
The Creation Care Team encourages gardeners to plant a little extra if you have the space. Original plans were for our ministry to coordinate a harvest-themed event with various activities. We don’t know if we’ll be able to do that this year, but we believe it would still be wonderful to share God’s garden abundance with the congregation in some fashion. We will try to make that happen this fall. Hope your garden is off to a great start!  
Get Your Green Thumb Ready
Spring has sprung and it’s time to plan CoG’s landscaping projects to help keep the grounds looking good. This year the goal will be to keep projects easy-to-tackle while aligning with social distancing guidelines. Our Adopt-A-Garden program was a great success last year and we are happy to bring that back this year. This allows you and your family to help CoG by maintaining a small planting area or potted plants throughout the growing season. Other project work will focus on weed maintenance and perennial additions around the property—watch for more details soon. If you would like to join this ministry, please email  Kellie  at the church office.
