Master Gardener, Pam Perry, will teach you about vegetable garden pollinators, how to rotate crops and what to plant now from her 18+ years of experience managing the Demonstration Garden at the Maricopa County Extension Office. Bring your questions and maybe a friend to learn more about transitioning from Spring to Summer in your vegetable garden. Find out when to plant seeds, cloves, and transplants to have the best results.
Walking the labyrinth can be a time of being open to the presence of God, without any particular agenda in mind. Walking the labyrinth can be part of an ongoing discernment as we seek God’s direction around a particular question or concern. Walking the labyrinth can be a time to focus on a single Bible passage, or a favorite prayer or hymn. Walking the labyrinth can be a time to slow down and breathe in the Presence of God. If you are interested in knowing more about the labyrinth, please join Pastor Shirley at the entrance to the labyrinth this Sunday, February 16, at 10:00am to learn more about this spiritual practice.
Set in candlelight and silence and music and word, we invite you to participate in this holy time.If you are yearning for a closer relationship with God, if you are yearning for a time of silence, if you are yearning for time set apart to truly listen to God’s message in Scripture and prayer, we invite you to attend the Taizé Service. We meet in the Palo Verde Room just off the patio near the labyrinth at 5:00pm this Sunday, February 16.

For seven Tuesdays, beginning February 25, from 5:30-7pm, Pastor Jeff will facilitate the first section of Living the Questions in the Palo Verde Room.
