Community Connections – Growing Gardens

Missions Garage Sale Success!

Many thanks to all of you who made the garage sale at ABC this past Saturday such a success!  Whether you donated items or your time, or stopped by to shop, your participation is greatly appreciated.

The sale raised $2200 that will go to Growing Gardens for Life to help build and equip garden sheds and greenhouses at orphanages in Mexico.  Even more satisfying than raising funds was how the church rallied to be involved in this event at many different levels – from leadership, to behind the scenes.  There was considerable interest shown in Growing Gardens for Life from people in the community, some even interested in going on a mission trip to Mexico.

The next step in developing our partnership with GGFL will be to host the directors of the ministry, Jon & Elaine Stevens at ABC.  Jon had indicated that they wouldn’t be able to come until mid-August but there has been another weekend open up on their schedule and they will be here the weekend of June 13-14.

Jon will be sharing during our morning worship service and then we’ll plan on a meal together afterward at the church. Details to be announced.
