The church garden is located at 4321 S. Elm-Eugene St. If you’d like to meet at the church and ride on the bus, please sign up at the Welcome Desk or contact the church office. In case of inclement weather, worship and an indoor picnic will be held at the church. You can also RSVP by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
Our garden ministry began in the spring of 2009, and since then, we have spent countless hours with our hands in the dirt. The produce we grow is shared with our congregation and with a local food bank. Read more about our garden ministry below, and come join us. We generally hold work sessions at our off-site garden (located at 4321 S. Elm-Eugene St.) in the spring and fall on Wednesdays and in the summer on Wednesdays and Saturdays.
Hear action leaders from First Christian Church, Church World Service and Partners in Health and Wholeness discuss ideas and resources for congregations that would like to start or expand a food ministry.
Event is 15.00 and includes lunch. Please note – no one will be turned away due to a lack of funds if this is an issue. If you would like to attend but are unable to afford the registration fee, please email Hannah@rafiusa.org.
Registration can be found online at: ctttpiedmont.brownpapertickets.com
Event is scheduled from 9:30-3:00 and a detailed agenda will be available soon. Join us!
First Christian already makes efforts to fight hunger and malnutrition and contribute to the health of our Greensboro community with several programs including our garden ministry. How else can we as a church answer the call of Jesus to ensure that the hungry are not just fed, but fed well?
Stewart Self, Garden Intern
We could still use some watering cans and tomato cages, and if you have any other garden tools that are taking up much-needed space in your shed and would like to donate anything, send me an e-mail at email@example.com.
Thanks to everyone who was able to make it to our Garden Blessing last Saturday. If you couldn’t make it, there’s always next year, but don’t miss your chance to learn a little bit about food and faith on June 23rd at 5:00 PM for the Food and Faith Summer Evening Education opportunity.

With love from your garden intern, Stewart Self
Oh God of the sun
Shine your blessing onto the leaves of the field.
Oh God of the rain
Let your waters run through the soil, nourishing the plants that will nourish us.
Oh God of the wind
Enfold us in your cooling breath as we work the land in the heat.
Oh God of the earth
May the soil be full of life – seen and unseen.
Oh God of all things
We thank you for this new season,
and we ask for your guidance through another summer of loving work and plentiful harvest.
