Right now and continuing throughout the growing season.
Here's how it works. Church members and others who have more in their garden than they can eat are invited to bring their excess produce to the church and place it on the "The Lord's Produce" table. Then on Sunday morning anyone who would like to have some fresh produce may place a financial donation in the Freewill Donation container and select the vegetables or fruit they would like to take home.
All donations will be sent to the United Methodist Committee on Relief (U.M.C.O.R.) to help with disaster relief. U.M.C.O.R. does all sorts of things to put God's love into action. When disaster strikes, they are often first to arrive on site with aid, supplies, food, clothes, and volunteers. Whether it is flooding on the east coast, fires on the west coast, or tornadoes here in the midwest, U.M.C.O.R. is ready thanks to the donations and dedication of United Methodist church members just like us. Check out their website to find out more about all the good work done by the United Methodist Committee on Relief.
It's a Win- Win - Win Situation!
One person finds a great use for extra produce. Someone else gets fresh homegrown produce. And the United Methodist Committee on Relief has more funding to help those in need following natural disasters. What could be better!?
