294. MissionCast – Community Outreach Gardens

Haiti

Our thanks to UMTV (United Methodist Communications) for permission to use their video on the outreach community garden of Cedar Grove United Methodist Church, in North Carolina. If your congregation has an interest in growing an Outreach Community Garden this might be a good time to start planning. There is a growing interest in this area of ministry with lots of information available on the Internet.
Here are some more MissionCasts about community gardens.

117. Food for Body and Soul – Union Memorial UMC

Garden

If you have worshiped at Union Memorial United Methodist Church, in St. Louis, you know that their community is offered “passionate worship”  Currently the congregation is also offering “radical hospitality” to their community.  They have installed the lastest media equipment with screens in the sanctuary.  They are working on the church facilities to make them completely accessible and friendly.  And they are reaching out to the community in many ways including serving lunch four days a week and a huge breakfast on Sunday mornings.  That is where the garden comes in.  Like a few other churches in Missouri that have yards they are using them to grow food for the hungry.  The produce from the garden is used in their feeding program.  A second garden is planted for anyone from the community wanting fresh greens to come and pick as much as they want.  MissionCast brings this story of radical hospitality.
