Christ Community

Christ Community United Methodist Church, in the heart of St. Louis, is reaching out to their community by providing garden plots for individuals to grow food for themselves and by providing food through their emergency food pantry.  They also use their community garden for growing food for distribution through their food pantry.  A growing number of churches in the Missouri Conference are turning to this kind of green outreach ministry using portions of their church lawn to feed people rather than simply growing grass.  If your congregation is doing this we would like to hear about it.  Let us know by adding a comment at the bottom of this MissionCast page.

You can read about the Christ Community United Methodist Church garden ministry in the August 7, 2009 issue of the Review, which is the Missouri Conference Newspaper.   You can go to the electronic edition of the Review by clicking the link below.
