Once again we will be helping our friends at the Southside Community Land Trust with their super fun and exciting annual plant sale. This is a major event that draws thousands of people from all over the city basically into our backyard! It’s a wonderful opportunity for us, as a church, to serve our neighbors. There is a tremendous need for volunteers and I know that God would be pleased to see as many of us as possible sacrifice a Saturday morning to be part of this. I volunteered last year and there are tasks for everyone. There are some more rigorous tasks but also lighter ones for those who are nervous about that.
The block of time to serve is 8-11:45 am. The plan is that all Ren volunteers will meet at 7:30 am for prayer, coffee and Knead Donuts. Then, afterward, at noon, we will come back to the church to share a meal together. The lunch is optional if you have to get to work or have some other obligation. Fill out this very short form (click below) to let us know if you can be part of this volunteer effort. Respond back to this email with any specific questions you may have. For parents with small children I would not recommend bringing them to volunteer. But, attending the event with the kids would be fantastic! Southside Community Land Trust City Farm is very close to Ren .5 miles away and a 13 minute walk. We will likely walk from Ren so we don’t take up parking at the farm.
