Saron Community Garden

This year the Outreach Ministry Team is planning a community garden in which we will grow vegetables that will be served at God's Grub.  In order for this to be successful, we are in great need of people to help planning and working the garden.  If you have an interest in being part of this new endeavor, please contact Dani Jesperson at 952-649-1694.  Also please know that you do not need to be an experienced gardener or volunteer.  The only quality needed is your desire to make a positive change in our community.

God's Grub Cookbook

cookbookRecipes Wanted!  We are creating a God's Grub cookbook to commemorate our community of Saron!  We have been celebrating our wonderful community and God's love through our monthly meals and we want to make a lasting memorial of our great get-togethers.

Extra Ham Stamps?

Do you have extra ham stamps from Coborn's?  Bring 'em to church!  God's Grub is collecting stamps and will use them to buy hams for upcoming meals.  The box is in the office!

Some Assembly Required

We need you!  Do you have an extra hour Thursday around noon?  We need a few people to come in and assemble bulletins.  This job typically takes two people about ½ hour.  


We are also assembling a team of people who would take turns bringing the Scroll to the post office once a month (occasionally there may be more mailings).
