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.
Recipes 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.
We are asking for anecdotes and memorable moments from God's Grub, favorite bible verses, your favorite God's Grub meal and of course, recipes....lots of recipes.
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!
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).
Saron is having another Family camping weekend August 15-17. This year we will be camping at Oaks on the River campground in Monticello...close to home! There is room for campers with hookups for water and electric and, for those who like to rough it, space for tents. Details and reservations will be coming in May so watch in upcoming bulletins and on this page. If you have questions you can talk to Brenda Lund, Karen Blake or Terry Fuchs.
