Mission Opportunities at Goodness Grows

Mission opportunities abound right here! Goodness Grows, the mission of CGCC, is always glad to welcome volunteers. The busy season is almost upon us and helping hands are always appreciated!

For I was hungry and you gave me food;
I was thirsty and you gave me a drink;
I was a stranger and you took me in;
I was naked and you clothed me;
I was sick and you visited me.
I was in prison and you came to me.

.....When you did it to one of the least of these my brothers and sisters,
you were doing it to me.

Matthew 25: 35-36, 40
What can YOU do?
