Fall Harvest & CG Birthday Celebration

Saturday, October 19 from 2-4pm

Are you ready to gather and celebrate the fall harvest, like we do each October? This year we are adding a little twist! On this exact date in 2008 (11 years ago!), CGCC held our first service in our building! Since it is our 11th "birthday" we felt it would be a great time to celebrate. So, we will continue our annual fall tradition and add in some birthday fun!


What will you carve?

We will also be having a pumpkin carving contest. All ages are invited to carve a jack o'lantern (or two) and bring them here for judging and fun.

Keep an eye out for further details
to be announced soon.

Fall at GG

Lots of prep work going on here for October 12th's Giveaway. We have been busy sorting, folding, and stacking clothes as well as moving tables. Our school friends have also been a big help with this!

Greenhouse Mouse!

Tuesday's lunch was the best sloppy joe sandwich you could ever imagine! Miss Jill was our head cook, leading Tori and Dustin in following Rachel's Grandma Long's recipe. They paired that with fries, apple slices, and fresh green beans. It was another day of good eating at GG!

Today is CSA day. Only one more week left! This week our crew made fresh apple bread (from apples Keegan picked at an orchard) and homemade salsa verde. It is an exciting share day!

Miss Barb came for a working visit on Tuesday. She dove in and helped with the clothing sorting. Thanks, Miss Barb! We enjoyed having you here! See you next week!

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
