Youth Group

We had a fantastic and fun final meeting! We discussed
Proverbs 16:9 and God's awesome plans for our future,
enjoyed some Italian ice, and finished out the school year with
a rollicking Nerf Battle. Thanks, everyone, for a great year!
Summer plans will be scheduled soon.

Summer is Here at GG!

This week marks the beginning of our summer season. Our final classroom visit is today, with Salem. After this we won't see our school friends until fall. A big thank you to all the hard working students, teachers, and staff who spent their spring semester with us! You guys are all awesome! Have a great summer and we look forward to your return in September.

With the ending of the school year, planting and other farm chores jump into high gear. This means all hands on deck as our summer workers return. We were very excited to welcome back long time GG employee Trevor Wilson yesterday! He got right to work helping clean out the warehouse. Now we just wait impatiently for the rest of our crew to start.

Monday is the final day to register for this year's CSA program. If you want high quality, local fruits and veggies grown right here, let us know before it is too late!

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
