Scenes From Last Sunday

Thanks to Darius for joining Jess to lead singing last week! Thanks also go to Mia and Liam for being such good sports and participating in a "Children's Sermon." We always appreciate these young people!
We enjoyed a visit to the raised bed garden to see our onion bed bunnies, who have since hopped on out and headed off into the world.

Spaghetti Sauce Canning Class

Saturday, August 24, 10am-2pm (or until we're done)
Sign up on the bulletin board to join us for this tomato extravaganza with Rachel Vignon. She is willing to share her family recipe and teach us all how to make a truly delicious spaghetti sauce. Jars will be provided. There will be a small fee to cover ingredients. (Fee - around $5 or less - to be determined when we have a total count of participants.) The ending time of 2pm is really just a guess. We could be done much faster or a little later...depending on our kitchen skills and number of participants. But, no matter how long it takes, you won't regret this "summer school" opportunity!

Summer at GG

The Mission Group from Uniontown, PA's Trinity United Presbyterian Church joined us Monday. Some of them were also with us last summer and had the experience of working out in the gardens during some very toasty days. This year they worked inside and participated in jam making, tie-dying bags, cleaning up the greenhouse, and, of course, painting a rock for us. Two of the folks also helped Rachel make Communion bread for this Sunday, over which they even said a prayer. So, this Sunday's Communion at Common Ground will include fresh bread blessed by a pastor from Trinity. We thank them for their prayers, hard work, and good humor!

Jam Chefs

Tuesday's feast with Sue found our crew cooking chicken fajitas as well as making some homemade applesauce for next week. They pulled off another culinary delight! The rest of the week was filled with CSA prep...which included making fresh Basil Pesto...cleaning inside, and gardening tasks outside that always need done. There certainly is never a shortage of weeds! Stop by anytime to pull a few while appreciating the wonder of God's beautiful Creation!

We Are Family

Last Friday we took a field trip to Columbiana for a lunchtime feast at Chang Tai Chinese restaurant, as we bid farewell to one of our interns, Cameron Fortune. He will spend the rest of summer at football practice but we hope he returns next year! We will also soon say good-bye to our second year intern, Darius Surgenavic. In less than three weeks, he will head off to college. We sure were lucky to have him be part of our GG family for two summers...and we'd certainly love to welcome him back next year! Our long-time intern, Trevor Wilson, will thankfully be with us throughout the summer. We are keeping our fingers crossed we don't have to say good-bye to him any time soon!

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
