Third Thursday Outreach Night: October 19, 2017

On the third Thursday of every month our church building transforms into a community center, complete with food pantry, personal needs supplies, and access to certified Community Health Workers. Please join us as a volunteer at a Third Thursday Outreach Ministry night. There are a variety of ways to participate and we are always looking for new faces. Even if you can only come for part of the time, your service will be greatly appreciated.

Garden Update: Community Gardening

Community Gardening:

Get ready to put your garden to bed. On October 20, 2017 we will be clearing all of the community garden plots. If you wish to take care of your own, please contact Jen at to make arrangements.

Also, our livestock are going to be headed to Scott’s house for the winter. They’ll have more space and better accommodations. If you’d like to pay them a visit, send Scott an email, and he’ll get you directions:

Garden Update: Agripreneurship


On September 24, 2017 The Community Garden hosted an event we liked to call: (M)eat and Greet our Agripreneurs. It was a night of tours, presentations, food, and education. Guests learned from some of the agripreneurs that operate out of TUC Garden as they shared about their start-up businesses. If you’ve ever wanted to turn your gardening or agricultural hobby into a profitable venture, please contact Scott to find out more information. We are making our plans for 2018 and would love you to be a part of it.
