ELECTRIC SIGN GARDEN

Did you notice the garden that has been planted around the electric sign at the front of the Church? This all started with Gretchen Michaels being able to get a $250 grant to use towards the garden project and then the extreme generosity of Home Depot in Pasadena not only giving us free delivery but all of the supplies at almost half price!! The garden couldn’t have been created without the wonderful volunteers that came together to make the garden a reality. There were also enough supplies and liriope to plant and mulch around the big tree out front behind the sign. Thanks again to everyone—Beverly Duvall, Garden Ministry
