Just been praying through some community needs and outreach possibilities.
One of the ideas that keeps coming back around to me is using some of the land here at New Hope to offer community garden plots to our neighbors.
We don't have a lot of land that's not used, but I'd suspect we have 3/4 of an acre. If we partnered with the area extension agent and got some help from the local gardeners, maybe we could help some budgets stretch farther and have the opportunity to meet some of our neighbors on a regular basis.
If we tied it in with "Veggie Tales" activities for kids and their parents, who knows how much impact we could have.
