Do you like to work outside and be one with nature?  Do you want the outside of your church to look neat and tidy? Then we can use your help.  The prayer garden and outside church/ YEA center grounds need attention this spring and summer (and probably autumn too!).  If you are interested in helping to do weeding, pruning, raking, (and sweating in the process), please see Becky Strauss-Sweet.  All ages and ability levels are welcome.  Even if you are tiny in age but big in heart and can pick up pine cones and toss them into a 5 gallon bucket, you are perfect for "Team Cleanup!" We can set up a recurring schedule or pick not rainy days to do this.
