Community Garden Help 

Help this summer is greatly appreciated in weeding & harvesting the community garden. Please contact Ariel Williams at if you are interested in volunteering.



On Sept. 11 people from around the ELCA will be stewarding their time in hands-on service to their neighborhood.  It’s easy to get involved in that effort here in Adams County!  Eight activities are already set up and awaiting volunteers (including one which involves providing supplies, just in case you’ve got time earlier, but none on that day).  Just go to for more information and to sign up!  Grab some friends and get your hands dirty with God’s work!
