Monday's Ministry- Growing Vegetables

You can help people by growing vegetables. It isn't too late to get your seeds in the ground. Radishes, bush beans, bush peas, and lettuce are easy to grow. Plus these vegetables grow quickly.

You can share your homegrown vegetables with you local Christian soup kitchen, neighbors, church workers, and food pantries (check first to see if they will accept fresh foods).

If you're unable to grow vegetables, then you can also participate by collecting canned food to donate. It doesn't take a big plan. Just grab a box or pull along a wagon. Spend an hour going door to door and you'll be amazed at how much food you will be able to collect.

At harvest time, your family can go U picking and give away the fresh produce. Wouldn't it be special for people to eat fresh strawberry shortcake or freshly sliced peaches at a soup kitchen?

Monday's Ministry - Baby Shower

Our church has started their Mother's Day tradition. This time, every year, there is a baby bassinet set up outside of the church nursery. It gets filled with baby items - clothing, diapers, toiletries, even Bibles. Around Mother's Day the items are donated to the Pregnancy Care Center and given to the new expecting mothers. If your church doesn't do this, you can still participate and drop your items off at the Pregnancy Care Center.
