Adult forums in the next few weeks continue our discussions of uses of our building and, at the same time, of a new welcome statement for our church.
Last Saturday Warren and Carol Green, Mary Ann Borkowski and Ron Riggert worked on the gardens and grounds together. Thank you to all of them for their ongoing attention to the property. Thank you to Emilie Altemose for tending to the Magnolia trees in the front of our church. She has been pruning them and advising us about their care. Mary Ann has arranged for a soil application that will treat the insects that tend to appear on these trees from time to time. The next property and grounds day is Saturday, June 1. Ron and I are hoping that we can get enough help to remove the large cross from the front of the building. When the cross spire was put up on the building we decided to remove the cross from the building. We’re hoping to accomplish that this spring. If you can help, or have ideas about how to do it, speak to Ron.
