Gifts of our time, talents, and money to those in need are an important part of the life of First Congregational Church.
May Outreach Outreach donations for May will go to Wasatch Community Gardens (wasatchgardens.org). This organization began in SLC in 1989 with a mission “to empower people of all ages and incomes to grow and eat healthy, organic, local food.” They offer garden space, educational programs, and community events to empower people to grow, harvest, preserve, and prepare fresh, healthy food. Wasatch Community Gardens has helped communities to establish gardens in unused blocks of the city, on school grounds, and is currently involved in a capital campaign to raise money to purchase a larger area of ground for a demonstration garden and the organization’s headquarters.
Continuing Community Service Projects
Each quarter volunteers are needed after church to make 600 sandwiches for the St. Vincent soup kitchen. Please help with this important outreach project if you can. Check out the upcoming events or watch for the notice in the Clairon.
