Call for Action!
Fall Clean-up of Church Grounds
The Board of Trustees asks for the stewardship of individuals and Sunday School classes to invest time, talent, and diligence in September and October to catch up on care of the landscaping around the church and Henderson House (the full block of the church campus, Bowie, College, Powell, and Lindsey Streets).
Tasks needed are removal of vines and volunteer shoots (some quite large) that infiltrated the landscape plants in the beds around the church, including the parking lot, the yard of the Henderson House, and the covered walkways between the sanctuary and administrative offices. Dead branches are also be removed. Pruning of blooming shrubs and trees such as camellias, azaleas, and crepe myrtles, if needed, will be done at the appropriate time which is not summer or fall!
A detailed list of tasks, along with a sign-up sheet, will be available in the church office September 1, and will be updated weekly. Lawn bags for debris are available in the church office, or you are welcome to provide your own. Please deposit debris in the church dumpster.
