On Saturday, September 6, our younger children and families will join us at the farm at 10:00 am for a day of fun activities and a cookout. On September 12 the children will participate in the Empty Bowls Initiative at Main Street Books. Then, on September 27 they will serve alongside the children of Ekklesia at Hope House.
