Discover new ways to Celebrate Creation and Build Creative Communities
A One-Day Workshop at Parkway United Methodist Church
Pompano beach, FL on Saturday, January 30th 2010 from 8:30 AM – 1:30 PM (including lunch)
Leard how a small struggling church thought beyond their pews, developed their vision of expanded community and grew a transformative ministry designed to bear fruit for generations.
Our community is growing closer together and new relationships are being nurtured across economic, cultural and racial divides. Soon we will help supply food pantries with fresh local food to feed people in need, and the garden will be able to do so for years to come. Those coming here grow their own food, develop new skills, listen to stories, watch butterflies, see trees grow taller, flowers blossom, fruit ripen…and rediscover God’s creation.
This workshop gives new insight to those looking to Celebrate and Care for Creation in new ways.
You should attend if you are:
A Pastor or Church Leader, a “Creative Visionary”, a gardener, an outreach ministry leader thinking about new ways to celebrate creation and reach out to neighbors, a church member who wants to promote dignity and nutrition in hard times, a ministry leader concerned about food security, a trustee worried about the cost of “mantaining the ground” and facilities rental, a youth minister looking for creative sustainable ways to involve youth…
Hear the story of the PTCG and how it’s changing a community
Become aware of key factors/principles that make a church-community-nonprofit garden successful
Apply these factors/principles to construct a basic plan for Creation Care in their own context
Be knowledgeable about resources available from PTCG and other organizations
Return home able to “think beyond their pews” and take action
