Bluff Park Reconciling Ministry

We in the Bluff Park Reconciling Ministry small group believe that all people matter to God as persons of sacred worth. While not everyone at our church agrees with us, our group enthusiastically welcome and affirm persons of all ages, races, ethnicities, sexual orientations, gender identities, economic backgrounds, educational levels, marital status, and mental or physical abilities to attend, join, and participate fully in the life of our ministries and studies. Regardless of what you believe or doubt, your life experiences, your past or your future, you are a cherished member of God’s family. We welcome you with open arms and invite you to grow in faith along with us, as we seek to serve and love our neighbors.

Gardens on the Bluff

The Gardens on the Bluff Community Garden is a raised bed garden consisting of 26 beds that is open for both members and non-members.  Each of the 26 beds is rented annually.  Materials and instructions are provided.

The Green Team, which welcomes volunteers, tends to the gardens around the church including landscaped beds in front of the Sanctuary, Education Building, and Gymnasium, as well as the Children’s Garden.  The Green Team orders and plants seasonal color in the Fall and in the Spring.  The Children’s Garden is used to teach children about gardening and includes a summer gardening camp, special groups, and Children’s Sunday school participation.
