17 Garden spots are still available for willing volunteers
Some spots just require twice a year maintenance, pruning and clipping back the shrubs and bushes. (See Garden Plot Guidelines @ the back of the church and sign up sheet). Keeping the brush trimmed helps our Redmond Police patrol the campus against illegal activities. You can also get creative in some spots and plant flowers or ornamental bushes, roses. Many times volunteers will do this in memory of their loved ones. See the following map for the spots available. (Notice 1B and 1A are still available!) If you have questions just ask the current gardeners JoAnna Birmingham, Betty Koenig, Cindy Pearson and Julia Steeples.

Join Pastor Austin and friends at Big Block Brewery (14950 NE 95th St, Redmond, WA 98052) http://www.bigblockbrewery.com/ for an informal time together to end our day well and discuss the places where our understanding of God connect with our daily lives and current events. Anything is fair game. This time is meant to be inviting and engaging as we continue to explore our faith in light of the world around us. Bring a friend, men and women are invited. We hope you join us for one of these fun times.
