The groundhogs are devouring the community garden this year. We would prefer to offer our free veggies to patrons of the food pantry rather than these varmints. If you have any large traps, please drop them off inside the garden fence. In addition, if you have any expired fresh fruit or vegetables bring them for bait. They love melon rinds and cabbage.

As a VUMC congregation we have been asked to have a week of prayer by Rev. Dr. Bechtold. More information to follow.
