"Jesus is calling us to a work of the heart that deepens faith and deepens not just our love for God but for others."
HAB Community Garden Work Day
Friday, September 4 at 5:30 p.m.
There is a lot of cleanup and tidying up to do to the garden beds to prepare for fall and winter crops. Even though the summer was long and hot, there was a lot going on in the garden. We harvested peppers and okra, made datil pepper vinegar for Wednesday night dinners, and built a little free library for the garden. I am sure that you noticed the volunteer watermelon vine that practically swallowed up the garden. We were able to harvest four watermelon that were large enough and hopefully they will be on the salad bar Wednesday night. But, since I am not a watermelon farmer, we will not know until we slice them up. We will also be discussing plans for fall and winter crops. Please come join us and be a part of this exciting and “fruitful” outreach ministry. Happy Gardening, Rebekah Duvall

Donations to Rethreaded
It’s time to clean out your closets and do a good deed for others at the same time! HAB Women’s Ministry is collecting white t-shirts for Rethreaded, a non-profit based in Jacksonville which helps women who were victims of the slave trade and addictions. We would like to help these women turn their lives around. We are collecting no-longer-needed or new white, 100% cotton, size large and larger t-shirts. It’s OK to have a picture or words on the front or back, but please no side seams. You may bring the t-shirts to the fellowship hall “lobby” and place them in the “Rethreaded t-shirts” bin. Rethreaded also needs and accepts monetary donations. Donations may be made directly on the Rethreaded website (www.rethreaded.com) or given to Vickie Landers in the church office.
