Fresh Organic Vegetables at Fairmont!

July 23, 2015

Buy Fresh Organic Vegetables at Fairmont! Reggie Ponder and Pete Eberhart are gardening together this summer for the purpose of providing fresh healthy vegetables for as many people as possible. We plan to have a vegetable table in THE FELLOWSHIP HALL following church services most Sundays from now until the fall. Fairmont Church goers will have first grabs on the produce. Voluntary donations are requested and will go directly to the Urban Ministry’s food bank. Any remaining vegetables will be taken to the food bank.
The organic vegetables are grown, using natural fertilizers and no chemical pesticides.
This Sunday we will have organic watermelon, cantaloupe, yellow squash, lima beans and maybe a little okra just picked from the garden. These delicious vegetables are offered to Fairmont church attendees and their visitors. You may leave a donation for the Urban Ministry but there is no charge. Take what you like and enjoy.
Invite your friends to church and share with them this opportunity to contribute in feeding the hungry and at the same time obtaining fresh, healthy vegetables straight from a Raleigh organic garden.

Putting together Lunch Bags!

July 16, 2015

It’s time to start gearing up for lunch bags for the fall! If you are the leader of a Sunday school class or a weekday group and would like to make lunch bags this fall, please email joseph.womble171@gmail.com or text 919-589-4243 to receive a month in which you will make lunch bags. You will be notified of the exact date one to two weeks prior to the date. Please go ahead and email or text – your group can be accommodated no matter their situation! If you’re an individual wanting to make bags we can also pair you up with a group. This is a truly great ministry and every church member should have a chance to participate, so please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
Thanks-
Joseph Womble
