Busy Fun Church Saturday

Folks from Community were spread out all over town on Saturday this week. 

Our little boys ran the Fruitland Park Elementary Trick or Trot 5k with friends from church. 

Meanwhile, Mama and Baba were with a bunch of church leaders at New Covenant UMC for our first ever Super Charge Conference - every church in the district at one time! Here we are listening to former Community members, Joel and Heather Pancoast, share about their ministry at Gator Wesley in Gainesville.

Meanwhile at our new Community garden, Harvest of Hope, a crew of volunteers cleared away trees and a bunch of brush and built 12 of our 50 new garden boxes. It's so exciting to see this start to take shape!

And of course it's October. So the Pumpkin Patch is still going strong.

Special Memories

This ring belonged to Debbie's mom and was one of her favorites. Peridot was her birthstone. 
Last week we got the ring resized so that Debbie could start wearing it now.
