Community Supported Agriculture and Ministry

A.J. and Lisa Nuckols, members of our Saint Andrews UMC, are taking a step of faith and vision in a move to Community Supported Agriculture. I won't try to explain how this all works, I'll let you check their website that does a much better job. Take a little time to look it over, it's very interesting.

One thing that really excited me was how they have included ministry to the less fortunate as part of the foundation of their plans. A portion of the produce will be delivered to churches for distribution to those in need in that community. We have had discussions at church about what kind of ministry and mission God could use our rural, country church to be a part of and we see this as a real possibility and a resource.

Please keep the Nuckols in your prayers as they take this step. Also, keep our churches in your prayers as we seek God's guidance as to how to reach out to those in need and to be the hands and feet of Christ.
