Fall 2022 Mission & Ministry Grant

Youth Greenhouse Educational Center

This project is an expanded partnership with Team Humanity/Vital to provide space for an outdoor garden. Currently, youth in the community grow vegetables that are then sold to a local restaurant.

With the grant, First Christian Church will expand the program into a yearlong opportunity with the addition of a greenhouse. The new greenhouse will also allow the church to conduct educational gatherings on various aspects of gardening, basic horticulture, and entrepreneurship.
