The Grounds & Garden Club assists with planning and carrying out garden projects and upkeep around OLBS grounds to keep our churches warm and inviting places to honor God and worship.
Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest.” —Matthew 9:37-38
Moderate temperatures, more daylight, gentle breezes, birds singing…it all means Spring has sprung. And generally in Spring we turn our attention outdoors and start more yard projects. We’re the same here at OLBS!
We’ve been blessed over the years that many of the plants, trees, flowers, landscaping rocks and even mulch have been generously donated to us. And we’re doubly blessed to have a Grounds & Garden Club to help us maintain the landscaping around our churches.
If you see something around our campuses that look like it needs attention (plants that may look dead but really may only be dormant, benches or fences in need of repair, etc.) please contact the parish office. Church grounds belong to the entire parish, so please don’t assume responsibility for a garden or landscape project before you check with us.
If you would like to join our Grounds & Garden Club, please contact the parish office today! As they say, may hands make light work, and we are ever grateful when the Lord sends laborers into his harvest.
Are you called? Do you have a green thumb, love to dig in the dirt, arrange flowers and the like? You would be a great fit for our Grounds & Garden Club. Call the Parish Office for more information today (847) 979-0901 or firstname.lastname@example.org
