Mission

The Garden Ministry of New Horizons hopes to serve God’s people in Anderson by helping to feed their souls and their bodies. We will share our resources and our passion for gardening to make connections with the community, increase the supply of fresh produce and plants to our community and encourage a broader understanding of stewardship of God’s gifts.


Yard and Plantings

The gardens around the church building looked beautiful last year. The roses bloomed profusely. Thank you Lord for all you do for us. We pray you continue to watch over us and care for us.



Farmer’s Market

Summer & Fall (on the front lawn)

Available every Saturday in July through Labor Day.  

Rain or shine!!!
The fresh local produce is wonderful. We intend to have a few different activities available throughout the summer also, including a walking tour of our woods and vegetation. Please plan to visit us again next summer. If you are interested in being a vendor, please contact the church office (765)644-0949

 



 

If it's lasting beauty we seek, we're simply going to have to spend as much time tending our souls as we do tending our yards.~Elton Trueblood

Elton Trueblood talked about how we're a cut-flower world. We sever things from their life source and expect them to flourish. And we cut ourselves off from God and are dismayed when our lives wilt and fade. We spend so much time chasing after the baubles of the world, we're bankrupt when it comes to treasures of the holy. We want joy and beauty, but we want them without having to stay connected to the One who gives them. So we look for them in the world but come up empty-handed and empty-hearted. If it's lasting beauty we seek, we're simply going to have to spend as much time tending our souls as we do tending our yards.
