Cultivate Landscaping Team
The goal: To give glory to God as He is revealed in nature through gardening and landscaping.
This team is open to all who are called to creative expression through garden design, building garden structures, sinking your hands into rich soil, planting, digging, care of gardens and landscapes and just plain working up a good sweat! No experience needed, just a desire to “grow”!
General landscaping of the church grounds and Prayer Garden are current areas of focus with an emphasis on creating a sacred space to meditate and pray for our church and the larger community. A walking labyrinth prayer tool is also part of our Prayer Garden.

Girls join us! Each month we have an activity to help us bond together, help the community or discuss a topic relevant to girls 5th grade and up. We will work to gain new perspectives on facing our everyday challenges together with God at our side.
Parents are welcome to join us as we embark on this adventure to encourage and connect the girls with a deeper awareness of God’s delight in who they are.

Men of New Life
“Men of New Life” are the opportunities for men to come together for varieties of reasons and at various times. Our specific focus is the building up of men of God.
The 2nd & 4th Tuesdays, each month, there are group gatherings with a specific topic for conversation. Topics include: “Understanding ourselves as men of Spirit,” “Who is God asking me to be?” “Men of Integrity,” etc.
Occasionally there are weekend gatherings where a group of men get away for 24 hours to focus on a specific aspect of the masculine journey through life. Topics vary and they always add some new scope to the depth of the masculine soul.
There are also planned annual adventure outings, including white water rafting, and even skydiving. Less adventurous, yet fun might be a trip to see the Brewers play. Each year, there are other recreational opportunities, including golf outings. And, service opportunities are in the planning for gathering to fulfill a helpful task for someone(s) in particular needs with which we can be helpful. These might be such as our Habitat for Humanity build opportunities. If there are other ideas for service work, we are always open to new projects as well.
“Men of New Life” are men like you; men that want to contribute proudly to their relationships with their families, co-workers, friends, and community. We are men with a spiritual desire to be authentic men as modeled by the creative energy of Jesus.
