The Garden Church is re-imagining church as an interconnected organism, worshiping, loving and serving together as we transform a plot of land into a vibrant urban garden.
Rooted in the Christian tradition and Swedenborgian theology, the Garden Church provides a living experience of encountering the Divine in community, scripture, nature, and the life of useful service, and being the church together on multiple levels. Through worshiping, working and learning together, feeding the hungry, and addressing the needs of the local community, this church is living sanctuary for all who seek a place to grow, to love and be loved, and to belong. Creating a place of spiritual community where God’s love is made visible as people are fed in body, mind, and spirit.
The seeds we have planted have grown beautifully! Now it’s time to put down roots….will you join us?
Please donate today! Your continued commitment through monthly pledges and one-time gifts give us the support we need in these early years, as we scale and move into local sustainability. Thank you!
Note that you can choose to have your donation one-time, weekly, monthly, or annually. We welcome your generosity in any form!
It’s amazing to look back and see all that has happened since last year at this time, when we launched our Seed Money campaign. All of those wonderful seeds have grown into a beautiful reality—the Garden Church has been planted and grown. We are so grateful for your support, and invite you to celebrate with us all that your prayers, pledges, and participation have cultivated!
As we’re looking towards our second year, we are focusing on putting down roots. Putting down roots in the earth as we continue to cultivate and grow food for the local community, putting down roots in our community as we continue to bring people together for individual and communal transformation, and putting down roots in our faith as we re-imagine church and loving God and neighbor.
Your continued commitment through monthly pledges and one-time gifts give us the support we need in these early years as we scale and move into local sustainability. We believe that this work is part of something much bigger than the people who come through our gates. We know that we’re part of an interconnected community and conversation with people all over the world who are committed to bringing more love and justice, compassion and peace to the world. We want to keep showing up and cultivating this piece of earth. Thank you for joining us in this work.
