We provide the opportunity for people to be active participants in God’s kingdom work in Prince George in a few ways.
On the 4th Sunday of the month we provide lunch which is served at the St. Vincent de Paul Society downtown. Members of PGCRC make soup during the week and after the church service on that Sunday we assemble the buns, warm up the soup, transport it all to the downtown location and serve those who in need of a meal. If you are at PGCRC on the 4th Sunday of the month, take the opportunity to visit the people in the basement after the service who are doing this generous work.
Growing Community Gardens (GCG)
With the help of a Sustaining Congregational Excellence grant from the CRCNA, we began construction of the GCG in spring of 2010. This is a way of using our church property to be a blessing to the community around us. We currently have 34 plots which are rented by a variety of people. The GCG allows us to have common ground on which to meet our neighbours, for them to meet us, to give people the opportunity to grow food, to learn about gardening and composting, and to practice humanity’s calling in Genesis 2:15 where God placed Adam in the garden “to work it and take care of it.” Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or talk to someone in the church about signing up for a plot for the season, and participating in communal work days, learning events, and organizational meetings.
