We need help to maintain our church lawn!
We would like to establish a team of six or more men and women to maintain our church lawn. This includes mowing and edging the grass, and blowing the trimmings. We plan to establish a once every 8 week rotation. We will provide all equipment and any needed instructions or explanations.
Other landscape maintenance needs will be handled by quarterly all-church work days.
If you are interested in helping, please contact Mike Shrout or Tim Nielsen.
