Garden Center Visit For September

Scene from Garden Center Visit For September.

Fr. Andrew started our visit with the story of Abraham and Sarah. The Lord said to Abram, "Leave your country and your people and go to the land I will show you. I will make you into a great nation. I will bless you. Your descendants will be as many in number as there are stars in the sky." The Lord changed Abram's name to Abraham (Father of Nations)and Saria his wife to Sarah (Princess).

Fr. Andrew held a plant and explained how in order to survive, the leaves have to be connected to the vine. God is the vine and we are the branches. To stay connected to God we must pray, be kind to one another, go to church and also receive communion.
