Shenandoah Congregational UCC helps sponsor the community’s “Seeds of Faith”. Three other churches and this UCC church leases 22 acres and uses donations of seed and volunteer labor to harvest a crop which provides funds for feeding people world-wide. Since 2005, this Shenandoah project has supplied $162,000. Foods Resource Bank (FRB) supports them by providing a list of the needs in the small villages abroad, in which the village people are taught farming, business skills, and given the seeds. Also, wells and dams are built – cattle and small animal growing projects started. FRB sends 100% to the chosen project! If interested in assisting through money, time, land, supplies, farming expertise, or talent, contact Pastor Mel Hurst at 712.382.2856.
