SHIM Garden Update 2021

The SHIM Garden has been tilled and some early vegetables planted. The pandemic has not kept us from growing food for our neighbors in need. You can help us with this
worthwhile endeavor by:
Donating money. Please put “SHIM Garden” in the memo on your check.
Donating your time. We still need volunteers to help with the gardening.
Thank you to those who saved newspapers for the SHIM garden. We now have enough for this year
 
Contact Carolyn Brow to be placed on our email information list and we will contact you.
Last year over 15,000 pounds of produce was distributed at the three food pantries operated by SHIM.
We grew a significant portion of that in our garden behind the church.

Reopening the Sanctuary for Worship

At the Session meeting on January 9, a
report was received from the Church Re-Opening Task Force. That report informed Session that the previously adopted criteria consideration of re-opening the church for worship was no longer appropriate. The Pennsylvania Department of Health has recommended that the criteria for safe indoor
gatherings is a metric of less than 10 cases per 100,000 and a positive test rate of less than 5%. Session has adopted this criterion as the minimum requirement for considering the re-opening of the church for worship.
Session also reminds us that even if these criteria are met, Session must consider other factors before re-opening the church for worship.
 
Remember, Jesus calls us to love our neighbor, which means protecting our neighbor from COVID-19 infection.
