Join us for our 4-week series: July 2nd, 9th, 16th, and 23rd.

The Bible is full of stories and examples related to gardening.  This four-week study will give participants the opportunity to explore why plants and their cultivation are such rich metaphors for the Christian life.

The sermons will be offered live during Sunday-morning worship at Newlonsburg Presbyterian Church (Murrysville, PA).  However, they will also be available each week via video or podcast links (meaning that participants can access them at any time).

We are encouraging people to continue attending their community of faith as normal and listen to each installment of the series later.

In addition to receiving the podcast, participants will have the opportunity to engage these topics more deeply each week.  Read below for more details.
