Plant sale to grow ministries

Our Father Lutheran Church, 3304 Groometown Road, will host a plant sale April 22 from 8 a.m.-noon. The rain date is April 23from noon-4 p.m. 

More than three-dozen types of plants from perennials and annuals to ground covers, herbs, and vegetables will be available. Some are ready to transplant now and some will need to continue growing first.

It is recommend that you arrive early before your choices of plants are sold out.  

All monies raised from Our Father’s plant sale will go to various ministries from hosting 12-step programs to Sunday worship.
