COMMUNITY GARDEN

The garden is located behind the Licking United Methodist Church on Green St.  Anyone and everyone is welcome to help themselves to anything in the garden.

FARMERS MARKET

The FARMERS MARKET has begun for Spring 2020.  We appreciate all the vendors and customers that come faithfully each week.  If you’d like to participate as a vendor, contact the church office.  The Licking Farmers Market is on Wednesdays and Saturdays, 8 AM – 12 PM.  

The FARMERS MARKET is observing social distancing to be able to serve everyone and keep everyone safe.  Please limit your time at the market, make a list of things you need, a list of items available will be on Facebook the morning of the Farmers Market, please allow the vendors to handle items for you, avoid touching your face or cellphone while shopping and of course wash your hands before and after being a at the Farmers Market.  Thank you all for visiting the Farmers Market during these difficult times.  We want to continue this service and have it be safe for all.

We here at the Licking United Methodist Church regularly support different missions.  Right now we support Mocimboa da Praia UMC in Mozambique, Africa.  We have a monthly offering for them to help support them.  This helps them in many ways, from building supplies/maintenance to pastor’s expenses to orphanages and women’s shelters in the area.  Check out their Facebook page.  Mozambique Facebook page

We also support the mission work of B.J. and Rachel Whitaker.  The Whitakers are church planting missionaries serving in Alcora, Spain.  B.J. is the son of members in our congregation.
