Sweet potato harvest volunteers
Sweet potatoes will be harvested Saturday, September 23, unless the soil is too wet. Sweet potatoes are a good source of nutrition and have been a major crop since McGill first began the garden. That Saturday is also a UNCC football concession day. Many who would normally volunteer at the Farm will be working the game, so we need others to step forward and fill the gap. If you are considering volunteering at the Farm, sign up today following worship.

The Finance and Stewardship Committee will receive budget requests at a meeting on September 25 at 7 p.m.
