“Whoever wants to reach a distant goal must take small steps”
– Saul Bellow

On Sunday, October 26th we will be gathering together to take some of these “small steps” by doing some community mapping in the San Pedro area. After searching through various definitions of the term, community mapping, this one stuck out as appropriate for the mission of the Garden Church. Community mapping is a “methodology used to link community recourses with an agreed upon vision”. In this case, the vision being the garden, the church, and the community hub that we hope to eventually bring to the San Pedro community. During this activity, we will be identifying various assets and resources that San Pedro has to offer that supports our end goal. You will be using a handout where you will identify and record any markets, schools, vacant lands, community gardens, bus stops and potential partners that you come across on your designated street (we will assign you a street on Sunday).  You will work in pairs or triads to walk down one street (we have 10th street to 21st street left to map) from Harbor Blvd. to Pacific Ave. We will be meeting in front of the San Pedro docks at the water fountain on 6th street and Harbor Blvd. to give out the record sheet and further discuss before venturing out to our designated streets. Can’t wait to see you all there!

After we do our mapping project, our work together, we will gather outdoors for worship in a park near by and reflect together on what we discovered in our community.

We will continue together in community by sharing in our community meal. Lorie is making sandwiches of a few varieties and each of us can bring chips, fruit, veggies or drinks to share.

We look forward to being church together this weekend!
Blessings,
Rev. Anna
