Welcome Back to Galilee!

Galilee Green

The pandemic nudged us into focusing on creating outdoor gathering spaces for our community.  In addition to our large community garden and our peace garden, we added an outdoor labyrinth, an urban orchard, native plant beds  seating areas, AND new this spring are hydroponic gardens for neighbors to gather--right on our front yard! 

Please join us in making Galilee Green a place of welcome, beauty, and respite for our community.  

Galilee Greeters

Many new folks stop in for services at Galilee. Some of them are newcomers to this country while others are hungry or experiencing homelessness. Galilee Greeters are needed to cover our front desk to welcome our visitors. These are the first faces you see when you enter the front door. They are kind, gracious and dedicated. If you are looking to help a few hours Monday - Thursday or know someone who is, please email us using the button below




Come and share God's welcoming of our neighbors.
