Serving Our Community

Hope Garden

Hope GardenOur Hope Garden has been growing vegetables for food banks for several years and now serves the West Muskoka Food Bank which operates out of our church. The garden, facing the highway, was first suggested by congregation  members Terry and Marilyn Chute. Yoke Chan, right, a Toronto landscape gardener and owner of a heritage stone church in Bala, designed our original Hope Garden and has been in charge of it ever since then.

Making a joyful noise unto the Lord

Singing with migrant workersSinging has been an important part of every service since First Muskoka Congregational Church began in December, 1988. Choir director Edna Gostick was holding an impromptu sing-along with Jamaican migrant workers from the nearby Red Leaves resort when this photograph was taken in the church’s downstairs fellowship area a few years ago.
