    • Sites will include Leopold Elementary School, Mendota Elementary School, Lacy Gardens, WillowPointe VBS, Badger Rock Middle School, Porchlight, and our very own Sugar River UMC
    • Leopold, Mendota, Lacy, and Badger Rock will all have some form of community garden projects, which include harvesting, weeding and planting. Porchlight will be two separate sites of doing demos and rebuilds of decks. We will continue to insulate and begin hanging drywall on the space behind the sanctuary.
  • Congregation
    • The Congregation is invited to any and all activities Next Step takes a part in. The easiest way to get connecting is to come for dinner and/or evening worship, which will start at 5:30 and 6:45, respectively. Community members are also welcome to join students and staff on projects in the community. If anyone is interested, contact Tommy Olmsted at 507-440-5124 or tmolmsted@wisc.edu
