RICHMOND HILL, GA – March 13, 2017 – St. Elizabeth’s Episcopal Church is gearing up to participate in the Richmond Hill Farmers Market from 2-7 p.m. every Tuesday at J.F. Gregory Park, 521 Cedar St. in Richmond Hill.
The Farmers Market runs each year from April to October and boasts a variety of vendors each week. St. Elizabeth’s encourages attendees to visit their booth to learn about the history and mission of the church as well as wider community-based programs and involvement opportunities. The church volunteers and Pastor Dr. C. Clark Hubbard also offer a prayer ministry at the market, pausing to reflect and pray with any market attendees who come by the booth and express interest.
The City of Richmond Hill’s Park and Tree Department oversees the Farmers Market. Organizers say the market aims to support the development of the local agricultural economy, which will foster stewardship of land and goodwill in the community by providing a place for vendors to sell products. Shoppers can expect to find fresh produce, eggs, dairy products, baked goods, crafts and other specialty items.
“The Farmers Market is a great opportunity for fellowship between the community and church members,” said St. Elizabeth’s Rector Dr. C. Clark Hubbard. “Supporting the community as well as our local economy is important to St. Elizabeth’s and our congregation, and we are looking forward to doing this each week at the Farmers Market.”
St. Elizabeth’s is a Bible-believing church, where Jesus is Lord and Savior and all are welcomed and loved. The church operates an acclaimed pre-school for children aged 2-4 years and an on-site thrift store, dubbed St. Elizabeth’s Attic, which is open Tuesday and Saturdays from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. The church is committed to offering bible study and Christian education programs for children, youth, and adults and is committed to building a church community. The church is located on 6.6 acres at 16491 Highway 144 in Richmond Hill.
The market is located under the covered pavilion at J.F. Gregory Park and is held rain or shine.
