Grossnickle Church of the Brethren

Continuing the work of Jesus.  Peacefully.  Simply.  Together.

Field of Hope

The Field of Hope Growing Project is a joint effort of ten local churches and is affiliated with Growing Hope Globally (formerly Foods Resource Bank), an international organization whose mission is to alleviate world hunger by globally connecting local communities through agriculture. 

Each year, in support of the Field of Hope Growing Project, members of the Churches donate their land, time, labor and money to help eradicate hunger through sustainable programs that grow lasting solutions to hunger.  

2023 marks our seventeenth year of working toward helping our brothers and sisters rise out of hunger and poverty. This year we will be supporting a program in Tanzania that works with women farmers to improve their agricultural outputs and teaches them best business practices for their farms. 

We begin each Growing Project in the spring with the Blessing of the Seed service and finish in September or October with the Harvest Celebration.   This year, our Blessing of the Seed will be held on Sunday, June 11 at 3:00 pm and the Harvest Festival will be on Sunday, Oct. 8 at 2:30 pm.

We welcome your participation and support!  Please contact Grossnickle Church of the Brethren's Church Office, 301-293-9516, or Patty Hurwitz at 301-471-7810 for more information.
