When we say, "our farm is your farm," we mean it! We are a missional church. That means we do not exist as a church for ourselves. We exist to be part of God’s work in the world. We focus on serving and giving of ourselves, seeking to understand God’s dream for the world and working to help make that dream become reality.Often it is "the little children who lead" us. In the case of the farm, it was an industrious Eagle Scout who led us to establish Englewood Church Community Garden in the spring of 2015.Since that time, the garden has grown by leaps and bounds to become a bona fide farm, including a budding orchard, several more beds of fruits, beans, potatoes, and vegetables, a terraced pumpkin patch, and a chicken tractor!If you've never seen one, please visit us and introduce yourself to the hens. They help us supply visitors to the food pantry with a free, organic source of protein. Everything we grow at Englewood Community Farm is given away through our food pantry, members, and community partners.To learn more about ways to be involved, please find Englewood Community Farm on Facebook: @EnglewoodCommunityFarmLearn More

For over thirty years Englewood has provided a food pantry to feed hungry people in the Northland. Over the past several years, this ministry has grown exponentiallyWe are a small congregation,with less than 40 people in services on an average Sunday.Yet the generosity and lovingkindnessof our church membersreaches so many people in need. For the past four years, Englewood has served over 2,000 individuals annually through the food pantry.We are grateful to all of the individuals and organizations who contribute to this vital ministry throughout the year.In the first half of this year, we provided food for over 300 families comprised of 548 adults and 413 children, for a total of 961 people. We absolutely could not do this without the support of invaluable community partners and our food pantry volunteers.Thank you to all who help with this important ministry!
All are welcome at Englewood. We strive to offer the same invitation Christ offered: “Whosoever will may come.”We welcome all who wish to join us on our faith journey as we embrace diversity, including gender, age, ethnicity, sexual orientation, and socio-economic status. We seek to honor and serve the God we see revealed through Jesus Christ and we strive for heartfelt worship that connects us personally and intimately to God, the creator and source of all that is. We are not afraid of questions and work hard to think deeply about our faith and what it means to be a follower of Jesus in our culture and time. We are devoted to the Biblical principle that every member is a minister and we offer meaningful opportunities for Christian formation, aimed at identifying one’s unique God-given gifts, and using them to follow Christ’s model of helping others and being a caretaker of God’s creation. Women are affirmed and supported in all roles within the congregation, including ordination and preaching. Our members are involved in leadership at all levels of our church life. Women, men, and youth participate equally, alongside our professional leaders, in planning and carrying out the ministries of Englewood.Learn More
