Community Partnerships


Monroe Street Community Garden

This large area of raised vegetable beds provides fresh vegetables to our neighbors and our congregation. The community garden is also a teaching tool showing persons of all ages the possibilities of urban farming and self-sustaining agriculture.

Clean Your Streams

Clean Your Streams is an annual river bank clean-up sponsored by Partners for Clean Streams as part of the International Coastal Clean-up. Monroe Street Church continues to be a kickoff host for this project, serving breakfast to volunteers and providing financial support and organizational leadership to the event. Each year volunteers remove tons of litter and debris from the Ottawa River, Swan Creek, and the Maumee River.
