Give it up for the Earth is a campaign during Lent to raise awareness about climate change. As Christians, God calls us to love and care for all of creation. So, for 40 days, we are invited to make changes in our own lives to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions. We can also send a postcard to the federal government calling on them to do more to address this issue. More information, and postcards, are available at the Global Partners table during Coffee Hour.
Coffee Hour Hosts Needed – Sign up sheet is on the bulletin board! This is a great way for you/family/friends to get involved and meet people. It’s easy. Coffee is made for you and you just need to refill and clean up after the service!
