On April 1 the UCC launched Mission4/1Earth.

1 million hours of Earth care, planting 100,000 trees and writing 100,000 letters of environmental advocacy. AtFirst UCC, we will be doing our part.  We will plant 450 trees at the River Bend Nature Center May 4, and we wrote letters after worship April 21.

The congregation is also invited to read and discuss the book Eaarth by Bill McKibben. Please click on the link to sign up for a discussion group and to share a time that works for you.  In the adult forum adn during WFF we’ll watch the movie The Hungry Tide and talk about what other churches are doing to care for the Earth, and we’ll ask how God is calling First UCC to care for Creation.

Write down the hours you spend caring for creation from April 1 – May 19.  At the end of Eastertide we will add them up and send them in to help the UCC reach its goal!
