From the Penn Central Conference of the United Church of Christ (http://www.pccucc.org):
Many people in our community will be interested in congregations and faith groups that show they care for our earth and are being proactive about environmental mission and advocacy programs. Going green can also help religious organizations save money.
Penn Central Conference of the United Church of Christ is sponsoring in conjunction with the leaders from the Interfaith Coalition for the Environment (ICE) Growing Stronger Churches: Going Green on Saturday, March 10 from 9:30am-3:00pm at Colonial Park UCC, 5000 Devonshire Road, Harrisburg. People from all faith groups are encouraged to attend.
Parts of the film “Renewal,” will be viewed. This offers for the first time stories of the emerging movement of religious environmentalism across the US from all faith groups. We’ll also facilitate a roundtable discussion on what you are doing now, what would you like to do in your congregations and how to get started. In the afternoon, attendees will be able to attend workshops on “Taking Steps to Make Your Property Green,” “What Churches can do to Care for Creation,” “Studies and Curricula on Eco-Justice” and “Why and How Your faith organization can be a Leaderin Public Advocacy for Our Environment.”
Cost which includes lunch is $10 per person. For more information or to register, contact Brenda Waleff at the United Church of Christ Conference Office 717-652-1560 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
