Earth Day Worship

by | Apr 9, 2024

On April 21, First Church will celebrate “Earth Sunday” during 10:30am worship in the sanctuary.

The renewal of God’s creation each spring reminds us of our covenant to care for the Earth, our home. Join our faith community as we welcome guest preacher Rev. Emily Carroll of Shady Grove UMC, Louisiana. She will share firsthand perspectives and insights after attending the United Nations “Cop28” global climate conference, with her fellow faith leaders who are among the voices leading a movement for change and a call for environmental justice. (Check out her blog on that experience.)

Earth Day worship will also feature special music from Paul Winter’s Missa Gaia (Earth Mass) and will be followed by fellowship and eco-friendly information sharing during Community Hour in Great Hall hosted by the Earth Care Committee.

On April 21, Rev. Carroll also leads a 9:15 class open to all, highlighting her work with Green The Church, a faith-based community organization advocating for equitable solutions that affect positive environmental changes.
