Mission 4/1 Earth . . . 50 Great Days!
We are joining with hundreds of other UCC congregations around the country in the time between Easter and Pentecost – 50 days – to think about and work on issues relating to the care of the earth. In our worship we will include materials to help us learn about “mother earth,” and there will be a number of stunning video reminders of the beauty and wonder of the creation around us, around the world.
Mission 4/1 Earth is a shared resurrection witness for Planet Earth during 50 great days of greening up, powering down, and shouting out for the environment! It’s about boldly living Jesus' let-your-light-shine proclamation in the Sermon on the Mount: “That they may see your good works” . . . . an opportunity to live out our faith — in unity, as one church — for the sake of our fragile planet Earth.
We are invited to join with the other churches of the UCC to:
• Collectively offer more than ONE MILLION HOURS of engaged earth care, including clean up, advocacy, education, and behavioral changes that will impact the environment.
• Collectively plant more than 100,000 TREES locally and globally in partnership with the National Arbor Day Foundation and the UCC's denominational partners around the world.
• Collectively write and send more than 100,000 ADVOCACY LETTERS on environmental concerns to elected officials and local and national newspapers.
How can we at FCC – in our facilities and in our homes – take better care of the planet for ourselves, and for our children’s children. Be thinking about how you can join in the effort! You can find a Mission 4/1 Earth Facebook page where you can read what churches around the country are doing.
