Date: Friday 22 April 2016
Earth Day is on Friday, April 22 this year. As Christians, we know that every day is an opportunity to care for God’s good earth. SCPC’s Sustainability Circle is doing all sorts of good things helping this church in caring for God’s creation. We are a certified PC(USA) Earth Care Congregation, being a church that cares for God’s good earth in the ways we worship, educate, do mission/outreach, and care for our own building/property. We are also a 2016 Green Business Partner of Centre County.
SCPC will be celebrating Creation Care on Sunday, April 24. In worship and Adult Education, we will praise God’s goodness and consider ways in which we can continue to care well for God’s amazing and delightful gift of creation. Join us in learning, inspiring, and caring.
