Lenten Series: Caring for the Planet

 Each Sunday we affirm that God calls us to “care for creation,” and the climate envelopes all of God’s good world. Over four the Sundays of March 10, 17, 24, and 31, this Adult Faith Formation/Public Issues Lenten Series will look at different aspects of climate change along with theological readings on why this is so important for Christians.

  • Should We Change, Can We Change, and Will We Change?

  • What We Can Do - As Individuals and Groups

Meets 11:30-12:30 in the Oscar Mayer Room. RSVP: jcarlson@spucc.org for weekly readings.
