Earth Day and Pollinator Liturgies
Though the earth and its wondrous interweavings of the myriad faces of God are always before our eyes at Grace, the church will formally celebrate Earth Day at both the 8 a.m. and 10:45 a.m. services on Sunday, April 22 nd . The sermon and singing on this day will reflect God's charge to care for all of creation. After the 10:45 am service, everyone is invited to gather in the courtyard for a brief pollinator liturgy, from which you can take home a seedling to plant in your yard to attract and nourish bees and butterflies.
