After Service: Mission 4/1 Earth ends this Sunday! To celebrate this, we have the chance to total up our engaged earth care hours, trees planted, and number of letters of advocacy written (or emailed) during these past 50 days of Easter. Please give your best estimate on this card that will be handed out at the beginning of the service by Consumption and Justice Team members and placed in the offering plate as a symbolic sign of our stewardship.
This Sunday we are collecting our special Pentecost Offering to support the ongoing missional work of both the United Church of Christ and the Presbyterian Church (USA). Please see the inserted flyer and envelope.
Our Earth Potluck this Sunday in Bates Hall! In honor of Church of the Covenant's efforts around Mission 4/1 Earth: we are trying something new, and asking that our Potluck consist of dishes with no animal ingredients (vegan). Although it is not necessary to eat a completely plant-based diet to honor the Earth or be good stewards, we want to celebrate that eating lower on the food chain is a good response to a food production system that causes environmental harm, not to mention pain to animals. Please offer us your presence even if you didn’t bring a dish!
Deacons Meeting this sunday following Potluck in Williams Library.
Film Screening: Adult Ed this sunday: following the Earth Potluck, please join us in Bates Hall for a 40 minute film called “Do the Math”, about the 350.org Divestment from Fossil Fuels movement. We will have a second video presentation about divestment next Sunday May 26 for Adult Ed. Please join us!
