For Earth Month 2022, we'll be flying our Earth Tree flag on the corner of the 1832 Chapel.

"Earth Matters" video discussions We've learned a lot in the last two years about how pandemic can effect best laid plans. We learned how to move our 2020 in-person soup & climate-concern movie nights at the church to online viewing and discussions. That led to celebrating Earth Month 2021 with a series of short videos for discussion in our weekly Zoom Fellowships. Now we're back to in-person Fellowship (and even snacks!) but still like the Zoom format sometimes. To celebrate Earth Month 2022, we'll combine much of what we've learned: you're invited to Zoom Fellowship on April 10 and May 8 (Mother's Day). We hope to talk a bit about the following videos and webinars. Please register for the Zoom offereings or check out the Naadam videos before these Sundays.
