The Creation Care Fair: Activities & Classes

9:45 a.m.  Adult Class Solar Power: A Faithful Response for Church and Home (Room 112)
Bill Maloney from St. Eugene’s Catholic Church will talk about solar power for your home and our church. Before Bill launched a campaign to put 100 solar panels on St. Eugene’s roof, he put solar on his own roof so he would know that it worked! Learn what is involved, how it works, and questions to ask about it for your home and our church.

9:45 a.m.  All are welcome– especially K-5th and their families!  (Fellowship Hall)
We will be making God’s creatures to hang on a mountain landscape mural, learning about the power of the sun and the wind through various activities, and measuring the amount of energy required to light different bulbs.  Exhibits will be set up in and outside the Wallace Foyer about composting, recycling, energy efficiency & solar energy.  We will also have a model ‘Tiny House’ with the Beloved Community Tiny House Village.  And…an electric car will be in the circular driveway for you to experience!

Walking the Path: 5:30 p.m.—7:30 p.m.
Labyrinth walk at 4:15, at the Sacred Garden/Labyrinth of First Baptist Church
The Creation Care Alliance Earth Day Vigil is a celebration of God’s wondrous creation, and a call to action to care for it during a time when it is in peril. The theme is “Walking the Path” and will include interactive and contemplative practices, music, poetry and stories from a variety of faith traditions. People of all faiths are welcome.
