Copy of Creation Care Fair: Schedule Update

This fair is a multigenerational event designed to educate and entertain people of all ages
about reducing waste and moving toward zero waste.

9:45 a.m. Sunday School classes for pre-K through fifth grade will not meet as usual.

Instead children and their parent(s)/grandparent(s) are invited to the Fellowship Hall where children will make and add creatures to a mural of God’s creation, participate in a recycling relay, make new candles from old, mix-up a non-toxic cleaner, create a poster of recyclable and compostable items, tie-dye coffee filters and visit the Recycling Education Vehicle outside.

Adults and parents who aren’t having fun with children are invited to Cam Murchison’s presentation, “The Fire This Time: Biblical and Theological Grounding for Responding to Climate Disruption,” in Room 213.
Exhibits for additional information will be set up in the Wallace Foyer. Sundance Solar will have staff ready to talk about solar installations and rebates for the church and residences. Asheville Greenworks will provide information on recycling and composting, and the Creation Care Team will offer ways to get involved.

After a light lunch, two workshops will discuss practical ways to moving toward zero waste. Dargan Gilmore from Raleigh will speak about how families can reduce waste at home and have fun doing it. Beatrice Nathan from Cool Communities will expand that discussion to include reducing energy and water use, driving and food consumption from a workbook titled, “Low Carbon Diet.” Another option is Asheville GreenWorks’ Christine Brown’s workshop that will cover reducing waste by home recycling and home composting.

As Christians, we have a responsibility to take care of the earth that God has entrusted to us. Join the Creation Care Team on April 29 to learn and practice basic ways of being good stewards. Contact Jane Laping 828-277-7342 for more information. To share your interest with Creation Care, complete this quick survey.
