Green Church: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, Rejoice! is the theme of a six-week series of classes for all ages that will begin at 9:30 a.m. Sept. 12 at Aldersgate United Methodist Church. Green Church explores what climate change means for Christians and how they can help. In it, author Rev. Rebekah Simon-Peter cites Scripture and science, weaving in personal stories of Sabbath, gardening, recycling, camping and the power of faith. She presents a challenge to consider our role in the care of creation and to help save the earth for future generations. A light continental breakfast will be provided for children (kindergarten through fifth grade) and adults. The youth class will make their own pancake breakfast. Nursery is provided for up to kindergarten age.
Rev. Judy Shook, pastor of Aldersgate, invites the community to come "explore where the longings of your soul are met by the beauty of creation, the song of your heart is met in the celebration of community, the questions of your mind are met with the wonders of the universe, the passions of your life meet the needs of the world." These classes are open to the public.
