Are you interested in learning practical ways to integrate creation care into the rhythms and practices of your church community? What better way than to learn from the trials and triumphs of a church who has walked this path before us?
Join us for a free webinar, Tuesday, April 30, 12PM (EST) and hear story of the Church of the Nativity, a congregation who has made creation care central to their collective ministry. Be inspired by their successes. Learn from their failures. And come ready to engage as we think together about how to join our collective efforts to care for God’s creation.
About the Webinar:
Imagine having a pancake breakfast for your whole congregation and only creating one bag of waste. One Raleigh Episcopal congregation, Church of the Nativity, has done just that. Throughout the past few decades, Nativity has developed an increasing commitment and intentionality to find ways to care for creation. In this webinar, Carl Sigel and The Rev. Stephanie Allen will present Nativity’s journey, including the lessons learned and the successes. Creation care is a vital responsibility for our churches to address; and, Nativity’s experience can help move our efforts along. The webinar should last 45-60 minutes.
