Earth Month at St. John!

April 22 has been celebrated as Earth Day since 1970. At St. John, we recognize the importance of caring for creation and our connectedness to the systems that sustain life, so this year we are going beyond a celebration of Earth Day and hosting a whole month full of opportunities to learn about, care for, and celebrate creation.


Sunday, April 14th, 11:15 am (after 10:00 service): Help End Hunger - Seed Starting

Hunger is a global problem, including people in our own community. That is why St. John participates in the CROP Hunger Walk, and why we grow God's Garden. Help us get plants started for God's Garden by sowing some seeds to grow indoors, so they are ready for transplant after the frost. Seeds and containers will also be available so you can start some seeds at home.



Wednesday, April 17th, 6:00 pm: Common Ground Movie Screening

What if a simple solution could balance our climate, replenish our freshwater supplies, and feed the world? Join us to watch Common Ground, an exciting documentary about a powerful solution to climate change. Winner of the Tribeca Film Festival, Common Ground provides hope for future generations with concrete ways to fix a broken system. The film explores how regenerative agriculture can help heal the soil, our health, and the planet. This film is not yet available widely, so see it with us! 87 minutes. Screening made possible by the organization Interfaith Power and Light.

Stay for a short discussion after the film to learn how to take faithful action!
