    Intergenerational Sunday School - 10:45am in Heartland Hall // School supply list: pencils, notebooks, backpacks and….lunches! Many of us take a lunch to school or
    work, or buy fast food or convenience foods for lunch. A lot of foods use disposable packaging, which adds to the plastic pollution problem. Join us August 7th for a Sunday school class on low-effort, no-waste lunches for kids, adults, and anyone else who likes a tasty & sustainable noon meal. Part of our year-long series on Caring for Creation, this class in Heartland Hall will include a presentation by Mikki Walker and time for questions and discussion.

    We are reading Inhabiting Eden: Christians, the Bible, and the Ecological Crisis by Dr. Patricia Tull for our summer book group. In this thoughtful study, respected Old Testament scholar Patricia K. Tull explores the Scriptures for guidance on today's ecological crisis. Tull looks to the Bible for what it can tell us about our relationships, not just to the earth itself, but also to plant and animal life, to each other, to descendants who will inherit the planet from us, and to our Creator. She offers candid discussions on many current ecological problems that humans contribute to, such as the overuse of energy resources like gas and electricity, consumerism, food production systems—including land use and factory farming—and toxic waste.
