Earth Day 2021: Restoring the Earth

Our focus this year will be on our personal responsibility to restore our planet by starting in our own communities.

On Sunday, April 18, both services will be dedicated to our observation of Earth Day, and we will be challenged to take one step more to restore the planet beginning in our own backyards. As Christians we are commissioned to care for everything in the world.

We will also have five opportunities to learn about specific areas where we can commit to restoration. Five topics will be presented by members of our Mission, Service & Justice Team. Attendees will be given information about these topics, focusing on ways we each can commit to help restore and preserve our weary planet.

In the desert it is sometimes hard to find a cool, safe place to rest, a place where your spirit is renewed by community and refreshed by living waters. We are glad you have found your way here to receive our extravagant welcome.

We hope you will come to know us as a vibrant, relaxed and diverse community of faith, and as a church that gathers to nurture, share and celebrate the wonder of life.

For at The Good Shepherd we are all spiritual seekers who find joy in community; meaning in living faith-filled lives; purpose in seeking to promote justice and compassion; and direction in following in the way of Jesus.
