Monday, April 22nd is Earth Day. The first Earth Day was celebrated in America on this date in 1970 and is credited with raising awareness of environmental issues globally. Today, over 1 billion people in 196 countries observe Earth Day each year, making it the largest civic observance in the world.
Being good stewards of God’s creation is also a social principle of the United Methodist Church, which in part states, “All creation is the Lord’s, and we are responsible for the ways in which we use and abuse it.

Earth Day serves as a good reminder that we need to be environmentally responsible all year long.

“Thank You” to Steve & Joy Santillo for hosting the church picnic on August 28. The weather, food, and fellowship were great. We were also able to make use of the canopies, which were donated over the summer. Some of our praise band members got together and provided some musical entertainment. See a few pictures below.
