Making Earth Mandalas as Earth Prayers
A 2020 Fall Earth Day Action for Celebrating and Blessing our Planet
The Ecology Action Committee invites you to join in as Lori Sweet guides us through a special three-part Fall Earth Day interactive activity for all ages.
1. PDF directions for creating earth mandalas are at right. Click on the "Earth Mandalas" button.
2. TO REGISTER
NOTE: Even if you are unable to attend the first ZOOM meeting you still can print out the directions and participate. The directions basically are self-explanatory and if you have any questions you can contact Lori or Elizabeth.
Likewise, anyone is welcome to join us for the second Zoom meeting to listen in and see the earth mandala images that were created. We plan to share the slideshow with the larger community via the website and Facebook page once completed so more folks can see these works of earth art!
Market Square Awarded Designation as Earth Care Congregation
Under the leadership of Elizabeth Terry and the entire Ecology Action Committee, Market Square Presbyterian Church received—two years in a row—the Earth Care Congregation certification on Earth Sundays, 2018 and 2019.
This designation is given by the Presbyterian Church (USA) in recognition of congregations that pledge to and work to reduce the impact on the environment.
Among the things that you may have noticed are eco-friendly items such as "real" coffee mugs. Or you may have seen the new three part trash receptacles—for paper, recyclables and trash
Other efforts are on-going--using more eco-friendly lighting. Making the energy use to heat and cool the church less energy consuming.
Congratulations to all who helped educate our church on this most critical issue.
