On Sunday, April 25, the Rev. Jeremiah Kalendae , along with Worship Associate Alison Kendall, will discuss how we face the future and the challenges of addressing the Climate Crisis during our Sunday service. “Earth Sunday: A Spring for Change” will stream at 10:00 am on Facebook and YouTube.
Climate change didn’t start overnight, and it won’t end overnight.
