Welcome to Peace United Church of Christ | An Open and Affirming Church in the St. Louis Area!
Beginning on May 5, we will begin a time of reflection in worship together on the condition of the planet we live on. What have we done to this beautiful creation? What is the state of things now? How are we called to respond?
May 5: In the Beginning!
May 12: What Have We Done?
May 19: Where Are We Now?
May 26: Where Do We Go From Here?
Each week during this time of Easter we will provide specific opportunities to be better stewards of the earth. You will be invited to take pictures while doing these things and then send them to the church office (firstname.lastname@example.org) to be used in our final worship service on May 26th when we talk about “Where Do We Go From Here?”.
During the month of May, we will have paperless (or almost paperless) worship services. Yes, that means no bulletin. Our “How Shall we Do God’s work in the World” publication will be found, as it is each Sunday, on the bulletin board in the Narthex, but there will be no copies to take home with you. All the activities of the church will be relayed electronically to you each week in News & Notes.
Let’s give it a try and in doing so, save a tree and become better stewards of our home – the earth.
We hope you will join us on the journey towards an Earth Resurrection.
The Climate Crisis and the Church. During Fireside Conversations (9:45AM) on April 28 and May 12, 19 and 26, we will discuss the climate crisis and the role of the church in responding to the climate crisis. We will draw on multiple resources, including the thought provoking 2018 book Climate Church, Climate World by Jim Antal. Rev. Antal served as UCC Conference Minister in Massachusetts 2006-2018 and is currently Special Advisor on Climate Justice to the General Minister and President of the United Church of Christ. Participants are not expected to have read the book.
