Support Initiatives from the Creation Care Subcommittee
PLASTIC FREE JULY: We have seen photos of beaches strewn with plastic trash, and we have heard about the 8 million tons of plastic that go into the ocean every year. Here is something we can do about it, together! We can make a commitment to a Plastic Free July. Commit to either cut down on single-use plastic, or eliminate certain plastic items (grocery bags, water bottles, straws, for example), or you can go all the way and commit to eliminating all plastic. As a church, we can make a difference! If you have any questions or want to sign up to participate, contact Cris Rivera or call 919-225-4228.
The Creation Care Subcommittee of the Stewardship Committee is also encouraging members of the congregation to sign a petition that was endorsed by the Session at their June 22 meeting in support of Mayor Steve Schewel’s efforts to negotiate a better Operating Agreement for the City with Duke Energy to help Durham transition to 100% renewable energy. The negotiations begin this summer and having strong community support will strengthen the City’s position. You can See the petition for more details and sign on.
