Touch the Grass, Hug a Tree

Don’t you love the springtime? The birds, the grass, the trees, the wind… ok, the wind is sometimes a bit much here in Wyoming, but join us for a worship in appreciation of the Earth and an invitation to connect with it. Today, we offer the reminder that simply to be one with the natural world is a powerful medicine for weary spirits.
Preacher – Reverend Elizabeth Mount All are welcome!

Living Generously   
It’s pledge season again! Letters went out March 16 and should be in your hands by now. We invite you to pledge to the church. Your financial contributions are crucial to all aspects of church life and ministry. 

New this year: we are moving to evergreen pledging. This means that unless you opt out, this will be the last pledge form you will see for some time. Please carefully review what you have been pledging, consider the information provided in the letter and your circumstances, and return the form. From there, we will use this number each year unless you tell us otherwise. You may revise your pledge at any time. We do encourage automatic deduction pledging as well, and there are instructions on the website for that.
Didn’t get one? You can find one  here.

If you have questions, please contact Camellia El-Antably


 Children’s RE Classes happen on the 2nd and 4th Sunday of each month and are sized best for ages 5-12, though children older or younger are welcome to attend and “try on” the programming as helpers or with a parent assisting them. Teachers will take the children downstairs to the Rainbow Room as the worship service closes at 11am and the lesson runs until 11:45am.

Parents, please make sure your cell phone number is on the Attendance Sheet with our RE Team so they can contact you if your children need you, then feel welcome to enjoy our coffee hour, find a book in the library, take some time to meditate, or speak with our minister while your children are engaged with programming.

On Sunday, April 23, our RE kids will be celebrating Earth Day by planting pansies and other plants provided by Birgitt Paul. We are looking forward to welcoming spring with this fun activity! If you have a spade or trowel you can lend us for this project, please bring it with you this Sunday. We will all enjoy the efforts of our RE students!
