All are welcome

HCUCC’s Earth Care made the national UCC’s news!

Another heartfelt thank you to all who participated in the special 50-day Earth care campaign with HCUCC as a part of the larger UCC’s “Mission 4/1 Earth”. While many of us routinely try to become aware of and reduce our environmental “footprints”, this campaign encouraged sharing our efforts and making them measurable so we could see the cumulative impacts of “small” actions. We are honored our efforts were prominently featured in a June 17, 2013 article at! Let’s consider this a reminder that our Earth needs ongoing care!

In addition to logging personal Earth care efforts, we also held several group events including a special interfaith Blessing of a Landfill on Earth Day, a Stream Clean-Up, and a Blue Ridge Parkway Overlook Cleanup. Among our various Mission 4/1 Earth efforts highlighted in the Article were our customized tracking cards, our tree planting locally and abroad, and the photo of our cleanup on the Blue Ridge Parkway shown below.
