Adult Christian Formation
As the world commemorates Earth Day on April 22, it is important to explore what the Bible says about caring for the environment. Christianity and Climate Change is a four-session Sunday school offering, whose goal is to have a conversation about climate change from a Christian perspective. We will watch and discuss short videos by Dr. Katharine Hayhoe, a Christian climate scientist, and the Tearfund foundation of Scotland.
