St. Paul celebrates Earth Month

Mission | April 6, 2018

The psalmist inspires St. Paul spirit and action: “The earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof.” That’s Psalm 24:1. A 24/1 church cherishes and cares for God’s creation.

We live on a pinpoint of Earth in Davenport, Iowa. We’re mindful that God’s hand places us on this beautiful and fragile planet – and so the St. Paul Environmental Team leads us as we make intentional choices in daily life. This month’s activities include:

▶ Picking up litter in the St. Paul neighborhood. The Make It Yours Neighborhood Cleanup is Saturday, April 20, 10 a.m.-12 noon.

▶ Growing mindfulness about the environment. Paddle to the Amazon, a presentation by Dana Starkell of Bettendorf, will be Sunday, April 22, 10:45-11:30 a.m. in the Chapel.

▶ Digging into the earth to grow food for others. The first planting of the St. Paul Garden is Saturday, April 27, 10 a.m.-12 noon.
