Elaine Piraino-Holevoet from United Church on the Green in New Haven, Connecticut, is helping lead a small group of members working to reinvigorate the church's dormant Environmental Task Force. United Church on the Green held two Earth Day Events. They observed Earth Sunday on April 20th with an environmentally themed worship service. After the service, lunch was provided by a local vegetarian restaurant, and a variety of Earth Day programs allowed attendees to participate and learn about environmental issues.
Following this event, the church screened RENEWAL on Earth Day, April 22nd, at 7 pm for the wider community with discussion afterwards. Elaine hopes hopes these viewings of RENEWAL will spur the members of the audience to take action in a variety of ways. We look forward to future reports of developments at United Church on the Green.
