Nut Free Signs: As you walk through the building you may notice a few new signs posted. In an effort to be more mindful and inclusive of those within our community who have allergies, we have placed “Nut Free” signs throughout the building. There are signs in the Peaceable Kingdom, the Café, and the Preschool and Nursery hallway. What this means is any food containing peanuts and tree nuts (i.e. walnuts, almonds, pecans, and others) should not be brought into those spaces. We also want to make sure any church-wide meals (e.g. Easter Breakfast, Genesis Sunday, Advent Workshop, etc...) should be nut free. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to any of the staff.
You are invited to offer prayers during Lent in written form during worship or at other times at either station provided in the sanctuary throughout the Lenten season. Paper and pens are available on the pedestals and you are encouraged to add your prayers to the panels provided. After Lent all of our prayers will be collected and become a part of a Liturgical Arts project that will be installed later in the year.

Of the 6.3 billion tons of plastic produced around the world 9 percent has been recycled, 12 percent incinerated, and 79 percent are still with us in our streams, landfills and oceans. This Lent, the Environmental Stewardship Team invites you to tread more lightly by cutting down on your plastic use. Use the Lent reflection-action calendar to prepare for the Lent and Easter season, reflect, and to find ways to reduce our single-use plastic footprint. A plastic fast is a way to be mindful of our consumption, while creating more mindful behaviors to continue throughout the year.
