Celebrate taking care of our planet Earth!
Saturday, September 23rd from 1-3pm there will be a Fall Festival where families can come to learn how to be better stewards and also be inspired together in order to limit our impact on the planet. This festival will be an Earth Day type of celebration and a great opportunity to show your children that you care of the future of the earth. There will be stations of activities (recycle relay, solar pizza oven, climate ribbon project, etc) and tables with information, including Urban Forest Friends, Tri City Ecology Center and the Fremont Sustainability Manager, in addition to others. There will be seasonal produce to sample and a bake sale with minimal cost (please bring change).
While this free event is aimed at elementary aged children and their families, all ages are welcome to attend!
After the festival is over Mission Peak UU is hosting an interfaith event.
Saturday, September 23rd from 3-4pm there will be a special service called a Ritual of Balance for Autumn Equinox. This service will feature a welcome from Rev Greg and then be co-led by Ariel and a group of leaders from TCIC. There will be poetry and song, along with readings and a special time of meditation, a space to grieve climate change and the precarious place our planet now finds itself. Those in attendance will be given a seed to plant and the opportunity to share seasonal fruits with our interfaith community. Please consider attending! This service is now a quarterly event, held on or near the solstice and equinoxes. Watch for the next one around the time of the winter solstice, Dec 21st at a TCIC congregation.
