Greening Faith Community Conference

April 11th, 2010 by Zachary Piso Leave a reply »

Students are provided free registration for the Green Faith Workshop, and will be provided a complementary local foods lunch.

Sponsored by Allegheny College, in partnership with Stone United Methodist, Meadville Unitarian Universalist, and First Presbyterian Churches (directions and parking information to follow).

Workshops will include options for:

  • Clergy and laity, with a special track for clergy
  • People of all ages (youth are welcome to join at any time and remain for a service opportunity in the afternoon). Allegheny students are invited to attend at no cost. Registration is still required in advance so we know how many meals are needed.
  • Congregations that are already involved in environmental work, who want to step up to the next level, or congregations that are just getting started.

Continuing Education for Pastors: Clergy may receive 5 contact hours (1/2 CEU) for attending the workshop, and a full CEU if they also complete a reading assignment. Contact Rev. Dr. Jane Ellen Nickell at (814-332-2800 or jnickell@allegheny.edu).

Youth Groups: If interested in afternoon interfaith service project, contact Kristin Schroeder (814-853-3256 or kristin.erin.schroeder@gmail.com). For General Information, contact Allegheny College Office of Religious Life (814-332-2800 or barmstro@allegheny.edu).

Events begin at 9:30, with workshops at 10:00. A complementary local foods lunch will be provided at 12:30, and guests are encouraged to stay for an Earth Day service in Diamond Park and hands-on service opportunities throughout the afternoon.
