The Chesapeake Bay is a 'sink' for plastic pollution, and research conducted by NOAA nearly a decade prior has concluded nearly 98% of all water samples from the Chesapeake contain microplastics! How can congregations activate their faith to take care of the world that God created and has entrusted to humankind?

This month we will show a screening of "A Plastic Wave" and learn about meaningful ways in which we can reduce our waste. We will also have a guest speaker from Earth Force to walk us through environmental civics action your congregation can lead to create the change we want to see!
