On September 11, 2022, the Creation Care & Climate Justice Working Group is hosting an art event, And It Was Good after worship. The event invites and encourages the entire congregation of members and friends of the First Pres community to take a moment to intentionally engage with nature and create a tangible expression of the blessing they received during that experience.

Invitation to the Entire First Pres Community  To Participate – All Ages Welcome! Submissions needed by August 22. 

We invite everyone to be an integral part of this art event. To make a submission, all you need to do is take a few moments to sit or walk outside while intentionally focusing on the natural wonders that God blesses you with during that time. You can do this alone or with a friend or as a family. Then, either take a photo, make a sketch, or even write a short poem that flows from that experience.

Send your submissions to Amanda Lucas at [email protected] by August 12. It will be part of a collaborative work. “A walk is a great prayer.” –Anne Lamott

Cookies and Cupcakes for Creation Care

We know art comes in many forms, so another way to contribute to the event and make it extra festive is through cooking. On September 11, bring cookies or cupcakes to share and show love for creation care!
