Help us bring glass recycling to Provo!

Provo Community UCC is committed to helping the environment and as part of that we are trying to get our church established as a glass recycling site.

Here is how you can can help:
- Collect all the bottles, jars and other glass items you are using at home
- Do not throw them away, every beer bottle counts!
- Bring them to Household Hazardous Waste Collection Day on Saturday, April 13, 2013 9 am to 3 pm behind Provo Towne Centre Mall
- If you can’t make it there bring them to our church before then, we will take them for you

If that day is a success for glass recycling, meaning we are producing enough volume, the South Utah Valley Solid Waste District will consider using our church as a glass recycling location.

Mission 4/1 Earth from the United Church of Christ

During the month of April Provo Community United Church of Christ will join the whole UCC on a journey of environmental stewardship. We will do our best to help reach the national goals:
- Serve 1 million earth care hours
- Plant 100,000 trees
- Send 100,000 advocacy letters

Here is what we are going to do locally:
The culmination of our efforts will be a celebration of Earth Sunday on April 21 when the sermon and children’s church will all be going totally green.
During the course of the month we will try and get our church established as a recycling site.
As an opportunity of adult education on Thursday nights from 6-7 there will be two evenings (April 4 & 11) of watching the movie Brother Sun, Sister Moon (1972) followed by a Bible Study on environmental stewardship (April 18).
We will be urging and helping people to write advocacy letters in church every Sunday and in the wider community during Art Stroll.

Our youth group will be contributing to 1 million hours of earth care!
How do you want to get involved?
One million hours of active earth care is one BIG goal, and surpassing that impressive goal is going to take a concerted effort on the part of every UCC person. However, it’s doable! The important thing to remember is that there is NO one way to contribute active earth-care hours, but it will involve intentionality as individuals and as a congregation. Here are some suggestions:
A. Ride a bike, carpool or use public transportation instead of driving alone in a car.
B. Read a book or watch a documentary about the environment.
C. Plant and tend an organic garden – all that weeding and watering time adds up quickly!
D. Prepare a sermon, lead a Bible study, plan or attend an earth-care-focused worship service.
E. Write advocacy letters (which counts in time AND in letters sent!).
F. Install energy-efficient light bulbs or appliances.
G. Attend an Earth Day rally.
