Join the UCC Southern Conference's Creation Justice Network for
"Biscuits and Popcorn: A Climate Mobilization Film Festival," 
Saturday, February 29 from 9:00 a.m. until noon 
at Elon Community Church UCC (carpool with Gary Smith)

Thirteen presenters* representing 5 congregations and 8 NC faith-based environmental organizations, will be offering 5-minute film and slide presentations on Creation justice initiatives**

The national United Church of Christ's Council for Climate Justice has issued "A Kairos Call
to Action" calling for churches to address climate and inequality by developing 10-year
mobilization plans to meet these crises. In this new decade, get our congregation ready to
answer the call to of Climate Change and Creation justice.

So -- come on! Eat, watch, learn, fellowship, and discover new ways to engage our church and our community in love of, and justice for, all of God's Creation.

I’m going and would love to have riders join me!
