This Earth Day, Friday, April 22, we encourage our congregation to participate in a community-wide student-led march and rally in front of PA City Hall. We hope to spread the message that the move away from fossil fuels needs to be smarter and faster! The event will be a celebration of our progress and a call to action on the challenges we face. First Pres folks will march together carrying a church banner. Please join us!
