Earth Day Tips from Earth Care 
Today is Earth Day and to honor it, please consider one of the following:
1) Choose to reuse! Nearly 2 billion shopping bags are used and discarded every year in the US and all that trash adds up!
2) Volunteer on Impact Sunday 4/28 with our Earthcare ministry - dedicated to becoming active in environmental issues
3) Stop in on one of our monthly meetings - held on the 2nd Sunday of the month, between services, at 9:45-10:15 am (beginning 6/9
4) Like our EarthCare page at FUMC on Facebook
