Fracking 101 March 30

Fracking 101

Thu, Mar 30 | 7:30-9:00pm | Heritage Room. 

Sustainability Seekers & Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom is sponsoring a talk entitled Fracking 101. Fracking is the process of injecting liquid at high pressure into subterranean rocks, boreholes, etc., so as to force open existing fissures and extract oil or gas. Fracking has lowered the domestic price of oil. However, it has a poor environmental impact. Environmentalists say potentially carcinogenic chemicals used may escape and contaminate groundwater and the air around the fracking site. Fracking is causing earth tremors. Our speaker, Connie Gray, will share her experiences living near fracking sites and the impact on her family. Contact Joan Brannigan for more information: 314-997-7698 | joan@mac.com

We’re Here this Morning! Join Us if You’re Up to It!

We’re here and it’s LOVE Sunday around the Advent Wreath — we’d LOVE to have you here with us!  (Our snow crew is here again – after I snapped this photo!)
 
If you’re adventurous, steady and patient if you need to thaw your vehicle — COME ON!
WORSHIP 9:30am Traditional and/or 11:00am Informal – the fourth Sunday of Advent! Join us as we gather around the Advent Wreath and re-light the candles of hope, peace and joy…adding a new flame for love.
Our Traditional Service will highlight Isaiah 40:1-5 and Luke 1:46-55 with a sermon entitled Road Construction as we continue to prepare the way for the Holy One – and for being holy ourselves. We will sing more Advent Carols (no Christmas Carols yet!) – Come, Thou Long-Expected Jesus, The Angel Gabriel From Heaven Came and People, Look East.
Our Informal Service will also start at the Advent Wreath then head into an original, never before seen Christmas Pageant – written by one of our PUCC Youth: Blake Lyons! Come support our children, youth and Voices of Grace.
