On Sunday, September 15, Calvary Lutheran Church in Cranford will host a Climate Fair from 10:30am-12:30pm. The fair will focus on “Taking Care of God’s Earth” and will feature ways everyone can take action to protect the planet on which we live. Activities planned include building compost boxes and hands-on learning activities for young children. Calvary will also give a reusable shopping bag to everyone who turns in 25 plastic shopping bags for recycling.
As part of the Climate Fair, Calvary will also hold a used shoe collection. The church hopes to collect 25,000 pairs of shoes for Soles4Souls, a non-profit which fights global poverty. All donations of wearable used and new shoes are appreciated and can be dropped off Sunday, September 15 between the hours of 10:30am and 12:30pm.
The Climate Fair is Calvary’s way of engaging in service work on “God’s Work, Our Hands” Sunday, a day set aside by the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) for members to make a positive change in their community and share God’s love. Calvary is just one of nearly 9,100 congregations participating in this special day of service.
