On Sunday, Feb. 21, 2021, First Congregational Church of Westfield will sponsor its annual “Souper Sunday” event to its congregation and the public following the morning’s worship service. Due to the current health crisis, the event will take place virtually at approximately 11:15 a.m. as a Zoom webinar.

We are all aware that our environment and climate change are major issues globally. Many of us understand that we can “think globally and act locally,” yet we may not know what to do or how to do it. As a result, FCC of Westfield will sponsor a presentation by Heather Fenyk, founder of Lower Raritan Watershed Partnership (LRWP, whose mission is to restore, enhance, conserve, the natural resources of the Lower Raritan Watershed through science-based stewardship, education and innovation. Key goals of the organization include:

… to inspire environmental appreciation and stewardship through staging nature centered activities;
