Did you know that our entire area affects the health of Lake Erie? As water flows over it, it all goes down to that single body of water. As those made in the image of God to “till and to keep” the good earth, part of our spiritual calling is to care for creation, including our watersheds.
On June 19, our own Bethany Hurley, a certified watershed steward, will be leading a project to improve the watershed health from the property at our presbytery’s Camp Lambec. We will learn about the different ways in which all of us can contribute to the health of our favorite body of water and do some good work on-site.
Please contact the office or sign up in the lobby by June 12th. Bring a water bottle, work gloves, sturdy shoes, and a hat. This event is for children starting at 2nd grade, youth, and adults on June 19 @ 10am-2pm at Camp Lambec. Lunch is provided.
Wayside partners with Magee Women's Center/UPMC Hamot to provide bags of toiletries, new under garments, hard candies and an inspirational message to help women who come to the hospital after being abused or abandoned.
