"Mission 4/1 Earth: 50 Great Days" is about living boldly Jesus' let-your-light-shine proclamation in the Sermon on the Mount: "That they may see your good works!" It is an opportunity to live out our faith - in unity, as one church - for the sake of our fragile planet Earth.
Launching on Easter Morning, April 1, 2013, and continuing through the 50 days of eastertide, United Church of Christ congregations, colleges, seminaries, camps and outdoor ministries, and health and human service agencies, will join together in a shared mission campaign to:
Mission 4/1 Earth links together four significant events - Easter (March 31), Earth Day (April 22), Arbor Day (April 26) and Pentecost (May 19) - for a sustained, aggressive and collective mission opportunity for the entire United Church of Christ. Together, we will inspire and aspire to what we can accomplish as ONE CHURCH.
