Celebrate Earth Week!

We are having a couple of Earth Day celebrations at FPC Elizabethton!

We are celebrating Earth Week.

Join us Saturday at 9 am for the Carter County Streams Clean-Up!
Each spring, folks from the congregation of First Presbyterian participate in Carter County Streams Clean-up. Our church has agreed to adopt a portion of Dennis Cove as our clean-up area. We’ll meet at the covered bridge park on Saturday, April 24th at 9:00 a.m. where litter bags and gloves are distributed. Then we head to a beautiful mountain stream where we enjoy looking at wild flowers and listening to singing warblers as we collect litter along the stream bank.
On Sunday, April 25th join us for a Hike and Meditation!
On Sunday afternoon, April 25, the Peacemaking Committee will sponsor a hike and meditation. We’ll spend an afternoon celebrating Earth, looking for wildflowers, birds, butterflies and whatever else crosses our path. We will hike about 3.7 miles from Hampton to Dennis Cove following the Appalachian Trail much of the way, passing Laurel Falls and Laurel Fork Gorge. Then we will meet with anyone who would like to participate in an Earth Day meditation. For those who do not want to hike but want to participate in the meditation, you can join the group in Dennis Cove between 5:30 and 6:00. Participants will need to bring hiking clothes and a lunch to church so that we may leave as soon as possible after the service. For more information contact Gary Barrigar at 543-7576.
Great outing! So invite your friends and join us as we celebrate Earth!
