Looking for fun activities for your kids? Or how about a new wildlife documentary film screening? Or maybe, a workshop on gardening or bike repair? Our calendar features upcoming community events for those who enjoy a mix of outdoors, activism, creativity, and learning.
Join IPC and Fairhaven United Methodist Church for a fun and family friendly Earth Festival on Sunday April 24, noon-3pm to celebrate Earth Day! (Rain Date: Sunday, May 1, 2022, same time.)
IPC is delighted to announce that Fairhaven United Methodist Church has been awarded the City of Gaithersburg 2022 Environmental Award for it’s commitment to environmental stewardship and for planning this event!
The Fairhaven Green Team has organized a series of intergenerational activities for the Earth Festival, which include:
– A children’s garden planting of native Maryland plants
– Resources about gardening
– Decluttering collection site
– A warm welcome from Champ the cow!
*(Note: The Green Team is arranging with the MCPS Office of Student Service Learning to provide community service hours to high school students who want to help set up for the children’s garden.)
Environmental resources from organizations will be available to show what you can do to care for Creation in our local community and watershed. The church is also partnering with local businesses to receive corporate donations of tools, raised beds, fertilizer, and plantings.
A special thanks to Montgomery Energy Connection who will be providing a light bulb exchange for up to 3 lightbulbs per person!
Fairhaven United Methodist Church’s environmental mission is: “to seek God’s presence with us as we join hands with neighbors receiving the gifts of nature and learning how to be good stewards of what God has blessed us.”
