Monday, April 24, 2017 – Heather Bennett, Creation Care/Blessed Earth

Heather always had a love for creation, but was unsure how it connected with her faith.  Many years ago, she read Serve God, Save the Planet written by Dr. Matthew Sleeth. She was excited to read something that finally connected the dots for her.  Heather will tell us her story and how she uses the foundation of Blessed Earth in her creation care ministry and how we can use it with preschoolers, teaching them to be good stewards of God’s creation. Grace UMC – Mt Juliet 2905 N Mt Juliet Rd Mt Juliet, TN 37122
