The Church and Society Committee works to activate church members pertaining to local, national, and international issues according to General Board of Church and Society policies, which are current applications of the Social Principles from the Book of Discipline. Our committee meets the first Wednesday of every month at 6:30pm. Please join us. We invite you to explore the following documents and links: Texas Impact - People of Faith Working for Justice • Faith in Action • World Council of Churches
Join us with this New Year's resolution to do away with paper and styrofoam plates. It takes decades for these plates to decompose in our landfills due to the plastic chemicals used to make them durable and leak-proof. The hospitality committee for JFON has invested in Nordicware plates available at Walmart which are reusable, microwave and dishwasher safe. Nordicware may be found in the microwave section. The cost is minimal (2 dinner-size plates for $3). These will be used for the JFON monthly meetings for the food served to clients and their families and to clinic volunteers.
We are encouraging our congregation members to think about not using paper plates at home and at other church events to make a difference in our recycling habits.
Richardson residents who are being affected by the recent fire at the recycling center causing a temporary halt to recycling pickup, there are two blue recycling bins in Campbell Green Park at the corner of Campbell & Meadowcreek where you can deposit your recycled items until normal pickup at your residence is resumed.
