04/13 - Palm Sunday

Join us for worship on Palm Sunday, April 13, where we will use a different kind of palm.

The Earth Care Congregation team arranged to have our palms for Palm Sunday come from the Eco-Palm Project of the Presbyterian Church USA.

Why?
  • Eco-palms preserve the vitality of the communities and forests for years to come.
  • Community groups receive 5 to 6 times the payment per frond than they would from conventional harvesting.
  • Eco-palms are purchased directly from the producers.
  • The local processing adds value to the communities, most of which are in Mexico and Guatemala.
  • Ensuring a market for the palms protects the forests from clear cutting. 
  • Our Eco-palms purchase helps improve standards of living and protects forests.
