Joining God in Saving the Earth: Mobilizing for Action on the Climate Crisis

Saturday, October 26, 2019

9 am – 4 pm

On the campus of Central Baptist Theological Seminary, 6601 Monticello Road, Shawnee, KS


Spend a day with other people of faith concerned about the climate crisis. Together we will consider how our faith speaks to this crisis, learn about ways it is being addressed, connect with leaders in our community working on this issue, discover how we can make a difference on an individual, congregational, and societal level, and be inspired to do our part.

The featured speaker will be the Rev. Fletcher Harper, an Episcopal priest and the executive director of GreenFaith, an interfaith environmental coalition providing leadership in the religious environmental movement addressing the climate crisis.

Tickets for $15, includes lunch.

Scholarships are available for students and those who may need them. Please contact Elizabeth Buckner at eabuckner623@gmail.com for scholarship requests.

Registration closes Wednesday, October 23.

Tickets will be available at the door the day of the event for $20.

A certificate of attendance for 6 contact hours for continuing education will be available.

This is a Buttry Center for Peace and Nonviolence event.
