THIRD FRIDAY ACTIVITIES AT ST. PETER’S

The Friday after Easter, April 21, is the beginning of this year’s outdoors Third Fridays Downtown in Salisbury and St. Peter’s is once again planning to be part of the festivities as Salisbury’s downtown church.  For the April Third Friday, St. Peter’s will be selling its famous hot dogs, hamburgers, veggie burgers and drinks in the courtyard and will also have a plant sale and a children’s activity.  These activities will run from 5pm to 8pm. The theme this month is “Sustainable Salisbury,” featuring themes of ecology and caring for creation.

Caring for Creation

In conjunction with Third Friday, St. Peter’s is one of the sites of a two day series of information and activities for the whole family about Caring for Creation, sponsored by the Wicomico Interfaith Partners for Creation Stewardship. This organization brings together Christians, Jews, Muslims and environmental groups who share a common desire to care for God’s creation.

Stuart Clarke, Executive Director of the Town Creek Foundation, will speak at St. Peter’s at 6:30 pm on Friday, April 21 on the topic “The Horse and the Cart: Taking the Next Step Toward Maryland’s Clean Energy Future.” In addition, the program will include music and reflections from leaders of local faith communities and a drum circle.

On Saturday, April 22, this interfaith series continues with talks and activities at Asbury United Methodist Church.   A special Earth Day-themed art activity for youths ages 5-12 will be offered on Saturday morning by the SBY Art Space. Registration is required for this workshop since it is limited to 30 children. To register your child for the art program, call 410-546-4748.

All programs are free and everyone is invited to attend. For further information on the adult programs, call 443-880-3182 or visit http://www.wicomicoenvironment.org/interfaith-stewardship.html
