Renewal: Beneficiaries of the Easter Offering

The theme of this year’s Easter Offering is RENEWAL. Contributions will be used to build and deepen Plymouth’s relationships with organizations accelerating the pace of, and broadening access to, the renewable energy transition, as well as to organizations working to nourish and renew our lands, waters and all who depend on them. E.J. Kelley and Katie Dillon will connect the spiritual value of renewal with Plymouth’s environmental efforts and the work of Minnesota Interfaith Power and Light, Good Courage Farm, and a new partner whose mission includes entrusting this work to people who have been under served and overburdened by our past energy use.

E.J. Kelley chairs the Board of Outreach, and Katie Dillon co-chairs the Climate and Environmental Justice Committee.
