Watershed Discipleship – Sundays in July

July 10, 2016 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 10:00 am on Sunday, repeating until July 31, 2016

We all live in a watershed.

As one’s watershed is one’s basin of relationships (or cradle), it is a way of stressing the local context of our discipleship.  The grounds of United Church of Chapel Hill includes Booker Creek.  This branch of Booker Creek begins near the Fire Department at the corner of Weaver Dairy and MLK Jr Blvd and meanders through the park before entering our grounds.  As there is a small, perhaps intermittent, spring on our grounds that feeds the creek, you may even say United Church is at the “headwaters” of Booker Creek.  What is our responsibility as people of the “headwaters” for our watershed which eventually becomes the larger Cape Fear basin?

While our children are having a Vacation Bible School program on “Water,” adults are invited to join in a conversation this July on “Watershed Discipleship.”

  • Sunday, July 10: Wendy Smith, Stormwater Management Environmental Education Coordinator for the Town of Chapel Hill, will be our guest.  She will introduce us to our watershed.
  • Sunday, July 17: Jim Bramlett, from Living Waters for the World (LWW), a mission resource of the Synod ofmLiving Waters of the Presbyterian Church (USA), trains and equips mission teams to share the gift of clean, sustainable water with communities in need. LWW water treatment systems and related educational programs fill a critical niche in the world water crisis – communities with available but contaminated water.  Jim Bramlett will also be speaking with the children in Vacation Bible School on this morning. 
  • Sunday, July 24: A walk by the stream
  • Sunday, July 31: Discussion on articles about Watershed Discipleship to be passed out.
