New Tools from the Legislative Session: Things Your Congregation Can Do

The Texas Legislature this session passed a number of bills that provide hands-on things your congregation can do to help the environment and help other people—and in some cases, do both at the same time. We are excited about some of these new opportunities—so much so, we’re making plans to visit different areas of the state to provide legislative wrap-up sessions.

There are a couple of different ways to find out more about what environmental, energy and food-related bills passed this session. Right now, we've done presentations in Austin and Houston, and Fort Worth is next. Also, our June conference call focused on this topic. Here are the details:

Thursday, August 4, 2011 in Fort Worth – 7:00 p.m.
This event co-sponsored by the Tarrant Area Community of Churches; please RSVP by e-mailing Rev. Melinda Veatch.

Unity Church of Fort Worth
5051 Trail Lake Dr.
