Coastal Cleanup is back again this year! The Coastal Cleanup event began back in 2016 as a way of welcoming our church and our neighbors into a simple way of caring for our city. We partner with CoastSweep, Gloucester’s DPW, and other organizations to spend a few hours cleaning up some of the beaches and shoreline spaces here in Gloucester. We know this only puts a small dent into the bigger fight to protect our shoreline, but it’s a great way to introduce us to a thankful approach to caring for creation as well as to help the ongoing and sustainable efforts of organizations like Coastsweep and Ocean Conservancy -- perhaps even helping them to enact policies to seek better ways to protect the long term health of the planet.
Saturday, September 15
9:00 am until we’re done
(or until you have to leave!)
Meet on the Front Lawn of the Church
We'll provide gloves and trashbags (and you provide the volunteer power) as we collect marine debris from beaches, public landings, and other waterfront areas across the city. We will have some snacks and coffee available (using only compostable paper products). Let us know if you and your family will be joining us by RSVP’ing here. See you on the 15th of September for this great way to love and care for our city together!
