Reminder: Earth Day, alternative transportation focus of Edmonds church Sunday service

Alternative transportation will be this year’s Earth Day emphasis at Edmonds United Methodist Church on Sunday, April 7.

Representatives from Community Transit, Metro Transit, Sound Transit, the City of Edmonds, Washington State Ferry System, Cascade Cycling Club and the EUMC Walking Club will be on hand at a Transpo-Expo from 10 a.m. to noon that morning in the fellowship hall on the church’s lower level, which is accessible from the church’s lower parking lot.

Sermons at the 9 and 10:30 a.m. worship services in the main floor sanctuary will be presented by Kurt Hoelting, author of “The Circumference of Home,” in which he tells of the year in which he relied only on public transportation, bicycle, kayak and his feet, drastically reducing his carbon footprint. Hoelting is a graduate of the University of Washington and Harvard Divinity School; he spends summers in Alaska as a wilderness guide and commercial fisherman and spends winters in this area.

Hoelting and a slide show of his pictures will also be available after each worship service at the Transpo-Expo. The church is located at 828 Caspers St. in Edmonds, and the public is invited to any of these Earth Day events.  Call the church at 425-778-2119 for more information.
