Climate Resilience Skill-Up Team

This team facilitates Climate Resilience Skill-Up Workshops from 5 to 7:30 p.m. on the third Saturday each month. These gatherings are open to the public, family-friendly, and intended to help us build resilient community as we live into a climate-changed world. They include a potluck dinner with time to chat about our grief and gratitude for the earth, some sing-along time, and a workshop tackling a skill that will help us build our resilience together.

The first two workshops in October and November 2023 were devoted to planning for the year and discussing a film. Following is the remaining schedule for the church year:

  • Dec. 16, 2023 – Slowing the Season (Holiday Pause) – This will be a cozy gathering to share our practices and resources for slowing down during the fallow season of our hemisphere. We’ll have relaxing music, candlelight, a time for silent contemplation, and the opportunity to discuss how to opt into a different pace.
  • Jan. 20, 2024 – Basic Electric Repair
  • Feb. 17, 2024 – Resource Mapping
  • March 16, 2024 – Collecting/Filtering Water
  • April 20, 2024 – Emergency Communication Planning
  • May 18, 2024 – Surviving Heat Waves

Members of the Climate Resilience Skill-Up Team are Jenny Bossaller, Rebecca Graves, Jeff Ordway, Kim Wade and Rev. Molly Housh Gordon.
