Joining with congregations from other denominations, churches across the United States will be waving almost 1 million Eco-Palms this Palm Sunday. Working together, we do make a difference! 2. Eco-Palms may be ordered online: https:// www.presbyterianmission.org/ministries/compassion-peacejustice/hunger/enough/eco-palms-2/ or by phone at 651-487-7189. 3. More than 300 million palm fronds are harvested each year for U. S. consumption alone – most of them for Palm Sunday, but also for floral displays for church-related events. Your congregation’s commitment to purchase eco-palms plays an important role in protecting forests, local jobs, and sustainable livelihoods in the harvesting communities. 2017 IGNITE PRESENTS: We received multiple submissions for Ignite presentations – and we’re thrilled to share the five we’ve selected for the NEXT Church National Gathering in less than two months!
