Trinity Church hosts 'save energy' party

Trinity Episcopal Church in Menlo Park is hosting a party from 11 a.m. to noon Sunday, Oct. 10, calling on people to reduce their energy use by 10 percent this year, according to Lynn O'Leary Pieron, a spokesperson for the church.

Those who attend the party, to be held in the Trinity courtyard at 330 Ravenswood Ave. in Menlo Park, will receive "inspiration, tips and tools to reach their goal," she said.

People can sign up for free home services from Acterra's Green@Home program and for the "No on 23 faith campaign" to defeat Proposition 23, which would postpone mandated reductions in greenhouse gas emissions until the economy improves.

At the 10 a.m. worship services, a guest preacher, the Rev. Sally Bingham, will talk about the link between ecology and spirituality.

"She is the driving force behind Interfaith Power and Light, which unites 10,000 congregations in 35 states in a religious response to global warming," Ms. Pieron said in a press release.

For more information, call Ms. Pieron at 529-9232.
