Four ISC General Synod Delegates presented to the Delegates at Annual Meeting. Picture here are (l to r) Dale Fiedler, Freeburg St. Paul's UCC; Rev. Christy Eckert, Pastor at Trenton St. John UCC;  Rev. Lori Schafer, Pastor at Midway St. John UCC; and Clyde Donovan, Collinsville St. John UCC. Part of their presentation was to give the Delegates ideas for reducing their carbon footprints at the churches. One of the ideas was to reduce the use of styrofoam.
