“But ask the animals, and they will teach you;
the birds of the air, and they will tell you;
ask the plants of the earth, and they will teach you;
and the fish of the sea will declare to you.
Who among all these does not know
that the hand of the Lord has done this?
In his hand is the life of every living thing
and the breath of every human being."
We see God’s handiwork in the beauty of everything, from the stars to whales to rabbits to fractals, and everything in between.
God calls us in Genesis 2 to “till and keep” the earth. We honor God’s commandment to continually learn about ways that we can live in a more sustainable fashion to reduce our impact upon the Earth, for the earth does not belong to us: it belongs to God.
Some of our practices include:
Hosting educational sessions on ways to reduce our carbon footprint individually and collectively
Providing gently used clothing to our neighbors in need
Identifying plastic-free alternatives to popular household items
Promoting use of reusable grocery bags
Reducing our congregational use of single-use plastic water bottles
Serving as a distribution point for the re-use of medicine bottles
Regretfully, we do not accept used printer cartridges.
Hosting Earth Day Sundays, centering our worship and fellowship time around creation
Migrating our historic building to improved energy efficiency, as we can
Creating our own Christmas wrapping paper with Kraft paper
Enjoying time in nature together with each other monthly
Go/Grow Green with us! We welcome you to help preserve this precious planet of ours with us!
