We Are Called to Be Stewards of God’s Creation

Our church cares for God's creation in part through the work of the Green Team. The Team’s goal is to inspire the congregation to work with greater intention toward lessening our environment impact through both individual and community actions. The church takes its charge to be responsible stewards of God's creation as a call to meaningful action for all of us, and the Green Team seeks to provide information and opportunities to support such action. We invite you to explore our work further through the links below.

 

Join us! Contact Su Reid-St.John or Leanna Maglienti if you are interested in becoming a member of the Green Team.

Timely Tips for Greener Living

We’re facing a serious climate emergency. Consider these facts:

  • The five years from 2015 to 2019 were the warmest years ever recorded in the 140 years that NOAA has tracked global heat.
  • Thanks to melting glaciers and ocean warming caused by these rising temperatures, sea levels rose faster in the 20th century than in the previous 2700 years, putting up to 216 million people across the planet at risk of losing their homes.
  • One million animal and plant species are on the verge of extinction.

  • Voting with Creation Care in Mind

    In this time of multiple unprecedented challenges to our country and our world, it is crucial that we not lose sight of the environmental issues that continue to threaten our future. As the election season approaches, please keep in mind that we, as voters, will choose whether or not to elect leaders who will prioritize dealing with climate change. We urge you to support candidates who take the threat of climate crisis seriously and pledge to confront this serious challenge.
