Celebrating Earth Day: April 22, 2016
On April 14, 2016
Earth Day began in 1970 and helped launch an environmental movement around the world. According to the Earth Day Network, more than one billion people participate in Earth Day activities each year, making it the largest civic observance in the world.
Creation Care is an important mission to all Christians. One of our Five Marks of Mission calls us “to strive to safeguard the integrity of creation and sustain and renew the life of the earth.”
We have an active Creation Care ministry at Grace Church. The group meets regularly to discuss issues and find ways to help our parish and its members lead more sustainable lives. If you would like to learn more about this ministry, please contact Sabine McDowell.
