Crescent Hill Presbyterian Church is Certified as an Earth Care Congregation
Crescent Hill Presbyterian Church is certified as an Earth Care Congregation by Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.)’s Environmental Ministries through February 2016. This honor speaks to the great commitment that this congregation has to caring for God’s earth.
To become an Earth Care Congregation, Crescent Hill Presbyterian Church affirmed the Earth Care Pledge to integrate environmental practices and thinking into all facets of its church life. It also completed projects and activities in the fields of worship, education, facilities, and outreach.
The Earth Care Congregation certification is designed to recognize churches that make the commitment to take seriously God’s charge to “till and keep” the garden.
“It is exciting that this congregation is so dedicated to intentional care of, and action for, God’s earth. Their activities and commitment are an inspiration to people of faith nation-wide who are answering God’s call to care for the earth,” says Rebecca Barnes-Davies, Associate for Environmental Ministries for the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.).
The Earth Care Congregations program was started in 2010 by PC(USA) Environmental Ministries. The goal of the program is to inspire churches to care for God’s earth in a holistic way, through integrating earth care into all of their church life. The Earth Care Congregation certification honors churches that make that commitment and encourages others to follow their example.
