Care for Creation

God created the heavens and the earth and gave them to us. We show thanks to God for these gifts by caring for them.  Our Care for Creation team plans projects and events to care for God’s creation as well educates others on how to do so.  Care for Creation ministry has coordinated projects such as gardening classes, canning classes, salsa making, solar panels, crafting with repurposed items, river clean-up, medicine collection, recycling items such as toner and inkjet cartridges, toy swaps, clothing swap and more.  Your ideas are welcome! If you would like further information or have ideas, contact Pr. Margaret, 414-774-0441.
