Climate Crisis

Ask the animals, and they will teach you; the birds of the air will tell you; the plants of the earth will teach you; the fish of the sea will declare to you...In God’s hand is the life of every living thing and the breath of every human being.
Job 12:7-10
What's at Stake

The climate crisis is one of the most pressing issues of our time. Rising seas, drought, superstorms, wildfires and more threaten all of God’s creation. These disasters quickly translate into humanitarian crises as homes are destroyed, refugees seek shelter, and people across the world can no longer meet their basic needs. While this is an issue that touches everyone, the world’s poorest, who have contributed the least to the problem, are being impacted first and worst.

What We're Doing

As Christians, we have a duty to care for God’s creation and take immediate and meaningful action on climate change. We aim to tackle this challenge by participating in the Green Congregation Challenge. Together we are greening our church, advocating for effective policies, living more simply, and learning along the way.
