Green Congregation

“ The earth is the Lord's, and all it contains, The world, and those who dwell in it.” — Psalm 24:1

Vision

As stewards of God’s creation, the people of St. Paul Lutheran Church desire to live in harmony with other life and to preserve the earth for future generations. We seek to become a Green Congregation that intentionally works toward healing creation and that contributes to the transformation of society.

Goals

The goals of the Green Congregation program are:

     • To integrate care for creation into what the congregation is and what the congregation does
     • To encourage personal spiritual transformation toward a new relationship with God and all of God's creation
     • To make a difference in the global community by acting locally and by promoting ecological justice

The St. Paul Church Council has acknowledged our congregational responsibility to be a steward of all God's creation. The Green Congregation ministry is woven into the structures that already exist at the church. Existing commissions and committees are charged with incorporating the vision and goals of the program into their work.
