To become an Earth Care Congregation, MCPC affirmed the Earth Care Pledge to integrate environmental practices and thinking into all facets of our church life. MCPC has also completed projects and activities in the fields of worship, education, facilities, and outreach. February 2017 was our inaugural certification; MCPC will continue to be intentional in our environmental impact and seek recertification every year.
“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“
Earth Care Congregations program was started in 2010 by PC(USA) Environmental Ministries. For more information check out the PC(USA) Earth Care Congregations site.
