Around 1990, Centenary began the Environmental Council with members committed to wise stewardship of God’s creation. In 2013, the name of the group was changed to Centenary Creation Care Ministry in keeping with the direction that this kind of ministry has been taking within the church at large – focusing on our spiritual responsibility as part of God’s Kingdom on earth. This ministry offers opportunities throughout the year for members to learn and to participate in various church and community activities.
Learn more about Creation Care Ministry by contacting Frank Hassell.
We are driven by the knowledge:
That from the first book of Genesis through the last book of Revelation, the Bible calls humankind to care for Creation;
That God holds us accountable for the state of the earth and the quality of our stewardship;
That United Methodism teaches that our Covenant with God requires us to be stewards, protectors, and defenders of all Creation.
Therefore, the Creation Care Ministry is a part of our church for the following purposes:
To educate ourselves, our church, and our community about our stewardship responsibilities to Creation;
To raise awareness in ourselves, our church, and our community about the ways we can help meet the needs of God’s Creation;
To be active in our church, our community, our state, and our nation individually and in organizations committed to these ideals.
