Building a sustainable church, like building a sustainable community, requires the commitment and cooperation of its members. But fueling that commitment and empowering members will require plentiful opportunities for learning, involvement and enrichment through Earth Care events and initiatives.
A January Earth Care speaker event will be announced soon. Upcoming speaker topics are expected to include:
- Embracing God’s mandate to be stewards of His creation
- Arizona’s water crisis and options for dealing with it
- International impact of environmental degradation on the poor
- The complicated, confusing rules for recycling in the Valley of the Sun
- Listening to God through nature
Speakers will present to an in-person audience with live streaming and recorded video available. Guests, dates, times and places will be posted on this page.
Earth Care educational opportunities for Winter/Spring will include classes for all ages:
- A multi-week series for young people on environmental issues and potential responses.
- Several short-term adult classes, in person and online.
- Environmental topics and hands-on activities for children directed by PVUMC’s Director of Children and Family Ministries.
If you’re ready to get involved in planning and implementing Earth Care, let us know the areas that interest you. Note these are initial ideas. Other ideas will likely emerge as people get involved.
