Stone Church - an Earth Care Congregation
Stone Church was certified as an Earth Care Congregation by Presbyterian Church (USA)'s Environmental Ministries in April 2012.
This honor speaks to the great commitment of Stone's members to caring for God's earth.
To become an Earth Care Congregation, Stone affirmed the Earth Care Pledge to integrate environmental practices and thinking into all facets of its church life.
Stone's members also completed projects and activities in the fields of worship, education, facilities and outreach.
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.
"It is exciting that Stone Church of Willow Glen is dedicated to intentional care of, and action for, God's earth. The congregation's activities and commitment are an inspiration to people of faith nationwide who are answering God's call to care for the earth," says Rebecca Barnes-Davies, Associate for Environmental Ministries for the PCUSA.
The Earth Care Congregations program was started in 2010 by PCUSA Environmental Ministries. The goal of the program is to inspire churches to care for God's earth in a holistic way, through integrating earth care into all of their church life.
The Earth Care Congregation certification honors churches that make that commitment and encourages others to follow their example.
