Creation Care

A relationship with God's creation and a ministry of caring for and healing the earth are integral to what it means to be a United Methodist.

We believe that all of creation is God’s, and that we are responsible for the ways in which we use and abuse it. Our natural world is to be valued and conserved because God has called humanity to be its caretakers (Genesis 1:26-31). Explore the ways United Methodists care for and love all of creation.
