Caring for God’s Gift and Home to All Creation
The Church of God concerns for the health and well-being of our planet and makes efforts to help protect the environment. Pollution and climate change are among the many challenges that put our planet in jeopardy. Because human beings are the cause of these issues, we can also be the solution.
Volunteers organize activities, such as environmental cleanups and tree plantings, to promote a clean environment. Through forums and tabling events, they share information and educate their neighbors on the negative effects that pollution and climate change have on the environment and demonstrate sustainable changes everyone can make to combat these global issues.
