We are an Earth-Care Congregation


Earth Care Corner

We join 10 other Presbyterian congregations across Pennsylvania (and about 290 nationwide) that have publicly taken the four pledges below.


We are still seeking volunteers for our newly forming Earth Care Corner, which will seek ways to grow our attention and action on behalf of Mother Earth. This will launch as an email group for sharing ideas, news, questions, and concerns. If you would like to join this group, please email your interest to the office at

Our pledges:

worship 400x302


Our worship and discipleship will celebrate God's grace and glory in creation and declare that God calls us to cherish, protect, and restore the earth.


Our facilities will be managed, maintained and upgraded in a manner that respects and cherishes all creation, human and non-human, while meeting equitably the needs of all people. In our buildings and on our grounds, we will use energy efficiently, conserve resources, and share what we have in abundance so that God's holy creation will be sustainable for all life and future generations.



Our outreach will encourage public policy and community involvement that protects and restores the vulnerable and degraded earth as well as oppressed and neglected people. We will be mindful that our personal and collective actions can positively or negatively affect our neighborhood, region, nation, and world. We will seek to achieve environmental justice through coalitions and ecumenical partnerships.


In education, we will seek learning and teaching opportunities to know and understand the threats to God's creation and the damage already inflicted. We will encourage and support each other in finding ways of keeping and healing the creation in response to God's call to earth-keeping, justice, and community.
