We understand the importance of serving as caretakers of God’s creation and highlight Environmental Justice as an important ministry. The Environmental Justice program is part of UCP's Justice & Peace Ministry Team. We believe that peace and justice is God's plan for all creation. God calls us to be careful stewards of the the earth and to protect it for its own sake and for future generations.
Our Environmental Justice Team and congregation is dedicated to advocating for God's planet so that all of God's children can equally share in the goodness of Creation.
United Christian Parish is certified as an Earth Care congregation. To receive certification, recipients must meet certain criteria demonstrating a care for sustainable developments for environmental justice in four categories: worship, education, facilities and outreach.
The garden deepens connections among members and guests, the community and the planet while promoting environmental sustainability.
Annually we celebrate God’s creation and our roles as stewards with a special worship service.
