Environmental Ministries Commission

Our work is based on the belief, as stated in the 2007 diocesan resolution, that “we are called through a covenant with God to be stewards of creation.” We seek to provide practical information, especially as it relates to the Eastern Shore.

We collect information about existing environmental efforts including but not limited to recycling; upgrading heating, cooling, lighting, or septic systems; installing insulation, energy-saving windows, or solar power arrays; planting trees or a rain garden; collecting rainwater runoff in rain barrels; landscaping with native plants; or restoring shoreline in an environmentally appropriate way.

We also provide support for study groups or presentations about environmental stewardship, as well as providing information about adding liturgical elements (e.g., prayers, sermon themes) about God’s creation and our responsibilities as stewards.
