Creation Care Ministry meets on the 1st Tuesday of every month via zoom to discuss opportunities for our congregation to become better stewards with God’s creation.

The Creation Care Ministry has been prayerfully leading University Christian Church in its stewardship of God’s good earth for over 15 years. Replacing the Styrofoam cups used in the church building was one of Creation’s Care early projects. The cups, sporting the ministry’s logo, are now used at all coffee fellowships and a team of Creation Care folks has committed to washing them every Sunday morning after they are used.

Creation Care Ministry informs and encourages church policies for recycling and sustainable, efficient energy use: placement of recycling containers throughout the building; use of energy efficient lighting; green cleaning products; use of china instead of disposables at church events; use of programmable thermostats; and purchasing 10% of electricity by wind power.

To solve a muddy run-off problem at the corner of the Cantey/Rogers street UCC parking lot, a Xeriscape garden was created and now contains a variety of Texas-acclimated plants which do not require supplemental watering.

Every year, CC encourages participation in Earth Stewardship Sunday, which has included a worship theme focused on God’s good earth and after worship events such as meals with local produce, a butterfly release, dedication of the peace pole and providing interactive activities to help inform the congregation of ways to make a difference.
