The Creation Care Team Mission Statement: Being earth keepers is foundational to our Christian vocation. The Creation Care Team encourages members of Christ the King Evangelical Lutheran Church to incorporate care for creation into the congregation’s full life and ministry.
To further our mission, Christ the King Church is in a covenant relationship with Lutherans Restoring Creation. As part of our commitment to incorporate creation care on all levels at CTK, each month in The King’s Banner and on the Creation Care Opportunities page, which you can access via the News & Events menu on the red sidebar, we offer:
- eco-tips and reflections to assist members in incorporating care for creation into their daily life
- articles on a creation-care topic
- vegetarian recipes to encourage members to care for creation by eating lower on the food chain.
- past activities
We are also currently participating in a two-year GreenFaith Certification program. This is an interfaith initiative designed to help houses of worship earn recognition as environmental leaders. CTK is the first church in Houston and one of the first two churches in Texas to accept the challenge of GreenFaith. In order to achieve certification we will carry out over two dozen environmental activities, including these events.
Our daily food choices have a profound effect on God’s creation. Growing, processing, transporting, and cooking our food can use tremendous amounts of energy, water and chemicals. The Creation Care Team asks you to consider making changes to your eating habits in an effort to reduce the negative effects on our planet and our bodies. Eat green – it’s good for the environment and your health!
