Creation Care

Creation Care News

At St. Timothy’s we have a dedicated group of parishioners and community members that meet regularly to discuss how to be faithful stewards of God’s Creation. The Creation Care Team’s goals are learning and discussion, building community and taking action as individuals, institutions and in local and national governments.

Creation Care Discussion Series

We invite you to join us in learning about climate change and to discuss the impact we can make by responding to God’s call to care for creation. Coordinated by the Creation Care Task Force at St. Timothy’s Episcopal Church 

Join us on Zoom! 7-8:30pm on the Wednesdays listed below.

Wednesday November 4 – Estimating Our Impact

Wednesday November 18 – Gratitude & Hope Potluck

Get in the mood for the Thanksgiving holiday by joining in this time to share the good news around creation care that does not make the front pages of the media. This virtual “potluck” celebrates what we have learned and done this year and what gives us hope for the future. Please bring your thanksgivings, hopes and prayers to this “Gratitude Potluck.”

Wednesday December 2 – Holiday Edition

The Christmas season is a celebration of the birth of our savior for the church, but we can also get caught up in the consumerism of the season. The pandemic can make this time even more stressful as our family and community gatherings are curtailed. Come learn how others are celebrating with a gentler impact on creation while reducing personal stress. Please bring your ideas to share.

Wednesday December 16 – Celebrating Creation

Why are we working on creation care? We want to be able to share the places we know and love with our family and friends for years to come. Can you contribute a picture of a favorite place or a piece of recorded music that fills you with the joy of creation? We’ll combine our favorites in a service of music and pictures celebrating the beauty of creation. Please send contributions to wrshreve@gmail.com by December 2 and then join us for an evening of music, pictures, videos and prayers celebrating creation on December 16.
