earth care central

We invite you to join us as we work together to:

  • Walk more gently on God's creation by learning ways to lower our carbon footprint
  • Restore God's creation

We highlight several ways we engage missionally in caring for creation in the passages below. 

Our monthly Mission and Earth Care Newsletter is also a great way to stay current on missional and earth care opportunities with CENTRALongmont.  To see the most recent issue or to review past issues of our newsletter, please enjoy the Mission and Earth Care News archive. There are many ways to get connected through your love for God's creation.  Join Us!  

We are proud to be a certified Earth Care Congregation with the PC(USA).  Learn more about what that means in our About section.

restoring god's creation

In 2023, we started our project, Sacred Grounds, to beautify our landscaping while caring for God's creation by creating a native garden.  Because native plants are adapted to local environmental conditions, they save a most valuable natural resource, water. In addition to providing vital habitat for birds, many other species of wildlife benefit as well. The colorful array of butterflies and moths in our area are all dependent on very specific native plant species. Native plants provide nectar for pollinators including hummingbirds, native bees, butterflies, moths, and bats.  To read about the native plants selected for our native garden, please click on the button below. Let us learn together what changes we can make to our own natural spaces . . . on our grounds, at our homes, for our community.  As we continue to add to our garden in 2024, we will continue sharing about the new plants each week throughout the spring and summer.
