"Caring for Creation should be a natural response to loving Jesus. I am in awe over the intricacies and systems created that support life. To love my neighbor as myself, I must care and act so my neighbors can have clean water, air and healthy food. I care because God cares for what He’s created."

Following the UMC Bishop's letter on creation, several members of West End UMC with the blessing of the ministry table formed the "Green team." The goal of the team is primarily to educate and encourage our congregation to care for creation and to find and implement ways our building can have a smaller carbon footprint.
