We believe that caring for God’s earth is crucial to our spiritual life and social justice work. The Caring for Creation Committee works for sustainability in our communal life and in our individual lives. You can expect speakers and events that promote and educate about sustainability.
Our denominations offer certifications based on a commitment to sustainability.
In May 2019, the UCC recognized Macalester Plymouth United Church as a Creation Justice Church.
In March 2021, we received our seventh annual certification as an Earth Care Congregation by the PC(USA)’s Environmental Ministries.
In June 2018, the Justice and Witness Team (Creation Justice) of the Minnesota Conference (UCC) recognized Macalester Plymouth as a Green Justice Congregation for the fourth consecutive year.
In October 2015, heeding the call of the General Synod (UCC) for responsible stewardship of God’s creation, we passed a congregational resolution to become an Earthwise Congregation.
