This ministry is funded through your mission support. Thank you for your weekly offering to your congregation. A portion of that is sent on to the synod for synod-wide ministries such as Care for God’s Creation!
In December of 2015 this team met for the first time. Care of Creation is part of the World Hunger effort of our church. At this time, members of our team include Pastor Mae Jean Zelle (First, Janesville) Jane Harrison (First English-Platteville), Pastor Cindy Crane (LOPPW), Pastor Nick Utphall (Advent, Madison), Bob Lindmeier (St. John’s, Oregon), Eleanor Siebert (Five Points – Blue River) and new member, Debbie Nelson (Bethel-Madison).
Our emphasis is education and advocacy in the area of the environment. We continue to educate about the Carbon Fee and Dividend issue. This year we are prioritizing the formation of Green Committees in churches. Bob Lindmeier continues to be available for speaking engagements and others of the team are also willing as time permits. The SCSW/LOPPW Care for God’s Creation team is excited about our October 6th event “What’s Working in Wisconsin,” which will highlight renewable energy progress in the state and tools for how we can all make a difference. The event is free! Who should attend? Anyone interested in renewable energy for their church, business or home, or who would like to know more about advocacy and various local and statewide groups that help us to care for God’s creation!
