University City United Methodist church has been on the “Created to Care” series during Lent 2020, focused on caring for the planet. Climate change has been an issue brought up in the pulpit during the series.
We have encouraged congregants to use the Creation Justice Ministries Lent 2020 calendar and, in an attempt to give everyone an opportunity to actively engage in creation care, and exercise the “keep it and till it” responsibility that we were given in the garden, each participant were given a seed starter cup to take care of, and bring back to church on April 19.
Following the UMC lectionary, April 19 is the “Festival of God’s Creation” Sunday. UCUMC will celebrate this day and Earth Day week by planting the community garden with the collective germinated plants that the congregation brings back to us. We will bless the garden and have a special creation care celebration on this day.
