Second Church is proud to be a Certified Earth Care Congregation in the Presbyterian Church (USA) since 2012. The congregation has pledged to "green" the church in the areas of worship, education, food, and facilities, and to work with the Central West End neighborhood in St. Louis and beyond on ways to care for God's good creation. The Earth Care Team is composed of about ten members of the congregation and sees itself part of the Earth Care Action Team on the Presbytery of Giddings-Lovejoy, composed of members from the ten Earth Care Congregations in the Giddings-Lovejoy Presbytery.
Earth Care Pledge
Peace and justice is God’s plan for all creation. The earth and all creation are God’s. God calls us to be careful, humble stewards of this earth, and to protect and restore it for its own sake, and for the future use and enjoyment of the human family. As God offers all people the special gift of peace through Jesus Christ, and through Christ reconciles all to God, we are called to deal justly with one another and the earth.
