Events Current and upcoming events for training and fellowship in the district.
On Giving Tuesday, November 27, please consider partnering with United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) using the newly-established Advance #3022499 to support Creation Care. This Advance will ensure sustainability for the EarthKeepers’ training program, create the opportunity for EarthKeepers to apply for grants to fund their projects, and support energy efficiency and renewable energy initiatives. This Advance was created in response to demand from United Methodists who want to support Creation Care in the UMC.
Read about some EarthKeepers’ Creation Care projects at https://www.umcmission.org/giving-tuesday/2018/creation-care. The opening story is about a United Methodist EarthKeeper in Broken Arrow, OK, who leads development and management of a large community garden there. About half way down the story, notice the Monarch Butterfly Wayside Station sign in their church parking lot. In our Southwest District, the Stockton United Methodist Church Go Green Team would like to establish a Monarch garden on church property with a sign like this! For more information, contact our Missouri Conference EarthKeeper, Cheryl Marcum, Stockton UMC Creation Care Ministry leader. Thank you for your support!
