Faith Formation Series: Creation Care + Environmental Stewardship
2019 Faith Formation
Creation Care and Environmental Stewardship
Norwood Room @ 9:00 a.m.-9:45 a.m.
This faith formation series is designed to provide a space for members of our community to explore the intersection between creation care and our call as Christians. This will provide an opportunity to explore ways to be mindful of environmental stewardship. Discussion will be led by staff as well as community partners. This will be a space to share how they are mindful of sustainable practices and how we can further get involved within our community, as environmentally minded Christians living in and around downtown Richmond.
