Creation Care Task Force

Welcome to the Diocese of Virginia’s Creation Care Task Force web page.

Our mission is to help church members, parishes and missions of the Diocese consider environmental stewardship as a practice of faith and to provide resources for the implementation of creation care projects.

“When the bow is in the clouds, I will look upon
it and remember
the everlasting covenant
between God and every living creature of all
flesh that is on the earth.” Genesis 9:16

Creation Care Resolutions and Resources

The Episcopal Church, on all levels, has made Creation Care one of its top priorities.

The Episcopal Church’s Covenant for the Care of Creation is a commitment to practice loving formation, liberating advocacy and life-giving conversation as individuals, congregations, ministries and dioceses.

Creating a Green Team in Your Church

Each congregation in the Diocese of Virginia is unique. Having a Green Team within your church means creation care worship, education and action goals can be made meaningful to your own congregation. Environmental justice issues can be addressed at the local level. Even the smallest steps help. The diocesan Creation Care Task Force is here and ready to help. Send us an email at DioceseOfVaCreationCare@gmail.com. Below is a list of additional resources for use by green teams in local congregations.
