creation care ministry

The Creation Care Ministry at Maple Springs is about growing an attitude of caring for God’s awesome Creation, and then translating that attitude of caring into intentional acts of caring and justice. Through these acts, we are witnessing our love of God to others – showing in a very visible way that we value what God gave us, enough to take care of it!

Psalm 24:1-2…The earth is the Lord’s, and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it; for he founded it upon the seas and established it upon the waters.
