Caring for Creation Corner

With the new administration in the White House, many people are concerned about less attention being given to the environment due to a President with a lack of belief in human induced climate change. On the bright side, many people are speaking out and making sure their elected representatives know how they feel. A major upcoming event is the People’s Climate March on April 29 in Washington D.C. At this point, no local events are planned, but that may change. Please contact Joe Arevalo if you are interested in attending in Washington D.C. as some financial & logistical support is available via the Caring for Creation ministry and via the Christian Reformed Church Office of Social Justice. Other events happening locally:
