Christian concern for the environment is shaped by the Word of God spoken in creation, the Love of God hanging on a cross, the Breath of God daily renewing the face of the earth.

- ELCA Social Statement: Caring for Creation 

Mission

We are a self-organizing committee of the Rocky Mountain Synod of the ELCA whose main focus is on changing how people treat the Earth, from being consumers to advocates, realizing that we are part of creation and what we do to the Earth we do to ourselves.

Our mission is for congregations to become Creation Awareness Centers, for creation to be emphasized throughout the Church Year, and to help the ELCA develop resources that celebrate God's creation so that all expressions of the ELCA will seek to incorporate the principles of sufficiency and sustainability.
