Environment

God not only blessed us with creation, but called us to care for it. At TPC, we take to heart this central tenet of our covenant with God, and work to lead both churchgoers and the community at large in addressing the growing environmental concerns we face.

TPC first earned this special designation from the Presbyterian Church (USA) in 2010 for our “environmental stewardship achievements in worship, education, facilitates and outreach activities.” And TPC has been re-certified every year since—an effort that requires achieving increasingly stricter results each year.  To learn more about this distinction, please click here.

 

TPC is also blessed to be a partner congregation of Interfaith Partners of the Chesapeake, and One Water Partnership.

My roommate in grad school showed me this and I've been doing it ever since. Before I toss the plastic "holder" from a six-pack I cut the plastic tabs. If it makes its way to an ocean/waterway it won't ensnare any fish or sea creatures. Cutting these little plastic strips is somehow very cathartic too. 🙂 ... See MoreSee Less
