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.

We’ve been using it for birthdays for a while but for Christmas I had to make the switch this year for daniel’s gifts. I’m going to keep saving my ribbon forever! (picture of them in their hiding place waiting for the big day! Shhh!) ... See MoreSee Less

I found myself spending too much time on social media on my phone. Often that led to doom scrolling. So I started crocheting again and found it a lot more satisfying than staring at my phone. Today I went to grab more yarn and found something new, at least to me. soft, pretty yarn made from recycled plastic! Who knew? ... See MoreSee Less
