Presbyterians have always sought to put their faith in action not only with deeds of compassion but also through acts of social witness. Finding ways to advocate for justice for all of God’s children, including God’s creation, is essential to being faithful disciples of Christ. Through our partnership with agencies such as Christians for a United Community, BeLoved House, and the Asheville Poverty Initiative (and their 12 Baskets Cafe), we seek to address the inequities related to race and class.
Driven by the Creation Care Team, our congregation was one of the first 15 churches in the denomination to be certified as an Earth Care Congregation, taking intentional steps to incorporate earth stewardship into our outreach, facilities and operations, education.
