The event offered over 20 workshops on topics such as “A Biblical Theological Foundation for Creation Care” to “Faith Principles of Creation Care” and, of course, our specialty “Environmental Stewardship”.
OMG’s message to the congregation is one of hope. We outline why each church community should reevaluate their current program offerings to ensure we are all focusing on the fact that as stewards of God’s creations it is up to use to protect the earth and all He has given to us.

Let’s talk about Global Climate Change; did you know that “it is estimated that more than 1/3rd of the Earth’s animal species and almost 20% of the plant species face extinction by 2050 if we maintain our current greenhouse gas trajectory.”

Our goal was to foster a higher sense of awareness among the children and their families about the amount of plastic trash we generate. Our hopes are that children will learn early on about how harmful plastic is and they will grow up supporting change. And hopefully, they might even help their families do the same.
As expected, the number one item amongst all the trash was Single-Use Plastic Bags. The entire wheelbarrow was filled to capacity. The second largest group of trash is water/beverage bottles followed by food packaging i.e. fresh-fruit containers, pre-made salads and lunch trays etc. Lastly, were all the detergent bottles and yogurt cups etc.
