First Presbyterian Church (Oak Ridge, TN) cares about God's creation and acts to show it in a variety of ways. In their worship life, educational offerings, outreach activities, and in their buildings and grounds, this congregation operates with an earth care ethic as part of their Christian discipleship.
From hosting a potluck of foods made with local ingredients to inviting a nationally-recognized climate change speaker to their community, this congregation believes that caring for the world around them is part and parcel of living out their faith.
