Church Gets Out Into God's Creation

First Presbyterian Church of Urbana, recently recertified as one of the 120 PCUSA Earth Care Congregations, brings elements of caring for God's creation into the worship, education, and mission life of the congregation as well as updating their facilities for energy efficiency, water conservation, and other savings. 


This congregation is also good at getting out into God's creation. Spending time outdoors, feeling God's presence in the natural world, and enjoying one another, has proved significant as a part of this congregation's experience of caring for God's creation.
