Creation Care Sunday

This Sunday will be our Creation Care celebration. The choirs will be singing several wonderful pieces from Andrew Carter’s Benedicite. Our opening prayer comes from Samoa and is found in the Presbyterian Book of Common Worship:


Almighty God, your word of creation

caused the water to be filled

with many kinds of living beings

and the air to be filled with birds.

We rejoice in the richness of your creation,

and we pray for your wisdom

for all who live on this earth,

that we may wisely manage

and not destroy what you have made

for us and for our descendants.

In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.
