Caretakers of God’s Creation, a ministry of the Virginia Conference Board of Church and Society, is now accepting applications for the Green Church Award, an award recognizing churches in the Virginia Conference who are answering God’s call to be caretakers of God’s creation.  

Nominees should be churches who are dedicated to caring for and healing God’s creation, as demonstrated in five areas of church life: worship, discipleship, stewardship, evangelism, and mission. 

To nominate a church to receive this award, please send a letter with the name, address, phone number, and email of the church and a church representative, and a detailed description of what that church is doing to care for creation in these five ministry areas, and send to:  The Rev.
