EarthCare Ministry

The "Green Team"

The EarthCare Ministry fosters the awareness of our spiritual oneness with our Earth home and promotes active care of Creation. In short, it helps UCR stay green.

Unity is proud to be a Certified EarthCare Congregation.

In May 2010 UnityCR became the first congregation in the Midwest to become a member of the EarthCare ministry of Unity Worldwide Ministries. We created a covenant statement that embraced our dedication to the EarthCare vision and completed the first level of participation. We are currently in the process of completing level two.

The vision statement of Unity Worldwide Ministries EarthCare is: “All humanity lives in a spiritual consciousness that manifests as loving coexistence with all creation and care for our Earth home.”
