This year, the Youth Choir will be working with oyster castles.
They will also be working with a group called Earthkeepers.
Earthkeepers are United Methodists commissioned by the General Board of Global Ministries who are keenly aware of the ecological challenges in our world today and feel called to be part of a movement to transform the world.
Earthkeepers work with congregations and communities to have a theological base for Caring for Creation. They work with different ministries/projects such as: landscaping with native plants; creating community gardens in urban "food deserts," instituting recycling; advocating for renewable energy policies, or working for environmental justice by cleaning up rivers, landscapes and toxic waste sites near their communities. They may do all of these things and more!
Earthkeepers are laity and clergy, students, part-time and full-time workers, and retirees. They may have a vocation that allows them to focus on caring for creation during their regular work hours, or they may choose to volunteer their time.
