The Care for Creation Network is called to make peace between people and the rest of God’s creation. In partnership with the congregations of the Northeastern Iowa Synod, we:
- Affirm that care for creation is central to the life of God’s people.
- Encourage worship that celebrates God’s creation.
- Advocate education promoting understanding and stewardship of God’s earth.
- Practice good earth citizenship.
- Model disciplined and fruitful community lifestyle.
