Church Earth Care Stories from Nevada

Recently I received an exciting update on environmental stewardship projects in Presbyterian churches in the Presbytery of Nevada from Elaine Noble, the presbytery’s Stewardship of Creation Enabler.  Read about some of the exciting projects going on in the presbytery:

Covenant Presbyterian Church in Reno started the Covenant Community Garden in 2010, with help from a church member who is a Master Gardener. The church decided to put vacant land on their property to use, creating an opportunity for church members to create community through gardening together, and to share the garden’s harvest with others in the community.  Half of the produce from the garden is gived to organizations in the community that reach out to people in need, including the Hosanna Home, St. Vincent's Dining Room, and the Reno/Sparks Gospel Mission.  Read a recent article about the church’s garden in the Reno Gazette Journal.

Two churches in the Presbytery of Nevada have gone solar: Community Presbyterian Church in Hawthorne and First Presbyterian Church in Elko.  Elaine Noble noted that First Presbyterian is “doing well with its installation and has been a model for other churches in its community.”

Thanks, Elaine, for sharing this information on how churches in Nevada are working to care for God’s creation, and thank you to their churches for making this work a part of their ministries.  If your church has an earth care story that you would like to share on the Eco-Journey blog, please email
