Earth Care Missions

                 
  “The Lord God put the man in the garden of Eden to till it and keep it.”  
Genesis 2:15
  
   
Earth Care Congregation
Limestone Presbyterian Church was certified as an Earth Care Congregation 
by Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.)'s Environmental Ministries on October 7, 2011. By doing so we have made a commitment to caring for God’s earth and affirmed the Earth Care Pledge to integrate environmental practices and thinking into all
facets of church life.

The Earth Care Congregations program was started in 2010 by PC(USA) Environmental Ministries. The goal of the program is to inspire churches to care for God’s earth in a holistic way.
