The Care of Creation Committee’s mission is to increase our collective awareness of God’s creation around the 32-acre grounds of Eastern Shore Chapel and gently lead us towards practices that reduce our impact on the environment. We are also committed to educating the congregation about our stewardship responsibilities and helping us learn to live, collectively and individually, in greater harmony with the land, the Lynnhaven River, the Chesapeake Bay, the Atlantic Ocean and “this fragile earth, our island home.”
