Reducing Our Environmental Footprint
on the Planet

"An Action Response to the
2009 Annual Conference Green Resolution"

Every choice you make contributes to the health of the planet, for better or worse. Creation Care 2010 has been organized to point the way to living healthily, sustainably and with greater concern for other inhabitants of this world. In response to the Northern Illinois Conference's adoption of the "Green Resolution," DGFUMC has taken the lead to host a variety of keynote speakers to coach us to live more socially responsible.
