follow Jesus’ lead to responsibly care for and love all of God’s Creation

Creation Justice

Holladay United Church of Christ covenants to embody God’s extravagant love through our care for God’s Creation while seeking justice for the oppressed and vulnerable, and striving for healing and transformational relationships among ourselves, all people, all life, and the planet.

Nature Nurture

The Whole Earth Covenant of HUCC states our responsibility to be caretakers of Creation. Getting out into nature, really experiencing it firsthand (not just through books, movies, or our kitchen windows) develops an appreciation that leads to taking action to protect it. This ministry team will offer field trip opportunities to enjoy nature in the mountains, along the rivers, and in the wetlands, and put you in touch with service opportunities.

Opportunity to Participate

  • join as part of this ministry team to lead adventures or plan activities
  • join the field trips offered on weekends and occasionally on weekdays throughout
  • the year. Look for details, communicated through HUCC, at least 3 weeks prior to the event.
  • engage Salt Lake community events to learn more, have fun and support local nature and wildlife efforts
