Our church members practice stewardship by promoting the benefits of being a member of a church, sharing our various talents for the good of the church and contributing with tithes and offerings, but one other facet of stewardship is available to us. Environmental stewardship. God gave us this beautiful planet and has entrusted us to be good stewards of it. Below are ways we can do this, not only at church but at home in our everyday lives.
Adopt-a-Road: This City program is intended to help their Public Works Department by picking up litter and trash along a specified section of roadway. In our case, we have adopted the section on Palm Harbor Parkway from Frontier Drive to Cottonwood Court. Our work in this regard allows the City crews to divert their litter cleaning up crews to other areas while at the same time giving our church exposure in the City by means of the Adopt-a-Road signs posted at the two ends of this adopted roadway section that runs by our church. We meet every other month and the work takes less than an hour. Safety vests, gloves and trash bags are provided by the City so no money or donations are required to participate.
Recycling: Since our current waste hauler has stopped recycling plastic bottles, we can take home those used bottles we use at church and recycle in that manner since residential recycling does take this item. The same would apply to any other plastic item that has a 1 or 2 in the triangular symbol. Additionally, plastic bags that the church gets from stores or grocery stores can be taken and returned to those stores for recycling, rather than just putting them in the church’s trash.
Adopt-a-Planter: There are two long raised wall planters on the front of the church facing Florida Park Drive that need flowers. There is no irrigation to these planters, but drought tolerant ground covers that cascade over the wall edge are a beautiful addition to the church landscaping. We have used dune sunflower plants in the past and they have worked well, but the planters need periodic watering to establish and some weeding to keep them nice. If you are interested in this adoption, please contact the Facility Care Committee chairman.

“Train up a child in the way he should go, Even when he is old he will not depart from it.” –Proverbs 22:6
