Capital Region Interfaith Creation Care Coalition

Who We Are

The Capital Region Interfaith Creation Care Coalition was formed in the spring of 2018 to bring together faith groups in the Capital Region of New York State.  We currently have representatives of 24 different faith communities on our mailing list with 23 of those communities regularly active in our meetings. 

The Coalition has 4 Committees:

·        Renewable Energy

·        Toward Zero Waste

·        Earth Regeneration

Our Mission Statement

We make Care of Creation a central moral priority by working in solidarity to mitigate the climate emergency and to preserve and restore natural resources and biodiversity for present and future generations.  We accomplish this in accordance with our values by educating ourselves and our faith communities, advocating for the environment, reducing our carbon and waste footprints, and adopting behaviors that will ensure the sustainability of life in all its diversity on Earth.

Join Us

We welcome more faith groups in the region to become involved with our efforts.  

Our next meeting is in-person on Sunday, July 14, 2024 at 5:30 PM at Emmanuel Reformed Church in Castleton, NY for our annual picnic.  The address is 1150 Maple Hill Road.  It will be carry-in and carry-out with no fires or alcohol.  Please bring an appetizer, main or side dish, or dessert to share.  Also, please bring your own beverage, plates, and utensils.  At 6:30 PM we will have a meeting.
