Come and Witness for a Sustaining, Wondrous, Planet Earth.  Come and learn, share, and activate. Invite others from among our United Methodist and ecumenical neighbors to mobilize wise practices for both our personal and corporate lives.

On Saturday, October 13 from 8:30am – 2pm, Hopeful Earth Keepers and Christ UM Church are bringing to southern Minnesota a very special rally and education event.


Keynote Speaker

Dr. Tim.jpg

Rev. Dr. Timothy Eberhart, Assistant Professor of Theology and Ecology at Garret-Evangelical Seminary will lead a series of workshop sessions that explore how Christians are called to share in the healing of creation.  Participants will reflect on the spiritual implications of environmental degradation, examine the relevance of Christian beliefs to an ecological perspective, and explore practical ways people of faith are engaged in mission and justice for the good of the earth.


Our goal is this: to encourage everyone to work together as Earth Stewards (or Keepers) toward creating sustainable and gracious life.

We will worship. We will learn. We will cry and laugh and pray for God's Creation. And, we will activate our faith lives into Creation Care.

Workshops may include:  1-  Practical Activism here and now
                                          2-  Farming and Earth Stewardship
                                          3-  Youth and Creation Care
                                          4-  Helpful Worship & other Green Practices                                                                              5-  Our Faith Communities and Solar

Cost is $15 which includes lunch. Students may attend for free.  Please register through Christ United Methodist Church office, phone #507-289-4019 or e-mail
