Vine's Environmental Stewardship

"The earth is the Lord's, and everything in it; the world, and all who live in it;" Psalm 24


Vine has long been a strong supporter for protecting our environment.  We continue to teach, share, and learn ways we can keep our land, air, and water clean, healthy, and usable for all of God's creation and for generations to come.  Our Earth is our only home and we must do our part to preserve and protect it.  "and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, to love kindness and walk humbly with our God?" Micah 6:8.
