Green Faith Ministry

 

Our Vision
To honor and respect our Oneness with all creation by being extraordinary leaders in environmental stewardship.

 

Our Mission
The Green Faith Ministry is committed to awaken in each one of us the respect and attention our beloved Mother Earth deserves.  Recognizing that environmental stewardship is a spiritual value, we are making a difference through education and exemplary Living.

The environment is where we all meet; where we all have a mutual interest; it is the one thing that all living beings share. CLF is part of the Green Faith program that inspires, educates and mobilizes people of diverse religious backgrounds for environmental leadership. We are the first Religious Science Church and the first Church in Arizona to be certified by this national and international program!

How You Can Become Involved

The GF core team invites you to share your ideas and suggestions for sustainability projects.

We need leaders who will organize and implement our projects in the community. You are encouraged to get your friends and family or any volunteers involved in those projects. Anyone in our congregation who wants to volunteer is welcome. We also invite everyone to think about your daily activities and how you can help reduce waste, re-use items you already purchased, preserve water or electricity, use more environmentally friendly products, prevent harm or injury to wild animals, etc.

Educate your loved ones! If all of us are mindful and make conscious choices, we are already very much involved! Remember: "For the first time in recorded human history, we have the fate of the whole planet in our hands." (Chrissie Hynde)

Among those activities are back-to-school drives, holiday gift drives and food drives. Recipients of our efforts have included Sand Dollar Discovery House, Habitat for Humanity, Aunt Rita’s Foundation, Maricopa County Pediatric and Neonatal Units, and Homeward Bound just to name a few.

Prison Ministry

 

Our Vision

We see a world where inmates are viewed as people and are encouraged to integrate into society despite their criminal past, and where they accept responsibility for affecting others. We envision a society where crime no longer has a place and then, when prisons and jails open up, people will join together in freedom. We see a world where violence is forgotten and criminal justice is in the past.

 

Our Mission

The CLF Prison Ministry is dedicated to recognizing inmates as the pure spirits that they are and allowing them to see that they are not broken. Through this action, inmates can transform themselves into better men, women, husbands, wives, brothers, sons, daughters, parents thus becoming successful and productive members of society.

This is done through consistent personal communication, positive encouragement and being an advocate for a criminal justice system that upholds restorative values in helping individual lives and communities flourish.

How You Can Become Involved

We encourage spirit-centered congregants of Creative Living Fellowship to correspond on a consistent basis with inmates eager for a responsible dialog. Primarily via letter, but phone contact, email where applicable and personal visitation encouraged.

Register to visit with inmates for food visits or one-on-one visitation.

Actively engage in discovering and implementing classes that can be delivered to the inmates in order for them to have a better sense of self-worth and promote the positive Spirit within them.

Work with the various department of corrections to find out how to apply these classes.
