Climate Justice

For 2020, KUMC and Keller United Methodist Women are joining together to promote stewardship of our Earth. As stated in the Book of Resolutions of the United Methodist Church: "...we understand that God is calling each of us to respond to (the impact of global climate change) and that as a denomination we cannot hope to transform the world until we change our way of being in it."

We have decided to focus our response in segments throughout the year: air, land, fresh water and salt water. We'll give an overview of current trends and will challenge you to make a difference.

Our focus for the first quarter of 2020 is Air. Click for details and a kid-friendly carbon footprint survey!
