God Sent Me to Preserve You

Genesis 45:1-8 NRSV

And now do not be distressed, or angry with yourselves, because you sold me here; for God sent me before you to preserve life. (Genesis 45:5)

God is in your plan just as He was in Joseph’s; no need to worry about what the situation looks like.

In keeping with our 2018-2019 Connectional Theme, “Environmental Justice,” we will focus on specific prayer and action points on the topic of Pollution throughout this quarter.


Create opportunities for youth in congregations and schools to be taught the importance of caring for the earth, and how doing so will secure a safer planet for their future. Include the topic of pollution in bible studies and other avenues of learning in the church.

Commit to being involved in community initiatives to educate persons and create legislative change in the disposal of materials harmful to the environment.
