Creation Care Liaison: Kevin Chupp
Joined MCCN’s Green Patchwork Congregations: February 2014

At Yellow Creek Mennonite Church, Goshen, IN, spring brings trail maintenance to mind. Thanks to a gift from a lifelong member’s estate, this large, rural congregation owns 67 acres of land. They have some trails but are working on making them more accessible so that the church and local community can use them more often. “We are talking about putting up signs, making trail guides and scheduling events,” MCCN liaison Kevin Chupp explains. The congregation includes an avid birder willing to share his gifts, so birdwatching may be among the offerings.

Another resource that Yellow Creek has in abundance is roof space, so they are also looking into solar panels.
