Creation Care

Memorial UMC is a member of One Home One Future, a multi-faith campaign to strengthen vitality, relevance, and community connection across generations in local congregations nationwide. We are part of a visible effort to invite creation care and climate action, no matter if you are just getting started or already engaging.
Initiatives take on site:
  • Recycling in every room
  • Refillable water bottle station
  • LED lightbulbs
  • "Turn Off Lights" and "Please Close Door" signs to save energy.
  • Increasing use of real cups and utensils instead of single-use items
  • Using up what we have instead of buying new (e.g. hospitality items and furniture)
  • Xeriscaping with more to come.
  • Composting is in discussion for the campus
Creation Care Leader: Taylor Youngblood, City of Austin Zero Waste Block Leader



"We are women like you, a powerful, fearless force driven by God's love and united in sisterhood. With a focus on women, children and youth we act for justice and transform communities. Join us, because love in action can change the world."

Throughout the year we collect donations for the following ministries:

  • Wesley School (day care on our campus): healthy snack and diapers 
  • Harris Elementary (across the street): underwear & sports bras

Supporting and caring for those who are homebound or in desire of connection through visits, cards, phone calls, flowers, and more.
