South Church recognizes that as Christians, we are called to care for all of creation, including the animal kingdom. We also recognize that many individuals and families forge deep relationships with the animals in their life. We honor and celebrate these special relationships with our Animal Ministry.
The Animal Ministry formerly began in the fall of 2012. It has already engaged in a number of powerful initiatives within the congregation:
- On-going pet food drive to benefit families who are temporarily unable to afford food for their cats and dogs.
- Field Trip for families to the Humane Society to learn about the importance of pet rescues and adoptions.
- Blessing of the Animals worship service, which provides an opportunity to gather with our pets and receive an individual blessing for health, happiness, and love.
