MOSS is interested in serving our neighbors and the environment they live in.  It is our belief that God speaks through creation and that as followers of Christ we should be about caring for it and loving our neighbors.  

...whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.
— Jesus


Our Mission

In addition to experiencing the natural world through recreation and solitude, we desire to do a better job caring for the treasures that we have been given by participating in natural disaster cleanup projects, river cleanup projects, tree plantings and more.  This work is also a service to our neighbors so they might see hope after a natural disaster strikes or enjoy the benefits of clean streams and air.  We desire to care for places that provide a place of beauty where people can experience a connection to God through the natural world.   

You answer us with awesome and righteous deeds,
God our Savior,
the hope of all the ends of the earth
and of the farthest seas,
who formed the mountains by your power,
having armed yourself with strength,
who stilled the roaring of the seas,
the roaring of their waves,
and the turmoil of the nations.
The whole earth is filled with awe at your wonders;
where morning dawns, where evening fades,
you call forth songs of joy.
You care for the land and water it;
you enrich it abundantly.
The streams of God are filled with water
to provide the people with grain,
for so you have ordained it.
You drench its furrows and level its ridges;
you soften it with showers and bless its crops.
You crown the year with your bounty,
and your carts overflow with abundance.
The grasslands of the wilderness overflow;
the hills are clothed with gladness.
The meadows are covered with flocks
and the valleys are mantled with grain;
they shout for joy and sing.
— Psalm 65: 5-13
