Is your church active in earth care or interested in becoming more involved in being stewards of God’s earth? Use “Earth Care Congregations: A Guide to Greening Presbyterian Churches” to find ideas for earth care projects.
To become certified as Earth Care Congregations churches take the “Earth Care Pledge” and complete activities and projects in the fields of worship, education, facilities and outreach. Submit your application (see below “getting started”) January 1-February 15 of the calendar year in which you’d like to be certified. Five congregations in Monmouth Presbytery have been certified since 2010.
