The Walk’s planning team has prepared the resources below for Earth Day services. Please feel free to use these resources as-is, adapt them, or select parts (if credit is listed in our resource, please be sure to credit the creator in your bulletin as well). We hope that you’ll also participate in the Earth Day Campaign for a Fossil Free World that launches on Earth Day, April 22. The Minute for Mission talks a bit more about this campaign, and the goals are twofold:
- To invite people to participate in the PCUSA Walk for a Fossil Free World and the wider movement for creation justice
- To invite people to financially and prayerfully support this historic and bold effort taking place in June 2018
We hope your congregation will take part in celebrating God’s creation this Earth Day and supporting the PCUSA Walk for a Fossil Free World. This Earth Day Campaign for a Fossil Free World begins April 22 and goes until May 15. You could do this by introducing the campaign on Earth Day and taking an offering on a Sunday before May 13…or maybe you introduce the effort and your mission committee can decide to dedicate a gift to the Walk. However you do it and in whatever amount, we ask that you send any offerings toward this campaign by May 15.
Offerings can be made here or by sending a check made out to Presbyterian Peace Fellowship to 17 Cricketown Rd. Stony Point, NY 10980 (with “Earth Day” in the memo line). Gifts of all sizes are deeply appreciated and will be put to good use–toward medical supplies, food, and travel scholarships so that people from communities that are directly impacted by climate change can join the Walk.
