Presbyterians for Earth Care (PEC)’s Greening Your Presbytery project focuses on the presbytery as the organizing level to reach churches about creation-friendly ways of teaching, preaching, reaching out and operating their buildings. The project utilizes Presbytery Earth Care Teams in order to “engage and support congregations in integrating creation care into their church’s Christian witness and ministry.”
PEC has prepared a Presbytery Earth Care Team toolkit that contains a step-by-step process for starting an Earth Care Team at your Presbytery. The toolkit has examples and other resources to assist a team through the five-step process. The toolkit also includes a list of additional resources for a variety of topics to be used at the presbytery level.
PEC holds monthly Greening Your Presbytery ZOOM calls with a specific theme on the second Tuesday of the month at 7:30 PM Eastern, 4:30 PM Pacific. Participants are invited to ask the speaker questions and discuss in breakout rooms how they might implement the theme of the meeting in their presbytery.
