This summer, 2014, marks the 5th year of certification for 14 of PC(USA)’s certified Earth Care Congregations. For five years, these churches have been growing ever deeper in their ministry and witness and for five years, the PC(USA) Earth Care Congregation continues to grow nationally. At 139 congregations as of this writing, PC(USA) Earth Care Congregations demonstrates the passion people have to care for God’s creation as part of Christian discipleship and living out their faith in the world.

Read the stories at the blog posts below to hear about how each of these congregations has made earth care a central part of their worship, ministry, and witness!
