Earth Day Faith Celebrations

Earth Day is a movement that has given voice to an emerging consciousness of the unity of creation and the 'new creation' that is the resurrection of Jesus. The mutual love between God and God's people calls us to love and care for one another and all of creation.

Interfaith Power and Light is hosting Faith Climate Action Week, April 15-24. The nine-day national initiative surrounding Earth Day (April 22) connects, inspires and motivates climate action within faith communities across the U.S., offering a plethora of tools, tips, and guides for revamping or starting your faith-based climate program.

Faith Climate Action Week provides an opportunity for every size church, masjid, synagogue or temple to join the national discussion on climate. Interfaith Power and Light offers everything a congregation might need for the week of events including materials to help you write a creation care sermon, join a national prayer, host movie screenings, and so much more!
