Earth Care Congregations Environmental Application

To become certified as a PC(USA) Earth Care Congregation, the church fills out the Earth Care Pledge and tracks its commitments to earth care in the areas of worship, education, facilities, and outreach. Download the form  (which includes the Earth Care Pledge and the congregational self-audit) to become an Earth Care Congregation.

  1. What is called an "Earth Care Checklist" in a recent PW Bible Study, we think is actually the Earth Care Congregation checklist that is part of the Earth Care Congregation application (above). Also see the “Earth Care Congregations: A Guide to Greening Presbyterian Churches.” http://www.presbyterianmission.org/media/uploads/environment/pdf/eccguidetogreeningchurches2013.pdf

  2. I am looking for the Earth Care Congregation Checklist written about in the Presbyterian Women Bible Study Guide for 2014-15. Jane at the NC office at the phone # given on the earthcare.org website gave me your website to find this checklist. I still do not find the checklist which would be most helpful for the Presbyterian Women's group in our church, First Presbyterian Church of Puyallup, WA. Thank you for any help you can give me. gnakenyon@gmail.com
