Earth Day Resources

4 April 2022

An ad hoc committee of Community of Christ members (now the North American Climate Justice Team) coalesced at the 2019 World Conference, focusing on a project that became the Climate Change Series—online lectures and related discussions. The series is sponsored by the Greater Pacific Northwest USA Mission Center in liaison with the Earth Stewardship Committee.  

Earth stewardship is an ongoing focus in Community of Christ, seen in the Sacredness of Creation in our Enduring Principles. Check out this list of resources from the Climate Change Series as your congregation considers observing Earth Day on April 22.
