Gift MATCH  We're getting closer to our giving goal!

Dear creation care advocate,

Don’t miss your chance to double the impact of your gift! Thanks to two generous donors, if we meet our $1,500 fundraising goal today they will match all gifts to help us reach our final goal of $3,000.

Will you join the momentum?

Your generous year-end gift will be used to equip people like you in congregations to do the important work of caring for creation and pursuing action on climate change.

We’re excited about what 2019 has in store! We plan to:

  • Arrange at least 30 meetings between CWP members and province/state and local officials, in partnership with local ecumenical creation care groups, to encourage green energy policies at every level of government.
  • Host viewings and Bible studies based new Creation Care Bangladesh film series in every CWP region. 
  • Connect congregations to new opportunities to go green through solar or other sustainable energy practices.
  • Join with the Christian Reformed Centre for Public Dialogue to mobilize Canadian congregations for advocacy during this critical season of policy making in Canada. 
  • Kick off a new Cooler/Smarter Series for CWP members who want to get serious about reducing their personal carbon footprints.
  • Partner with US Green Buildings Council towards 50% renewable energy for the city of Grand Rapids by 2030.
  • Pilot a new Sacred Grounds Project with the Plaster Creek Stewards initiative.

Your voices and actions will be key in the year ahead. Please partner with us to maximize our impact in 2019!

We look forward to advocating, worshiping, stewarding resources, and learning alongside you in 2019!
