Worship Resources

Green Teams are encouraged to talk to their faith leader about incorporating creation care themes into their worship services. This can include planning a creation care service around Earth Day (April 21) and/or incorporating creation-themed songs/hymns and prayers into weekly worship. The resources below provide worship materials such as prayers, litanies, poems, and sermon suggestions. If you have a good resource you’d like to share with us, please email Program Associate, Hannah Shultz, at hannah@gipl.org
