Global Ministries EarthKeepers is a training program that equips U.S.-based United Methodists to launch and grow environmental projects in their communities. Topics include eco-theology, antiracism, community organizing, and project planning. All participants plan a project during the training. The current EarthKeepers in East Ohio are listed below and they would be happy to discuss Creation Care in the church with you!
Unnatural Disasters: Creation Care in the Age of Climate Change | online March 17
Floods. Hurricanes. Wildfires. Droughts. As the planet warms around us, causing disasters such as these to become more extreme and more common, how can people or faith take better care of God’s creation? This series of three documentaries will take you to places around the country experiencing unnatural disasters in the age of climate change, followed by discussions on how the church can help. This event is free, but you do need to register in advance to get the link to join.
