Visit our seasonal planning page from June to August for some resources. 


Season of Creation -- It's Coming Up!

Now is the time to be planning for the Season of Creation.  Most congregations will begin on September 4 this year.  The appointed readings and focus themes for 2016 (year C) are Ocean Sunday, Animal Sunday, Storm Sunday, and Universe Sunday. 
Here is the page with readings and liturgies.  Other resources will also be available. 
Espanol!  Watch especially for new materials translated into Spanish!
 
(See the banner links at the top of the page for other options and practices on celebrating a Season of Creation and a variety of locations and settings.)
