Seasonal Planning
Among your preparations in these days, for the winter season we have special reminders and planning ideas of including creation in your worship, including notes for Advent, Christmas, Epiphany, and more.


Again for the 2014 season, you can click here to find the annual Advent daily calendar created by Environmental Ministries (Presbyterian Hunger Program) with a focus on caring for God's creation.  This daily calendar invites you to take a few moments each day for a simple action, practical change or reflection. You are invited to sing through the hymn It Came upon a Midnight Clear, to read, reflect, act, and connect with God’s good world.


Visit our preaching page for a video from Luther Seminary (St. Paul, Minnesota) chapel service, where David Rhoads gets to the heart of our identity as earth-people and our sacramental theology.

Celebrate any season of the year with this 30-Day devotional booklet:
Stewardship of Creation: A Thirty Day Discipline. Download and copy this daily devotional booklet. Each day has a scripture verse, theological reflection, fact about the environment, action we can take to address it, and a prayer. Make this available to each member of your congregation as a discipline during any season of the year.
