The earth in some grassCelebrate Earth Day Sunday

Earth Day is  celebrated on April 22 each year, and Presbyterian churches are urged to celebrate Earth Day Sunday near this date. In 2014, Easter is April 20, so you may wish to designate April 27th as Earth Day Sunday, or another date that works for your church.

Sunday Morning SustainabilityThe National Council of Churches Eco-Justice Program produces Earth Day Sunday resources each year.With sermon starters, prayers, and great information on a variety of energy issues, this ecumenical, 14-page resource should be a great starting point for your congregation's celebration.

The 2014 resource on "Holy Water" is ready! To download, click here.

Earth Day Archives

Use the links below for materials to examine past Earth Day themes with your congregation.

The National Council of Churches Eco-Justice Program produces Earth Day Sunday resources each year.  This year’s theme is “Where Two or More are Gathered: Eco-Justice as Community.”  Download the resource, which explores the importance of community and shares information on how churches can work in community for eco-justice in the areas of food, water, and air.  Materials include sermon starters, a bulletin insert, and ideas for church action. 


Please email me, Katie Holmes, to share your church’s plans to celebrate Earth Day Sunday.  Read about Presbyterian Churches’ 2010 Earth Day Sunday events.


  • Earth Day Sunday materials for 2013 are still in development at National Council of Churches' Eco-Justice Program. My understanding is that the theme is Sustainability, how each part of preparing for and attending church can be an expression of caring for God's earth. I will post materials as soon as they are finalized! by Rebecca Barnes PC(USA) Staff on 02/12/2013 at 10:55 a.m.
