NOTE: The annual enrollment/recertification period is January 1-February 15. You may begin submitting your application at the start of the new year.  Applications are accepted through February 15.

To become certified as a PC(USA) Earth Care Congregation in the first year, a church fills out the Earth Care Pledge and tracks its commitments to earth care in the areas of worship, education, facilities, and outreach. The Earth Care Congregation First Year Application (excel form) is to be submitted between January 1—February 15, by online form which can be found at: http://surveys.pcusa.org/s3/Earth-Care-Congregation-Application.

To become re-certified as a PC(USA) Earth Care Congregation, a church tracks its continued commitments to earth care in the areas of worship, education, facilities, and outreach. Progress in each of the areas should be marked since the time of the last certification. The Earth Care Congregation Recertification Application is to be submitted between January 1—February 15, by online form found at http://surveys.pcusa.org/s3/Earth-Care-Congregation-Application.
