PEC is a national eco-justice network that cares for God’s creation by connecting, equipping, and inspiring Presbyterians to make creation care a central concern of the church.
Presbyterians for Earth Care (then Presbyterians for Restoring Creation) was founded in 1995 as a national, grassroots organization to support people of faith working towards “environmental wholeness with social justice.” PEC helps the church to fulfill its current environmental policies, to create new policies and practices, and to energize and educate church members about eco-justice, the well-being of all human kind on a thriving earth.
PEC is governed by a volunteer Steering Committee that includes six Regional Representatives. A paid part-time coordinator serves the Committee and the membership. Active volunteer committees are essential to PEC’s work and members are welcome to participate.
WHAT DOES PRESBYTERIANS FOR EARTH CARE DO?
Presbyterians for Earth Care cares for God’s Creation by:
Connecting members through a grassroots network of people seeking to keep the sacred at the center of earth care, advocacy and action both inside and outside the walls of the church.
Equipping members with resources, ideas and information for a shared journey toward a healthier planet by growing and sharing theological understandings and perspectives on eco-justice issues.
Inspiring members through stories of individuals and groups who have responded to the sacred call to care for the earth—stories told person to person at events, and by newsletter, email, social media and devotions.
