Action of the Month
Join our Creation Care’s Action of the Month Program to carry out a monthly task for the earth!
Purpose of the program:
Part of our spiritual calling for personal discipleship at home and work is to care for creation. Because the quantity of actions this implies can seem overwhelming, our Action of the Month Program provides one action to take each month. At the end of the month, you have a new habit. And if you find the basic action is something you already do, or if you find it not appropriate to your situation, or if you simply want to be a high-achiever, you can also find an advanced option to use as your alternative.
