End of Year Giving Ends Tonight

As we prepare for 2021, we need your financial support to continue and to accelerate our work to engage people of faith in the care for the earth and all who inhabit it.   

The CARES Act, Congress authorized, gives individuals the ability to give up to $300 to a nonprofit of their choosing for a tax deduction in 2021. Please consider SCIPL in your giving. Donate here. 

Thank you for your support and Happy New Year!

GreenFaith Circles (Partner Opportunity)

GreenFaith is holding a training series in January for people who are interested in beginning GreenFaith circles in their communities.  This training would also work for people who have GreenTeams or other creation care groups who are looking for more skills, ideas, connection, and engagement.  A circle could be in your faith community, neighborhood, workplace or town.

The focus of this training will be teaching people organizing skills, and helping people connect with others across our global GreenFaith network who are also in the process of starting GreenFaith circles, or who already have some experience. 

 

This will be a 3 part training. Participants commit to all 3 sessions. 

  • Wednesday, January 13th, 1-2:30pm US Eastern Time/9pm East African Time
  • Wednesday, January 20th, 1-2:30pm US Eastern Time/9pm East African Time
  • Wednesday, January 27th, 1-2:30pm US Eastern Time/9pm East African Time

This will be the first time GreenFaith offers this training, so they will likely ask you to give feedback after each session. 

 

Please sign up for the training here: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSdqjj8wEChsejPythcnC3AJzUwyKtZNTgUlc2OjNYKATBjsSg/viewform
