Express your Love of Creation by participating in the Three Great Loves Tree Planting Campaign!
Trees, one of God’s precious gifts, provide us not only with beauty, but we depend on them for the air we breathe and the stable climate we inhabit. Through your campaign donation, more of these beautiful gifts of creation will be planted and nurtured. In addition to your financial donation, consider having a tree planting service and blessing.
We encourage not only our churches to participate, but individuals also. Every effort is important whether you are motivated to fight climate change, contribute to the U.N.’s Sustainable Development Goals, or love trees.
In expanding the scope of our collaborative efforts in 2020, the Ministry of Environmental Justice for the United Church of Christ has partnered with Interfaith Power and Light to make this tree planting campaign part of their Faith Climate Action Week. Many of the following tree-planting options come through Global Ministries, a shared ministry of the United Church of Christ and the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ).
