Sign the Commitment

Climate Caretakers commit to care for the climate through regular prayer and action that glorifies God and loves our neighbors. Will you join this community of believers journeying together to pray and act on climate change?

The Climate Caretaker Commitment

“As a follower of Jesus I seek to honor God and love my neighbor by committing to pray faithfully and act boldly to care for the climate.” Climate Caretakers receive monthly emails with specific prayer and action requests. Together as a community we pray for the climate and act to reduce our own personal impact.  See the following link for examples of past Caretaker actions.  

Pray

“For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous and his ears are attentive to their prayer” – 1 Peter 3:12

Prayer is one of the most powerful tools we have as Christians and an integral part of addressing climate change.  Each month the Climate Caretakers e-newsletter will offer specific climate prayer requests.  In addition to these monthly prayer themes, you can always be praying for the following:

  • Those suffering from climate impacts
  • The political will to reduce carbon emissions
  • Bold leadership from the Church
  • Peace, justice, and hope
  • Civility in the public discourse
  • Grace, compassion, and understanding
  • Forgiveness for our contribution to the problem

Acting in Faith: 100 Days of Prayer & Action

Acting In Faith - 100 Days V2Climate Caretakers is partnering with Young Evangelicals for Climate Action, Micah Challenge, and the CRC Office of Social Justice to plan and host Acting in Faith: 100 Days of Prayer and Action for Climate.  Here’s how it works.

  1. Sign the 100 Days letter to members of Congress. Just after the 100 days we’ll deliver an open letter to members of Congress, signed by thousands of evangelical Christians, asking them to act on climate change.  Add you name to the letter to make your voice heard!
  2. Commit to pray daily for the next 100 days. We’ll post brief prayers daily on our Facebook page between now and April 29.  Will you join us in praying?  For the new administration.  For climate action.  For the vulnerable and marginalized.  For bipartisan solutions.  For clean energy.  For protection of creation.
  3. Take action on Saturday, April 29 and Monday, May 1. Our Acting in Faith campaign will culminate in a conference in Washington D.C. called “Evangelical Climate Advocacy Days.”  On Saturday the 29th we’ll take part in the People’s Climate March—joining hundreds of thousands of others in the streets of Washington D.C.  Then, on May 1, we’ll send 80 evangelicals to Capitol Hill to advocate with their members of congress on climate change.  Click here to register to join us in D.C. and to really make your voice heard!  Even if you can’t join us, we’re aiming to have hundreds of people call their members of congress on that day.

#ForTheLoveOf Film

One of the founding members of Climate Caretakers, Micah Challenge USA produced this powerful film following four musicians to Paris for COP21. They went to learn about climate change and how it is impacting impoverished communities. ‪#‎ForTheLoveOf‬ is their story.
