Caring for All Creation
Welcome to Earth Ministry
Earth Ministry is a non-profit organization committed to engaging the Christian community in environmental stewardship. We work in partnership with individuals and congregations to respond to this great moral challenge through education, individual and congregational lifestyle choices, and organizing for social change through environmental advocacy.
While Earth Ministry is rooted in the Christian tradition, we actively engage all religious communities on climate and energy issues through Washington Interfaith Power & Light. Our programs and resources are in use across the US and Canada and available to all.

Climate Workgroup Hearing - Olympia
Dec 06, 2013
House Hearing Room A - State Capitol Campus, Olympia, WA
- Climate change is the most important issue that humans have faced, and the preservation of our sacred world depends on our actions today. This is our chance to speak directly to Governor Jay Inslee and the other members of the Climate Legislative and Executive Workgroup (CLEW) in support of strong climate action in Washington state! CLEW was established through an environmental and Governor’s priority bill passed in the 2013 legislative session. It is tasked to recommend policies to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to meet the state’s emissions limits. Over the next four months we have a chance to make our voices heard in support of large, meaningful actions on climate that will revitalize our economy with green energy jobs and join other west coast states in leading the way in reducing global warming pollution. You can help by coming to one of the hearings and talking with Governor Inslee and the Climate Workgroup and by submitting written comments.
