Here’s an example of our Social Justice Moment in our worship service.

 

Friends,

In the midst of this unrelenting heat wave and predictions of more to come with unchecked climate change, let’s come together to build a powerful environmental movement that will better our communities and shape our future for generations to come.

Join us this October 25-26 at New Psalmist Baptist Church in Baltimore for the 2016 Green the Church Summit. This gathering will bring together clergy and lay leaders in the African-American church from across the country for two days of prayer, workshops, and building of the Beloved Community. Register now for the $50 early bird pricing!

Don’t miss this unique opportunity to gather in fellowship, enjoy prayer and worship, and learn about important topics like greening your church facility, advocating for better policies, supporting local environmental justice struggles, and crafting your own green sermon.

If registration costs or transportation could prevent you from joining us, please let us know and we’ll be happy to help.

See you in Baltimore this October!
