Earth Day 2019 has come and gone, but God calls us to love and care for Earth every day! Please continue to leverage these resources throughout the year, to keep your awareness and commitment strong and growing!
Below is a list of links with bulletin inserts, Sunday School ideas, and other materials - downloadable for your use!
Also, here's a fun tip for "green" name tags, especially for Earth Day or Spring events:
1 - Use seed packets as the base for your name tag,
2 - Design and print a sticky label with the title, place, and date of your event
3 - Buy seed packets and large safety pins
4 - Stick the labels to the instruction side of the seed packet, so the picture side shows
5 - Pin the safety pin through the packet
6 - Have markers at the ready for participants to print their name
