There is a growing movement in Lancaster, PA among the faithful. In August 2020 we hosted a self-guided walking tour of Lancaster City congregations that had implemented projects on their ground to reduce pollution. Click here for the Audio Tour to learn about these inspiring projects. Join our local hub meetings and put your fingerprints on programming in the region or hear from local organizations about the various ways to get more involved with their efforts in the region. We meet roughly one time per month on a Thursday at 4:30 pm. Email [email protected] to learn more. 

For this upcoming Spring 2021, we are organizing a tree give-away to congregations to plant on their grounds. To express interest in learning more, click here

Congregations in Lancaster County are eligible to receive $500 of "seed" funding to help start and sustain a creation care ministry or "Green Team". To qualify a congregation needs to:

  1. Send a team of preferably 3 or more members to IPC's Faithful Green Leaders Training
  2. Sign the IPC Partner Congregation Pledge
  3. Commit to installing or maintaining a "green infrastructure" practice that has direct positive water quality impact like planting trees, installing a cistern or rain garden, or conservation/native plant garden (see Lancaster Menu for Action)

Special thanks to all of our One Water Partnership partners and pledge-signing Congregations
