UCC Approves Resolution on Climate Change

The United Church of Christ General Synod 2017 has just overwhelmingly approved the Climate Resolution calling on clergy and congregations across the denomination to take action to protect the environment, and churches are lining up to stand behind it publicly.

 Thank you to  Skyline, to our  NCNCUCC conference,  and to our UCC General Synod, for their  full support for this resolution. We stand with the rest of the world and commit ourselves to protect and defend the earth for the generations to come, because we are called to be lovers of creation.

Rev. Laurie  Manning  is  the NCNCUCC  conference rep for climate justice,  and a member of the UCC Council on Climate Justice.  She has already planted a sign in front of her church in support of the resolution and the Paris Climate Accord. “This sign expresses who we are now and how we pledge to live.”

Churches interested in the sign can download it here.

  1. Hi,
    I attend the First Congregational Church of Glen Ellyn in Illinois and am so thrilled the UCC General Synod has declared it’s solidarity with the Paris Accord. I love your sign and see that you can download it, but I’m wondering if your congregation is selling pre-made yard signs. I would love to have one and perhaps FCGE would be interested also.
    Thanks for considering this request.
    Hilary McGrath
