Earth Care Pledge at Silver Spring


As one of the steps for Silver Spring to become certified as an Earth Care Congregation by the Social Justice and Peacemaking Unit of  PC(USA), our session discussed and affirmed the Earth Care Pledge on May 28, 2015.




Certification 2016


In February 2016, Silver Spring became certified as an Earth CAre Congregation by PCUSA's Environmental Ministries, good through February 2017. This honor speaks to the great commitment that SSPC has to caring for God's earth. To become an Earth Care Congregation, SSPC affirmed the Earth Care Pledge to integrate environmental practices and thinking into all facets of its church life and completed projects and activities in the fields of worship, education, facilities, and outreach.

Meatless Mondays

Meatless Monday addresses the prevalence of preventable illnesses associated with excessive meat consumption.
