The Regional Council of Churches of Atlanta, the  ecumenical Christian organization for greater Atlanta, welcomes churches, faith-based and secular nonprofit organizations, individuals, businesses, and others to join us for fellowship, to network with one another, and to explore ideas and issues of importance to the community. We work together to promote the common good, magnify the work and witness of the church, and help establish the kingdom of God throughout our region, nation, and all of creation.

Creation Care in Lent

Lent can be the perfect time to strengthen our resolve to care for Creation. The Rev. Leeann Culbreath has written on this theme, reflecting on Ash Wednesday and her coal ash work in South Georgia. Georgia Interfaith Power & Light shares Lenten resources. One may speak to you about integrating Creation Care into your Lent season. See the resources here. 

A Plea for Life
