The new official Lay Servant Ministries course, Loving People and Planet in God's Name, is here! This is a great resource based on the previous UMW/United Women in Faith course Climate Justice.
The Northern Illinois Net-Zero Task Force is working to offer it in the 2023-24 program year in each district's Lay Academy.
Posted here is everything you need to offer the course at your district Lay Academy in either a two-Saturday format designed for Northern Illinois Conference, or the original format of five two-hour sessions, such as for Lent.
