About Us
Action Team
Welcome! This team brings together CCL volunteers across the country who are affiliated with the ELCA, the largest Lutheran denomination in the US. We work with individuals, congregations, synods, and the national church to build political will for climate action generally and to grow support for carbon fee and dividend legislation specifically. We encourage and support the formation of creation care teams/networks within congregations and synods.

Our team typically meets on the first Monday of every month, 7:00 PM Central Time. Check our "Events" for details.

🌍  🌎  🌏

Noni Strand (Chair Central States Synod/Lutherans Restoring Creation Mission Table) has begun gathering a cohort of congregations that will measure their carbon footprint reductions through Interfaith Power and Light's "Cool Congregations" program. 

“Cool Congregations Cohort”

The goal: connect efforts in ELCA synods across the United States to fulfill the memorial at the 2022 Churchwide Assembly to reduce GHG emission by 50% by 2030. By joining together and demonstrating our collective energy and impact, we will send a strong message to the ELCA that congregations care about Creation, climate justice, and measurable outcomes.

Watch our events page for notice of these monthly meetings, through December 2023. You can view the inaugural (March 2023) meeting at this link
