Why should my congregation join Michigan IPL?


Whether you’ve been a member in the past or you’re totally new, signing the Covenant lets us know that your faith community is committed to the work we’re doing together– from bringing energy efficiency to congregations to advocating for the systemic change we need to prevent catastrophic climate disruption. By getting involved in our work, you help build the interfaith movement to protect Creation at a time of great urgency.

What difference does it make?


Though it may not feel like much, affirming your membership connects you with thousands of Michiganders and tens of thousands of others affiliated with 39 other state IPLs. Our collective and coordinated actions– from advocacy campaigns to Earth Day activities– DO make an impact.

Your participation is also symbolic. Congregations who publicly celebrate the actions they’ve taken to become better stewards of Creation, or who speak about the importance of Earth care as a part of their faith identities, show their communities what they stand for. And by sharing your stories with us, you help inspire and equip other congregations to bring their energy to this cause.
