Caring For Creation in Indiana

Lyle_PV_blessing-700x300.jpg

Care for creation’s health is integral to spiritual life and social justice. Hoosier Interfaith Power & Light (H-IPL) brings Indiana faith communities together to promote renewable energy and energy efficiency, as a faith response to climate change.  

H-IPL assists congregations to form green teams, invites congregations to work together regionally, provides educational programming and tools to help reduce their reliance on fossil fuels, and offers ways to advocate for better public policy. Congregations are saving money through energy efficiency measures and by producing their own clean energy through solar panels.

We invite you to work with H-IPL to protect God's good creation and promote thriving, sustainable communities. READ MORE
