The Earth is the Lord’s and everything in it. — Psalm 24:1
We are committed to caring for Earth and encourage other churches and individuals to join us in being better stewards. Here are some of the actions we are taking as an Earth Care Congregation:
Devoting elements of worship to celebration of God’s Creation.
- Deepening connection to Creation with outdoor nature walks.
- Replacing our roofs using high Solar Reflectance Index (SRI) asphalt shingles.
- Replacing old air conditioning units with new high efficiency models.
- Installing high-efficiency lighting and motion sensors on lights.
- Recycling, by members taking recyclables home to their city recycling bins.
- Using reusable cups and flatware at our events instead of plastic.
- Educating about the alternatives to using plastics.
- Maintaining our prayer and butterfly gardens.
- Sharing our facilities with non-profits and local small businesses.
