What is a Green Congregation?
Green Congregations are part of a growing movement among faith communities of many denominations to recognize the importance of environmental stewardship in all aspects of life--at home, at church and at work.
A Green Congregation is one that addresses issues of environmental stewardship and social justice. Green ministries take many forms and have many names, but all share a commitment to care for God's creation and to live more sustainably on the Earth.
A Green Congregation may work on programs to reduce pollution, environmental degradation and depletion of resources. Caring for creation includes moderation in lifestyle, living sustainably with the land, and living out the universal ethics of justice, mercy and truth.
If you're interested in starting a green ministry at your congregation, contact us for assistance and ideas or check out our links to on-line resources or past presentations on getting started.
