The Green Team celebrates its seventh year of ministry

“I appeal to you therefore, brothers and sisters, on the basis of God’s mercy, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your reasonable act of worship.” Romans 12:1

This year we invite you to “Live the Love” and join us in service as we kick off our seventh year of Ministry!

Formed in 2017, our mission is “to reveal the connection of our congregation and community to God’s presence in the natural world, by fostering a culture of environmental reflection, engagement and stewardship.”

What are some ways, big and small, that you can participate in service to God’s creation?  There are so many!

Make small changes in your own life.
