Green Team

As a "Creation Care Covenant Congregation," Faith acknowledges our responsibility to care for Mother Earth, and every living thing in God’s wonderful creation. Meeting on a regular basis, the Green Team helps Faith plan and implement changes that decrease our impact on the earth. (Click on the "Journals" tab above for Nancy Kennedy's "Sustainable Products List," Rachel Sly's "Composting: 101" article, and "Winterizing for Comfort and Efficient Living.")
