Looking to the future, we would like to do more networking with other groups that work on environmental issues. We also would like to create one or more rain gardens on the property when finances are available. A kitchen upgrade with a commercial dishwasher would allow us to stop using disposable dishes, again dependent on the issue of funding.
While looking to the future, we also continue with many projects that were part of our accreditation process. We continue to have worship services built around environmental themes. We continue our community garden, sharing produce with local feeding programs. We publicize the local Clean Your Streams event each year, encouraging church members to participate. Religious Education at the adult and youth level incorporates environmental themes each year. We would like to add more native plants to our landscaping. We will continue to make energy conserving changes to our building as needs are identified and funds become available.
Ideas from the congregation for new projects and additional ways to become better stewards of our environment are always welcome. Our meetings are open, and we would welcome new members.
