2019 Green Team Committee

The current Green Sanctuary committee–informally known as the Green Team–kicked off operations on February 18, 2018.  Since then, we have:

  • Initiated and continued to refine a composting program at UUCC
  • Given a Sunday service presenting crucial ideas on climate, pollution, and energy
  • Mounted an “Ecological Services” display in the fellowship hall
  • Sponsored an evening talk with guest Jane Hiller
  • Sought to connect with others in the civic and denominational communities
  • Contacted elected representatives to speak for environmental protection

We’ve always got more ideas in the works!  Please feel free to join us at our regular meetings.  (See church calendar)
