The Green Team focuses on Environmental Justice Issues and the protection of God’s Creation. Established in 2018 following a Lenten Series, the Green Team encourages Hope Church to provide education, service and advocacy on Environmental Justice issues and to engage the congregation in making sustainable choices. The Green Team has presented information on reuse and recycle, creation justice, environmental issues, and making our world more sustainable thru Adult Forums. Adult Forums are paused due to Covid 19, however the Green Team continues to encourage opportunities for recycling and reusing as well as providing information on sustainability in print. We support “green” choices in our lifestyles.
Hope UCC has a long-time commitment to care for creation and environment as a priority. We have: installed a commercial dishwasher in our kitchen to decrease use of disposable tableware; ongoing printer ink cartridge collection; replaced light fixtures with LED lights and utilize energy saving material whenever possible; enhanced our property with an outdoor spiritual campus open to the community at large; provided website links to recycling opportunities; and our Benevolent Committee holds Rummage Sales to reuse and recycle household and clothing items.
