Eco-Action Team Meeting


December 5, 2019
8:00 am - 9:00 am
As we enter late autumn, one’s mind turns to the harvest and the many delights that nature shares with us, including beautiful fall tree color, apples, and pumpkins, to name a few. Be sure to take some time out to enjoy the season’s beauty with a walk in the woods!
During the past few months, the Eco-Action Team has been busy: we’ve stepped up our activities to reduce the church’s impact on the earth, while also planning for the future.  We’ve started with some practical steps, such as reducing the waste produced at recent St. John’s events (such as Oktoberfest) by using dishes instead of disposable plates and silverware, and composting the food waste instead of throwing it into the garbage. This is just the start; we plan to expand this practice at future events, and we’re organizing a church-wide lent pledge activity to find practical ways for all of us to reduce our contribution to climate change.
If you’re interested in learning more about how you can take part, please join us at our next monthly meeting – it will take place in the Lounge on Thursday, December 5, at 8:00 am.
