EcoCommittee

St. Peter’s is committed to caring for our community, God’s creatures, and the environment. The St. Peter’s EcoCommittee, a group of several dedicated volunteers, works to help St. Peter’s be more eco-friendly and educate our parishioners about how they can get involved.

Currently, the EcoCommittee is focused on:

  • Energy savings in the church building,
  • Creating a more eco-friendly coffee hour,
  • Establishing green cleaning practices throughout the campus, and
  • Connecting faith to sustainability through themed EcoTips designed to inspire congregants to take the message home and spread it to their friends and neighbors.

The EcoTips appear in abbreviated form in the Sunday Bulletin. Here on the website, they are fleshed out to allow readers to connect the faith message behind the actions and to put the actions into context by understanding the environmental problems we, as a world community, face and the solutions that are being developed.
