Trinity’s Green Team was born in 2007 as a direct outcome of a faith formation series on Care of Creation. Trinity Council adopted and recently recommitted to the Covenant for Care of Creation which identifies these 4 actions (which guides Green Team activities):
TLC congregation will
1. Study and learn about God’s marvelous creation and our responsibility to God and our place in creation;
2. Pray, preach and worship so that our environmental activities grow out of biblical faith, reverence, and love for God’s creation;
3. Make congregational and individual lifestyle changes to better model our concern and care for creation;
4. Get involved in our communities, our state, our nation, and the world, to promote policies that foster justice and the wholeness of God’s creation.
Green Team annually coordinates the Recycling Center and the FEAST Garden, and provides educational pieces for Trinity’s publications and various ministry groups. We coordinate with and support the important work of Trinity’s Energy Management Team.
Our dreams are to eliminate Trinity’s use of Styrofoam cups, establish raised bed gardens in the space adjacent to the FEAST garden, launch a composting station, and establish an advocacy team for greater community involvement.
