Green Church Search!

We want to hear your “Great Green Congregation” story! Tell us what your church is doing for the earth, and the NCC will share your story to inspire others. We’ll also select congregations to receive a $500 prize to support its environmental work. We are looking for congregations that are:
  • Advocating for environmental justice at the local, state and national levels
  • Teaching about environmental justice and health in their churches and communities
  • Hosting “Green Cleaning” fellowship activities
  • Promoting wilderness protection through trips, education, and worship
  • Supporting alternative transportation to worship
  • Conserving energy and using green energy sources
  • Reducing waste in all aspects of church life
  • Engaged in their own unique, location-specific eco-justice ministries
Please share the story of your church’s environmental ministry in 500 words or less. What do you do? How did you get started? What have you achieved? What goals lie ahead? Include:
  • your name
  • your contact email
  • your daytime phone number
  • the name, city, state and denomination of your church.

Send your story and information to Jenny Phillips by Wednesday, April 30th, 2008. Then watch – your church might be the next Great Green Congregation!
