Green Team

The Missions of
St. Paul Lutheran Church and St. Paul Early Childhood Center Green Team:
· To become better stewards of the land and facilities under our
management and to reduce our carbon footprint.
· To encourage our members through education to become better
stewards of their homes and personal resources and reduce their
individual or family carbon footprints.
· To reduce our costs in energy consumption and free those
monies up for ministry uses.
· To become a beacon in the community on environmental
responsibility and spread those methods while glorifying God.

The earth is the Lord's and the fullness thereof, the world and those
who dwell therein, Psalm 24:1

The upfront cost for this system - over 200 solar panels generating about 127,000 kwh per year - is approximately $175,000. Please consider donating to this worthwhile on the button for easy online donations!
