· To become better stewards of the land and facilities under our
management and to reduce our carbon footprint.

stewards of their homes and personal resources and reduce their
individual or family carbon footprints.

monies up for ministry uses.

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

Using renewable energy will not only save on electric bills, but is a benefit for the nearby community as well. Installing solar will help to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and global warming. Rooftop solar will also promote the use of renewable energy in the immediate neighborhood.
The presence of solar panels should ignite student and parent interest in clean energy.This addition will also create real opportunities for learning and teaching.

The upfront cost for this system - 227 solar panels generating about 127,000 kilowatt hours per year - is $165,921. Please consider donating to this worthwhile cause...click on the button for easy online donations!
