Greening Your Church logo

Join with local church leaders to learn how congregations -- in your community, and around the country -- are "greening" their churches with action to care for God's creation. This meeting will include a brief time of worship, and opportunities for people to share environmental stewardship projects that have worked well in their church. We also will discuss barriers to environmental programs within churches, and examine some practical solutions and resources to overcome these obstacles.

The workshops are scheduled from 7-9 PM at four Front Range locations. You may come to any session that is convenient for you.
