We are working to become a Green Sanctuary.  This is one of the ways we work toward a vision of healthier, more sustainable future.  To contact our Green Sanctuary committee, email green@esuuc.org.

Green Committee Events

Special Movie Event

On Friday night, June 22, 7PM, the Green Congregation will be sponsoring an intergenerational movie night! We will be showing the movie Wall-E.
“WALL-E, short for Waste Allocation Load Lifter Earth-class, is the last robot left on Earth. He spends his days tidying up the planet, one piece of garbage at a time. But during 700 years, WALL-E has developed a personality, and he’s more than a little lonely. Then he spots EVE (Elissa Knight), a sleek and shapely probe sent back to Earth on a scanning mission. Smitten WALL-E embarks on his greatest adventure yet when he follows EVE across the galaxy.”
Please join us!!

Green Committee: Bottle Caps Needed

The Green Committee is planning a garden project that will require a great number of plastic bottle caps. Rather than discard any you may find yourself with, please bring them to church. We will put a collection box in the community room. When we have enough, we will create a beautiful surprise! All colors are needed! Thanks for your help.

 

 


 

Earth Hour – MARCH 24, 2018, 8:30 TO 9:30 PM
WHAT IS EARTH HOUR? – AN HOUR LONG EVENT
Around the globe, millions of people, businesses, and landmarks set aside an hour to host events, switch off their lights, and make noise for climate change action. This year Earth Hour is at 8:30pm on 24 March 2018.  RUN BY YOU

Earth Hour belongs to you. Each year, millions of you come together to make Earth Hour happen. Coordinated by WWF and other volunteer organizations, together we’re shining a light on the need for action on climate change.

CREATING IMPACT
Earth Hour is more than an event. It is a movement. Over the last 10 years, we have achieved massive environmental impact. Together with your support, we’re helping change laws, lives and our planet! How great is that?

 

 


Unitarian Universalist congregations that have been recognized as a Green Sanctuary live with a deep awareness of our climate crisis and the deep environmental injustices of our time. They commit to four practices, grounded in Unitarian Universalist principles:

  • Environmental Justice: We partner with marginalized communities who are hit first and hardest by environmental crisis.  In partnering with these communities we are able to address human and environmental needs at the same time.
  • Worship and Celebration: As we work together towards a cleaner, more just and sustainable world, worship inspires our work and reminds us of what is most sacred and most true.
  • Religious Education: Our workshops and programs for all ages shape attitudes and build practices that are sustainable and spiritually-grounded.
  • Sustainable Living: We treat the world more gently by using fewer resources and being mindful of the choices we make, both as a congregation and as households.

We invite all who share these values to join us on this journey of connection, sustainability, and hope. Contact a Board Member to get involved. And join our broad and growing movement for climate justice with Commit2Respond.
