Building a Green Congregation

UCC Seneca Valley believes strongly in protecting the environment and caring for God's creation. We continue to grow our efforts to become a green congregation. Our rain gardens function to purify water and help control runoff from our parking lot. Our solar panels help produce the electricity that is used by our church. Whatever energy we don't make ourselves, we get from wind power so that we use 100% renewable energy to power our building. We retrofitted lighting in our building so that we use energy efficient light bulbs and LED lighting wherever possible. We worked with Montgomery County to plant 20 tress on our church property. But we know that God's creation doesn't stop at our property line so we also regularly work to clean up a section of Middlebrook Road `that we have adopted as a congregation. And we've begun to partner with local advocacy groups such as Interfaith Power and Light, The Chesapeake Climate Action Network, and Montgomery County Faith Alliance for Climate Solutions

We continue to find new ways to go green as a congregation and as individuals. We are always eager to hear ideas about how we can continue to  be good stewards of the earth and keep our planet green!
