Euclid Avenue UMC’s Green Action Team is focused on making our both our congregation and community more sustainable. The Green Actions Team lead the church through the installation of a geothermal heating and cooling system, 99 solar panels, a permeable brick parking lot, and a butterfly way station.
In 2015, the Green Action Team hosted the Earth Revival: Loving God, Living Green, and Liberating All. The event included a worship service led by Rev. Dr. Otis Moss III from Trinity United Methodist Church as well as workshops regarding a broad range of sustainability issues.
In 2014, the Green Action Team recently hosted a “Solarbration” to celebrate and bless the installation of the 99 solar panels on the church roof and the creation of a monarch butterfly way station garden.
They are beginning conversations to create a Green Academy that will help other congregations and not for profits plan to not only retrofit their buildings with new green technologies, but also to develop biblical, theological and liturgical frameworks for their work.
