  • Bike/walk to church and in the community.  During the Summer, fourth Sunday of the month is a designated all Church Bike Ride.
  • Church recycling:  We recycle all cardboard, glass, and recyclable plastics (labeled #1 thru #5).  There are containers in the kitchen, administrative office and other locations as needed.  We also use paper cups rather than Styrofoam because they are easier to recycle.
