ECO Ministry oversees the programs for Church Recycling and provides education regarding the care of God’s creation, encouraging all to be good stewards of the Earth.
Opportunities to serve & programs include:
Paper (no cardboard) can be deposited in the two large yellow and green containers in our parking lot. All other items such as eyeglasses, ink and toner cartridges, and cell phones may be deposited in marked containers at the bottom of the main staircase.
At least twice each year, volunteers from the congregation spend a few hours on a weekend day to clean up Rose Tree Road. Watch the church bulletin or the calendar for the dates!
ECO Sunday Event
Each year in April, a special topic of ecological/environmental interest is offered at a Sunday Adult Forum with presentations, displays, and hands-on activities.
Share tips for an eco-friendly life in the weekly Sunday worship Bulletin.
Movie Night & Pot Luck Dinner
A movie of ecological/environmental interest is presented as a fellowship event. Attendees bring a covered dish to share.
ECO Field Trips
Events in the past have included Eagle Nest watching at the Conowingo Dam, Nature Preserve Hikes in the Heinz Preserve and other one day destinations focused on Nature walks.
Look for Eco Ministry’s Bulletin Board and Recycling Center at the bottom of the main stairwell and the recycled bench they donated outside the main entrance.
In 2010, following a major renovation project, Reformation Lutheran church received the ENERGY STAR certification. This distinction recognizes buildings nationwide that use less energy and cause fewer greenhouse gas emissions than similar facilities. Reformation is pleased to demonstrate our commitment to environmental stewardship.
