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:

  • Recycling

  • Road Clean-up

    Road-Cleanup-Reformation-SignAt 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.

  • ECO Tips

    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

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.
