Through education, awareness, and activism, the Environmental Committee reminds Glenn of the importance of being responsible stewards of God’s creation.
Glenn has implemented effective recycling and composting initiatives as well as a “no idling” policy for our school car-pool lane. We work closely with Georgia Interfaith Power and Light and other local groups to make our facilities more environmentally friendly. Seasonally, the committee hosts environmental speakers, volunteers in the International Rescue Committee’s community garden, and serves organic, nutritious meals at Wednesday Nights at Glenn.
To learn more about how the Environmental Committee guides its actions, read the United Methodist Social Principles and the UMC Bishops' letter "God's Renewed Creation: A Call to Hope and Action."
And watch this video produced by Glenn members on our recycling initiatives!
The Glenn Environmental Committee meets on the first Wednesday of each month from 7:35 - 8:35 p.m. in room 208 of the Church School Building. All are welcome.
For more information about Glenn’s Environmental initiatives, contact Environmental Chair Lynn Speno.
