The EcoFaith Ministry Team’s mission is to call and equip ECLC to become watershed disciples, to grow awareness of and care for the environment. Here are ways you can become engaged in Caring for our Environment:
- Sunday, January 28th, BEFORE THE FLOOD: ECLC’s EcoFaith team invites you to a free showing of the award-winning documentary Before The Flood on Sunday, January 28th following 11am worship. This film follows Leonardo DiCaprio on a worldwide exploration of climate change and its drastic impact. Chili lunch will be served before the movie! RSVP to DeeDee.
- Let’s increase MN’s Renewable Energy Standard to 50% by 2030! Cleaner sources of electricity enable us to act out our faith in practical ways that will have long lasting effects. It is time for people of faith to help ensure a new higher standard is set in Minnesota! A faith-based coalition (Protestant, Catholic, Jewish, Islam,) is urging lawmakers to increase the state’s Renewable Energy Standard Join the EcoFaith in expressing your support of clean energy and climate justice. ECLC EcoFaith Team has committed to gathering 200 signatures! If you haven’t already signed, add your signature this Sunday asking decision-makers to make clean energy and climate justice priorities.
- Learn about Solar Savings. Even after significant changes to Minnesota's programs in 2017, homeowners and faith communities that install solar can still benefit from incentives that put solar installations within reach financially. For customers of Xcel Energy, the window for an attractive rebate program will close within a few months. MNIPL works with residential developers that are part of our Just Solar Coalition and support key values of climate justice.
