What is a Green Team?
A Green Team can be called many different things, but basically it a group of individuals within a congregation who are committed to environmental responsibility and creation care.
Starting a Green Team in your own faith community is a way to begin to make changes, while finding the support from others as you work to make a difference.

- “The newly formed Christ Lutheran Church Earth Justice Advocates is a group of church members who are dedicated to promoting the care of the earth which God has created. Some of the ways we are exploring to do this within our church community are through educational programs for youth and adults, energy audits, purchasing resources for use by church groups, encouraging practices of conserving and using energy-saving measures in our church buildings and programs. We welcome anyone who is interested to join us at our monthly meetings which will be announced in the church bulletin.” – from Christ Lutheran Church’s Sunday bulletin
