St. John Lutheran Green Team Survey
The St. John Green Team has some exciting ideas for activities at St. John and in our local community and we are requesting your input about your interest and willingness to participate. We also want to learn about your interests. As a faithful community at St. John, "we celebrate the vision of hope and justice for creation, and dedicate ourselves anew. We will act out of the conviction that, as the Holy Spirit renews our minds and hearts, we also must reform our habits and social structures." (quote from "Caring for Creation: Vision, Hope, and Justice" (1993) Social Statement of ELCA pg 8). We are continuing to work on recycling and reducing waste at St. John, but we have some new ideas.

Our survey is divided into three parts. The first and second parts include activities at St. John and the third part asks whether you are interested in some local field trips. The activities at St. John, would have to be coordinated with all our other programs and outreach efforts. They all require some people to take the lead an organize and maintain the program.
