The AFF for Oak Grove’s Earth Day celebration on Sunday April 24th will be the Green Committee’s walking tour of different sites around the church where we are moving to clean, non-polluting renewable energy and clean water. The tour will show our LED lights, solar panels, wind energy, electric vehicle charging, rain gardens, air source heat pumps and all the insulation and sealing of our building to cut energy use and switch to carbon-free sources. We will also show how we are educating the next generation.
Find out what we are doing to protect God’s Creation and pass on a livable Earth to our kids and grandkids. Find out how you can do many of these things in your homes and help our church become net zero in electricity, heat/cooling, and transportation.
