Vernon Church Wins Recognition For Envionmental Efforts

Dec 27th, 2011 | By | Category: Energy

While some faith groups decry the notion of global warming, St. John’s recently received a $1,000 grant from Interfaith Power and Light, a San Francisco-based national multi-faith organization that promotes religious groups’ responses to global warming. St. John’s had replaced original lighting and cut electricity use by more than 20 percent.

Interfaith Power and Light also recognized a New Mexico Unitarian church, Methodists in North Carolina, and a synagogue in Indiana. About 550 different congregations entered Interfaith’s contest, the Cool Congregations Challenge.
