Earth Stewardship Team

The mission of the Earth Stewardship Team is to inspire and enable First Church members, friends and affiliates to take faithful, robust, and effective action in response to the climate emergency unfolding in God's creation. We seek to mitigate the social injustices of the severe impact of climate change on the poor in our local community, in Greater Boston and throughout the world.

The Earth Stewardship Team has been active. Since beginning in 2010 we:

  • Installed 124 LED light bulbs in our sanctuary, partnering with our Buildings & Grounds Committee and New Generation Energy to save $7500 and 27 tons of CO2 each year.
  • Partnered with Rockville Market Farm to have local produce shares for parishioners and friends delivered weekly to the Parsonage. 
  • Instituted composting of all coffee hour lunches and refreshments.
  • Took part in the Lenten Carbon Fast, to receive daily tips to reduce our individual energy usage substantially.
