Green Team

The Green Team strives to help members better preserve and protect God’s precious creation.  As outcomes of faithful discipleship, our goals include encouraging sustainable living, reduction of consumed resources, and working toward a clean and healthy environment for this generation, as well as for those that will follow us.  The protection of creation is an integral part of our faith.

“The earth is the Lord’s and everything in it; the world, and all who live in it, for God founded it on the seas and established it on the waters.”    -Psalm 24:1-2

  • New Solar Panel Installation Happening At Marshfield School Forest

    Caring for Creation and our Community

    The School District of Marshfield recently received a solar panel grant to install a solar PV system at the School Forest along with an interactive display.  The purpose of placing a solar panel array at the School Forest is to educate students on renewable energy as well as offset utility costs for the non-profit school district.  A Leadership Marshfield Team proposed the “Sustainable Marshfield” Solar Campaign.  Community members and businesses are being asked to consider a donation to offset expenses not covered by the grant.  The Green Team/Social Concerns agrees it is a valuable project for the community and would like Faith Lutheran Church to join the list of sponsors.  To make a contribution, use a BLUE offering envelope, write “Green Team Solar Project” on it, and send it to the church. Donations will be combined as one donation from the church.
