The RUC Green Group works in four areas to raise awareness within our congregation and throughout our community. We strive to put our principles of environmental stewardship into practice.
Awareness – Increase our awareness through worship, programs and communication
Education – Make environmental stewardship a central element in our educational activities
Practice – Make our building and grounds more energy efficient and environmentally friendly
Outreach – Support social justice and mission activities that support the environment
Rockville United Church is certified as both an Earth Care Congregation from the National Presbytery USA and as a Green Justice Congregation from the United Church of Christ.
This year we are embarking upon an energy audit of our building and beginning a master plan for our grounds. We also host educational programs and are participating in the UCC’s 4/1 Earth Mission.
