Environmental Action encourages, advocates and assists Village members with projects for sustainable living and ecological justice for all creation.
The Environmental Action Committee (EAC) is committed to making the church more environmentally aware and sustainable as an institution by reducing it environmental impact and by practicing, modeling and teaching faithful and responsible stewardship of God’s creation. Its call is to promote earth-keeping within and beyond the walls of the church. Its hope is to raise people’s awareness and to stir their conscience so that they might incorporate creation care into their daily living. Throughout the year, EAC oversees the ongoing recycling efforts of the church and offers environmental education opportunities through Village University, Sunday school classes and its bulletin board.
The Environmental Action Committee is always looking for volunteers to join its committee and help with activities and events. They typically meet the third Tuesday of every month at 5 p.m. To find out more, call Jerry Rees, Chair of EAC at 913-568-4250 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
From the beginning, mission has always been at the heart of Village Presbyterian Church. The story of this faith community is filled with untold hours of service to our neighbors both near and far, of dedicated disciples practicing the works of mercy commended by Jesus Christ.
If you were to speak with any of these servant leaders among us, they would tell you that their participation in the mission of the Church has made all the difference — that their faith came alive when they gave their time and talent in service to others. Christ promised that when we serve others, we are in fact serving God.
