Spring Youth Event
May 15, 2015 @ 7:00 pm - May 17, 2015 @ 12:00 pm
The GreenFaith Shield is an environmental merit badge for faith communities. Over the course of a month, a congregation takes steps to address one environmental issue and to encourage their member to take steps to do the same at home. Participating congregations offer prayers during worship on the specific environmental topic, provide a religious education session on the topic, take basic steps to ‘green’ the operation of their own facility, and encourage their members to take simple steps at home. GrrenFaith provides resources to support all these activities, including a checklist for households. To date GreenFaith has an Energy Shield and a Water Shield. In 2015, GreenFaith will be releasing a version of its Shield programs designed for confirmation class service projects. During this event, Green Faith will share resources enabling participants to organize a team in their congregation to earn a Shield. We will do this at the beautiful setting of Camp Lebanon with exciting program, music, games and relaxing free time. Hope to see you there!
