Environmental Action Group
The Fellowship has made a strong commitment to environmental sustainability. The MVUUF Environmental Action Group focuses on engaging the congregation in a variety of environmental and sustainability issues, including ethical eating.
Some of our current projects include:
- Water Quality Testing along Wolf Creek
- Leading Worship services that focus on environmental issues
- Conducting an energy audit of our facility with follow-up corrective actions
We maintain a wetland at the east end of our property and use it for educational purposes.
We also provide a paper recycling bin in our parking lot for use by members, friends, and neighbors.
The Environmental Learning Book Club meets every other month to read and discuss informative books related to environmental issues. We will meet next on Monday, June 19th at 7:00 p.m. We are currently reading Half Earth, by Harvard biologist Edward O. Wilson. According to a summary of the book in Amazon, “In order to stave off the mass extinction of species, including our own, we must move swiftly to preserve the biodiversity of our planet, says Edward O. Wilson in his most impassioned book to date. Half Earth argues that the situation facing us is too large to be solved piecemeal and proposes a solution commensurate with the magnitude of the problem: dedicate fully half the surface of the Earth to nature.”
