Climate Action Team

The Climate Action Team was established in the Fall of 2023 by a vote of the congregation. 

Our mission is to inspire our congregation to work on the climate crisis.  

We aim:

  • to provide education for ourselves and others
  • to reduce our individual and church carbon footprints
  • to partner with other groups working toward similar goals
  • to promote environmental justice  

We meet monthly at 11:45 am on the third Sunday of the month, following the church service.  ALL ARE WELCOME! 

Examples of activities:

  • Save the date! Earth Day is Monday, April 22, 2024. Some of us will be attending the Extinction Rebellion celebration that day from 4-6 PM in downtown Boston. You can, too! Register with XR Boston.

  • We will lead a special Earth Day worship service on April 21, 2024 with informational fair to follow, providing education and ways for the congregation to get involved in Climate Action.

  •  A group of us met on February 2, 2024, with the aide to our State Representative Kate Lipper-Garabedian to encourage her to support 4 important climate related bills in an upcoming vote.
  • Our team hosted a New Year’s Day Walk for the church and friends at Breakheart Reservation.
