Sharing Christ’s love, seeking justice and healing for all God’s creation

As Christians, we are called to care for all creation, land, air, water, plants, animals, people - all of it. At CCB-UCC our  commitment to environmental justice is deeply embedded in our church’s life. 

 

Our commitment to environmental justice in this church is a core value. We have hosted the Green Screen movie program, an ongoing movie and discussion program focused on environmental education and activism. We have a strong reduce, reuse, recycle program, greatly reducing our environmental footprint through composting, and the reduction of paper products in our wonderful meals.

In 2018, a 15.6 kW solar array on the roof of our Fellowship Hall was commissioned. Through 2022, this array had generated nearly 71,000kWh of power offsetting a total of 42.5% of our facility’s electrical consumption and prevented over 100,000 pounds of CO2 from being released into the environment by conventional utility power plants.   Funds to support this project were raised by our enthusiastic members who are committed to environmental sustainability and justice.

CCB-UCC’s commitment to environmental justice is made real through the following ministries and projects.

Justice for Clean Water

CCB supports clean water initiatives in two ways. Ongoing support of water collection to those without access to safe water to wash, clean, and combat the spread of the coronavirus is led by member Greg Panzica's through his Peace Nick program. His Water Crisis program collects and distributes bottled water to communities such as Flint who have suffered lead in their water, and the Detroit community subject to water shutoffs. Support is also provided to the People's Water Board Coalition, who are on the ground in communities working tirelessly to ensure families have running water in this time of crisis and beyond.
