Eco-Justice

Part of Rock Spring's commitment to a more just and healthy environment is our concern for and stewardship of the world God has made. The Eco-Justice committee works on local projects that help Rock Spring reflect good stewardship and offer educational opportunities for the congregation to grow in the care for the earth. As part of its work, the Green Team has replanted beds around the buildings with native plants, developed the gardens in the front of the Sanctuary that provide food for the Arlington Food Assistance Center (AFAC), and led the effort to use sustainable products on our campus.

Starting in September, 2016, the church made the move to green power.  That means that all the church’s electricity is generated by wind, solar, biomass, or other clean energy.  This move came about as the Property Board learned about the Dominion Green program and the benefits of making the change.  Green energy aligns with our values and commitments. Our eco-justice work is led by a “green team” of church members working with the Faith Alliance for Climate Solutions to plan and carry out our mission.   The team was formed in late summer 2016 and have conference calls approximately every two months to strategize and plan actions.    The group has focused on individuals moving to green power through Dominion Green in order to reduce our carbon footprint.
