God created us to be co-stewards of the world and everything in it: the land, air, water, creatures - including ourselves. Recycling is just one small way that we can live out this call.
Our recycling center is located in our gathering area. It is accessible anytime if you have a key, or during the pastor's office hours (M & Th: 10am-1pm, W:1pm-4pm, and Sunday: 9am-noon).
Some of what we collect is recycled locally. The bulk of it is shipped to recycling centers around the US in partnership with Terracycle.
