Environmental Stewardship

One of the most central tasks we've been given by God is to take care of the world around us. As a church community, we live into this commitment daily: 

Waste Reduction

Come to an event at First CRC and you won't see paper or styrofoam cups but ceramic mugs which is one way to lessen the waste as a church community. 


We love coffee and we especially love the J.J. Bean coffee we sip each week. This is a way for us to enjoy coffee with a conscience as it limits the social and environmental impact of coffee bean production.


We compost food scraps. Climate Witness Project

Climate Witness Project 

We are participating in a CRC initiative called the Climate Witness Project which seeks to educate our church family and encourage them to make sustainable choices in their daily activities.
