In 2013, Session approved a Green initiative for PCM with a plan for GreenFaith certification. We created a Green Team and joined other Morristown churches in becoming green by changing the habits of our church as a whole and our members as individuals. God has given us this beautiful earth, and we must all join together to preserve and protect the world and its people.
An environmental leadership program for houses of worship, GreenFaith provides extensive resources, one-on-one coaching, support and networking opportunities to help with holistic and successful environmental programming. Institutions must offer eco-themed worship services, incorporate environmental themes into education, offer interfaith and inter-generational events, "green" their building operations, and advocate environmental justice.
As we move forward upgrading and renovating church buildings, we want to be as environmentally conscious as possible. How can we conserve energy, save money in the long run and have the results we want? That is what Being Green is all about.
Everyone is invited to join the Green Team as we implement this Green initiative.

Energy Star rated appliances use 10- 50% less energy and water than standard models over their lifetime, making a big difference for the environment and your budget.
