Green Team

CJC’s Green Team meets the second Monday of each month to discuss and plan activities that promote environmental sustainability and resilience. We aim to promote action at the individual, congregational, interfaith, state and federal levels by reducing our environmental footprint, as well as by positively influencing policy.  We collaborate with Oakland Mills Interfaith Center congregations to make our facility more environmentally sustainable, and to provide educational opportunities for ourselves and the surrounding community.  Click here to attend our monthly meetings via Zoom.
