Lake Oswego United Church of Christ has a longstanding commitment to the environment. Recognizing God’s creation and love of the earth, we acknowledge that we have a commitment to care for our planet, its resources, and all living creatures. The current global climate crisis is a reminder that we must act quickly to limit the effects of climate change on our environment. To that end, we have made specific commitments in our congregational life to protect and nurture our planet and its resources. Among our recent activities are becoming an Earthwise congregation, constructing a rain garden and bioswale on our property, and making commitments to limit waste and become more energy efficient in our common life.
