PUMC Green Team

Formed in October of 2012, the PUMC Green Team has adopted the following as our Mission Statement to convey the intention and focus of this new small group:

“Educate and encourage ideas about how to live greener, and together act in ways that will lead all to become better stewards of God’s creation.”

5th Annual Really Really Free Market
Saturday, August 5, 2017
8:30 am – 3 pm

We all have “stuff” in our lives- things that take up space in our homes, that we just don’t need or want- but are still perfectly good and useful to someone. The longer it stays in the garage or the basement or the shed (or even under the bed??) the less “good”or useful it becomes, and eventually it goes to the garbage and ends up in a landfill. Not good for mother earth. 
Guess what? There is someone out there in the community who thinks that “stuff” is a treasure.
Then PUMC has just the ticket and it’s all about simplifying, caring, and sharing — for our home, our neighbors and our earth.
