Bethany Goes Green!
In an effort to take better care of the resources that God has so richly given us, we are excited to share ways that we here at Bethany are making efforts to lower our carbon footprint. We have proudly instituted Recycling here at Bethany for items that are used in the church and offices. Aluminum, cardboard, clear plastic, glass, paper, and Styrofoam items are accepted and must be separated. In the main building, there are green bins located below the coffee station table in the Contemporary Sanctuary that are labeled with the items to be placed in them. In The Parish House there is a box for paper in the administrative assistant’s office and bins in the break/kitchen area for the other items.
Please do your best to help Bethany go green and do our part to save the planet!!
