NDPC embraces environmental stewardship and sustainability practices as a witness to faith in Christ. We are called to be stewards of God’s wondrous creation, to reduce our sanctuary’s environmental impact and to raise awareness among our members of environmental challenges we face today as a global community. NDPC has been identified as an “Earth Care Congregation” by the Presbyterian Church USA’s Environmental Ministries program. This certification program recognizes the work of NDPC to green its facilities, worship, education and outreach ministries, and also provides a helpful structure for planning additional progress every year moving forward.
To that end, the Creation Care Team seeks to support all ministries of NDPC to reduce their environmental impact by helping with recycling, sustainable purchasing, and green programming of all kinds. NDPC’s Creation Care also adopted a sustainability policy to help ministry teams embrace our shared responsibility to steward all the gifts God has given us.

Green is Good
We encourage all efforts to make our church facility “green” by reducing energy use, improving energy efficiency, and reducing water and solid waste.
