Environmental Ministry

At First Congregational Church we take seriously our responsibility to be stewards of God’s creation.  In addition to recent extensive weatherization and energy saving lighting, our church installed 360 solar panels on the roof of our facility.  To our knowledge this is the largest solar installation on a worship facility in Massachusetts and certainly the largest non-municipal solar array in the city of Melrose.  Along with conscious recycling, we also have a sustainability station in our Narthex which is regularly updated to encourage parishioners and the public about how they can both help the environment and save money while being good stewards of their homes and businesses.Evironmental Ministries 1
