Want to improve your church's energy stewardship but not sure how to get started? Hear wisdom and stories on energy efficiency from local church leaders, including Linworth UMC in Columbus. “Energy Efficiency from Audit to Action: Local Church Stories” is a webinar geared toward United Methodist church and conference trustees, facility managers, do-it-all pastors, and anyone with responsibility for stewarding church property.
The webinar will be held on Thursday, January 27, from 8:00-9:00 pm EST, and is free and open to the public. Speakers will include Rich Elliott, Facilities Manager, First UMC of Marietta, GA, who will share reflections on the theology of facility management; and Mark Barnett, Denny Devine, and Mike Sundberg of Linworth UMC, who will share their experience of transitioning to efficient lighting, including the ins and outs of renting a lift and changing fixtures.
The conversation will be hosted by Rev. Jenny Phillips, Senior Technical Advisor for Environmental Sustainability at Global Ministries.
