UUFC's Initial Accreditation: 2004

A Green Sanctuary is a congregation that lives out its commitment to the Earth by creating a sustainable life style for its members as individuals and as a faith community. Sustainable living is not about our material comfort (though these choices are an important part of the overall life style); it is about choosing to live in a way that nurtures life, builds relationships, and rejects material consumption as the sole determinant of happiness.


In response to the UUA Seventh Principle Project, UUFC initiated action to form a Green Sanctuary committee in October 2004. UUFC  received Green Sanctuary Accreditation from the Unitarian Universalist Ministry for Earth in 2006!  See the Letter!
