The Green Team’s purpose is to “raise awareness of and advocate for the care of creation”. Our mission is to support and encourage creation care ministries, raise awareness, model creation care advocacy consistent with ELCA teachings in our faith communities and public life. We are encouraged by the LAMPa and ELCA priorities which support this ministry effort in PA and nationally.
The Northwestern Pennsylvania Synod authorized the formation of a group of volunteers to focus efforts on what it means to be good stewards of God's Creation. This group is known as the NWPA Synod Green Team.
