Green Steeples

November 2, 2004 by

St. Mark’s Presbyterian Church in New Port Beach, Calif. is finishing a new construction project and trying to get their church classified with the U.S. Green Building Council.

“It’s a basic stewardship matter for us, caring for creation, and in our corner of the world we do what we can,” St. Mark pastor Gary Collins said. “We clearly have an opportunity with this project to leave as gentle an imprint on the ground and the land as we can.”

The $8 million building project will leave an impact of a different kind on the community, showing a concern for the environment that’s sadly a rare sight in many churches.
