The “Green Sanctuary” designation is awarded by the Unitarian Universalist Association when a congregation has been able to meet certain requirements in their facilities and practices for maintaining a healthier, more sustainable future. UUCC has not yet achieved that goal, but we are working towards it as our resources permit. This is the vision that we will strive to address in order to become a Green Sanctuary:


  • Environmental Justice: We partner with marginalized communities who are hit first and hardest by environmental crisis.  In partnering with these communities we are able to address human and environmental needs at the same time.
  • Worship and Celebration: As we work together towards a cleaner, more just and sustainable world, worship inspires our work and reminds us of what is most sacred and most true.
  • Religious Education: Our workshops and programs for all ages shape attitudes and build practices that are sustainable and spiritually-grounded.
  • Sustainable Living: We treat the world more gently by using fewer resources and being mindful of the choices we make, both as a congregation and as households.
