Please JOIN US in the
Pearl Faith Community

It takes a community to restore and protect our waterways. We know how blessed we are to live in this beautiful place. Water is a large part of our daily enjoyment, recreation, local food, and even our livelihoods. We all want to do our part to restore the health of our sacred waters and protect them for future generations to enjoy. One of Lynnhaven River NOW’s goals is to help people of faith recognize and fulfill their responsibility for the stewardship of these gifts. Take the pledge now and become part of the Pearl Faith Community. We will provide you with advice and assistance, help you with community resources, and inspire you with a beautiful banner for your sanctuary or meeting space.
Simple Acts of Stewardship
All faiths are welcome, and it is free to become part of the Pearl Faith Community. All we ask is that within a year your congregation will complete the following:

  • Make a difference inside your buildings.
    Examples include installing occupancy sensors, programmable thermostats, sealing ductwork, recycling at events, greening your coffee hour by purchasing reusable or biodegradable products
  • Make a difference outside your grounds.
    Examples include replacing turf grass with mulched beds and native plants, reducing pesticides and fertilizer, resurfacing parking lot areas with permeable pavers, installing rain barrels and rain gardens to reduce storm water runoff.
  • Make a difference with an educational activity
    Examples include inviting Lynnhaven River NOW to give a presentation before or after services, host a Day of Service for the community and include area environmental organizations, host a lecture or film series on relevant topics, host educational activities for day school or Sunday school students.
