Go GREEN For Jesus!

As a way of being good stewards of the earth, Mount Olivet and Lab School
have entered a partnership that will allow us as a church family and commu-
nity take better care of our world and use our resources more wisely. In the
coming days, you will begin to notice changes throughout the building from
trashcans to multi-receptacles designated for TRASH/RECYCLING/
COMPOST. We ask that you:

             Take time to look at pictures/symbols, read and familiarize your-

              self with the different types of waste.

 

               Take home the recycling literature or take just a few minutes to

               attend one of the Youth Go GREEN for Jesus presentations. 

 

               Deposit each type of waste in its correct disposal container. 

 

By following these simple steps, we can reduce our waste footprint and
better take care of the earth. We can also free up more resources to do
GREATER MINISTRY for the Kingdom!
