Green Ministry

The STEP Center of the LCM puts a strong focus on the environment and caring for the beautiful Earth we inhabit—we consider ourselves a Green Ministry.The LCM STEP Center founded the EcoHouse Network, a sustainable living program for students of SU and ESF interested in limiting their carbon footprint and sharing their commitment to caring for the planet with their peers. The EcoHouse Network nurtures a community garden, holds service events, and maintains an educational component.


Fall of 2012, the STEP center also co-hosted the Sustainable Community film series to encourage dialogue about different sustainability challenges. Five award-winning documentaries were screened, and followed by dinner and conversation led by faculty members.
