Young Christians launch new sustainability practices for the congregation.
Newly graduated marine biologist Kristy Potgieter brought Chasing Coral to Northreach Baptist Church and screened the film to a room of her fellow church-goers. The event, coined “The Christian and Creation,” focused on the responsibility one felt as a Christian to defend God’s creations. The group, made up of mainly young science-minded Christians like Kristy, had a lively discussion about this theory and how they could take steps to minimize their negative impact on the environment. In a few short weeks following the event, Kristy witnessed her church take some of the steps that the group had outlined in their discussion, including adding a recycling bin, using less single-use plastic cutlery and coffee cups, and reducing the use of air conditioning.
