For thine is the solar power

Bethel Lutheran Church, Cupertino, Calif., installed a 150-solar panel system that will cut carbon emissions and decrease electric bills by $900 to $1,200 a month.

This effort can be monitored via daily reports on Bethel’s Web site.

Every church in th world should install solar or wind on their property.

God gave us the earth to shepherd and we need to do our best to shepherd the earth.Who better to be a good example to or neighbors than Lutherans / Christians /Belivers.

Churchs are 100 year life institutions and will profit from renewable energy in so many ways.

How can we encourage the Senod to help our fellow churchs follow this example.

We are Lutherans and own a solar business and I personally will bend over backwards to help any church in LA to follow the example that  Bethel ha begun. Thrivemt also help us Lutherans in o many ways and thank you thrivent for paveing the way for the loan help.
