Georgia Interfaith Power & Light Update


Greetings GIPL Friends,

The first annual Coastal Green Team Summit is one month away, and we can’t wait to see you there.  On Saturday, October 20, GIPL will be at First Baptist Church St. Simons Island and spend the day discussing a variety of ways to green your community of faith.  All people of faith from congregations across the state are invited to join us for this interfaith celebration featuring an inspiring keynote address: Profoundly Located: Cultivating a Sense of Place, by Candler School of Theology professor, Dr. Jennifer Ayres, educational workshops, and a farm-to-table lunch.  Registration is only $15!  So, register yourself and your Green Team/Creation Care Team today.
