With the recent events in Las Vegas and Texs, we invite you to read this column from our Montana Synod Bishop Jessica Crist (pictured left). She includes a letter from the ELCA Bishops on gun violence from 2013 along with additional resources.
As part of our goal to care for creation, we're raising money to install an array of solar panels to offset our current electric demand.
We initially set our goal at 10% of the cost of a larger solar array, however after lengthy discussion with our primary grantor, church members and staff, and solar contractors, we have revised our goal to raise 50% or $33,814 of the cost of a smaller but still substantial 26.2 kW solar electric system. With this target in mind, we have just applied for a grant from NorthWestern Energy for the remaining cost of $33,813. We feel that by showing St. Paul’s commitment to financing half of the project cost that we will be a more ideal grant candidate.
As of 12/31/2017, we’ve raised $24,682 from 43 donors. Thank you to everyone who has contributed so far!
As part of our fundraising process, we’re also reaching out to friends and partners of St. Paul in addition to anyone who regularly utilizes our facilities in the hopes that they too might feel moved to contribute to this effort. In addition to the grant from NorthWestern Energy, we’re seeking a grant from the Montana Synod and are searching for additional funding sources. We hope our solar project can inspire others in the community to move towards renewable energy sources and serve as an educational tool for other Missoula churches seeking to fund their own solar project in the future.
Please consider making a contribution to this effort by writing "solar project" in the memo of your check. You may also choose to donate by debit/credit card or ACH on our website here; choose the "other" fund and write "solar" in the memo line.
Thank you for considering stewardship of our energy resources!
