As a faith community, we recognize the sacred nature of creation and our responsibility to be good stewards of what has been entrusted to us. In response to the Genesis Covenant issued by the Episcopal Church, St. Thomas’ Church broke ground on a solar farm, nestled in the northwest corner of the campus, in the summer of 2020. This solar array is projected to provide 85% of the electrical needs for the campus.
We give thanks to the Craig Family for providing the lead gifts for this project in celebration and memory of Jean L. and Cassin W. Craig.
We also give thanks for the impactful gifts given by:
Amy and Chris Roak
Chris and Tim Russell
St. Thomas’ Flower Guild
Dana and Craig Toedtman
Walbridge Family Foundation
