Georgia Interfaith Power & Light is seeking volunteers with professional experience in architecture, engineering, building construction, and related activities who are willing to be trained to conduct energy audits of church buildings, synagogues, and mosques. The energy audits are part of GIPL’s effort to address air pollution and climate change by helping faith communities reduce their energy consumption. GIPL has a matching grant program that will give a congregation up to $25,000 for energy improvements made to its buildings. GIPL will conduct regional training sessions for volunteers. “Teams of newly trained volunteers, each with a volunteer note-taker, will look at a building from top to bottom to list places where energy efficiency improvements can be made,” said the Rev. Woody Bartlett, GIPL’s president. Each walk-through audit takes about two hours. Professionals interested in helping, or who just want to find out more, may contact Bartlett, 404-298-6688 or wbartlett@mindspring.com

Food Pantry Forum

Food Pantry Forum, July 25, 10 a.m., 458 Ponce de Leon Avenue.  Our hosts are the Grace United Methodist Church and the United Methodist Board of Global Missions with coffee and treats provided by United Way.  

We plan a robust program with a presentation -- Being a Client Choice Pantry, Developing Partnerships, Where We Get the Food We Give.  After the presentations we will have time for Q & A and conversation as we continue to learn from each other. 

Through the generosity of the manager of Lowe’s at Newnan Crossing we will have a great door prize, a refrigerator!  And, delivered to your location! So be thinking if this could help your pantry take advantage of fresh produce from gardens and prepared food from restaurants or catering services.

We need to know if you are coming. Email ecarter@rccatl.org
