About St. John's Presbyterian Church
St. John’s Presbyterian Church is a true presence in Berkeley, California, and is socially, educationally, artistically, and spiritually committed to the community. Founded in 1907, St. John’s has a long history of philanthropy and social engagement. After moving from their historic location to a larger building in the 1970’s, St. John’s decided to open up their church as a community center throughout the week that hosted a childcare program for low-income families, senior activities, Boys and Girl Scout groups as well as public school, city, and neighborhood meetings. Today, St. John’s is still a place of worship and a gathering spot for the community with over thirty groups meeting throughout the week in their facility. Strongly rooted in Christ’s love and with a deep commitment to social justice, they welcome all who come through their doors.
The mission of St. John’s Presbyterian Church is to partner with God to bring about love, peace, and justice in the world. One of the ways St. John’s achieves this vision is by caring for the environment. The church even formed a group called “The Green Team” which exists to research ways to lessen the carbon footprint of their building, support local efforts to go green, and advocate locally and nationally for policies that affect the disaster of global warming. Installing a solar system on their church building fit in perfectly with St. John’s desire to positively impact the world by reducing their carbon emissions. By partnering with CollectiveSun to fund their solar project, St. John’s Presbyterian Church was able to achieve their goal of protecting the environment. In addition, they were able to lower their energy costs which has enabled them to more effectively serve the Berkeley community and the many groups they host in their environmentally-friendly facility.
