Networking for an Environmental Church

2014 Directors' Award Recipient

Building on prior grant work, the Rev. Steve Blackmer acquired land and developed a network which became Church of the Woods “to evangelize the many locals who love the outdoors and seek spirituality in nature, not church…” – The Living Church, 11/16/14. Blackmer co-hosted Pilgrimage for Earth, a triennial liturgy festival, with St. James, Woodstock, VT. Regular services at Church of the Woods have begun. His E-21 grant work was awarded the Morgan Directors’ Award in 2014.
