Be The Church
Do One Thing
Greendale Community Church's environmental group is called Do One Thing or D.O.T. for short. This group is committed to teaching the philosophy that little things add up and if we can only "do one thing" we can make a difference in our world. We must all do something about climate change and turn love into action.
