"Second Baptist Church has a commitment to care for their community and one another through acts of service and love. We wanted to go solar because the prospect of saving on energy costs allows us to do more for our community. This month we will give away nearly 250 backpacks full of school supplies to children in Ypsilanti. We will feed over 200 families through our partnership with Food Gatherers. We also would usually being doing our Meet Me At Second Base summer youth baseball program and Vacation Bible School. During the winter months we also work with the Delonis Center to participate in their Rotating Shelter. There are so many ways that we reach out to our community with the Love and Message and Christ. We are grateful that the Solar Moonshot Grant allowed this great endeavor of environmental responsibility to take place on our watch. We pray that it will inspire future generations and our community to embrace solar, wind and other clean forms of energy."
