Roanoke chapter of Virginia Interfaith Power and Light.
RAISE is a Roanoke-based chapter of Virginia Interfaith Power and Light, with the mission to create opportunities for local congregations to live out their callings to care for creation and enact environmental justice. They are not affiliated with a particular religion or denomination and they are not here to change anyone’s beliefs. They meet people and congregations where they are and enable them to act on their environmental values. Its mission is to create opportunities for local congregations to live out their callings to care for creation and enact environmental justice.
To request a speaker, please email Roanokeaise@gmail.com with your name, contact information, the speaker you want to present to you and your group, the topic you want the speaker to present, and a day and time you would want to have the presentation. We will contact the speaker and keep you informed of the presentation you want.
This is God’s good earth; not ours. We do not own the earth; we are but stewards of the earth. God has established an eternal covenant with the dwellers on the earth; ‘Take care of my earth, and you will live; exploit it, and you shall surely die.’
Every month we write a newsletter for all the churches and members that follow RAISE. Each month we try to write about something different that deals with the environment and sometimes we will a do series of newsletters for a certain topic.
Here is an archive of all the newsletters we have written as an organization.
