By working together in faith, the people and places of worship in our network are able to dig deeper, go further, and achieve change more effectively.
FACS works with 190+ places of worship in the Northern Virginia area. Our network includes members from Protestant, Muslim, Jewish, Catholic, Unitarian Universalist, Hindu, and Peace Traditions. All are welcome; read our inclusivity statement.
Programs: Faith communities are invited to take part in FACS programs; we can help you form a Green Team to organize your community, work with you to upgrade your place of worship into a Solar Sanctuary resilience hub, present a workshop on topics of interest for your members, and much more!
Events: FACS holds four major annual events for members to meet and discuss what they’ve done. Additionally, FACS hosts and co-sponsors many events across Northern Virginia. Visit our Event Calendar to see upcoming events.
Advocacy: FACS advocates to different Northern Virginia entities by conducting county-wide Advocacy Campaigns and organizing community-level Advocacy Teams for grassroots lobbying. Becoming part of our network means that we provide you with resources to support specific causes important to your community.
Youth: Faith Alliance for Climate Solutions is an organization for youth and adults. We provide resources and events that are accessible to youth. Additionally, we can work with your place of worship to develop youth-specific programs.
