Cherokee Park United Church plans to celebrate newly installed solar panels on its building this Sunday.
Church leaders view the panels -- which meet over 100 percent of the church’s electricity needs -- as an expression of their faith and hope other churches are inspired to install similar environmentally friendly systems.
Elected officials and religious leaders are expected to attend the dedication, slated for 3:30 p.m. at the church at 371 West Baker Street.
