Green Chalice Program
Updated: Dec 2, 2022
The mission of Disciples of Christ's Green Chalice Ministry is "to connect Christian faith, spiritual practice, and creation consciousness in order to demonstrate the fullness of God’s shalom."
Disciples of Christ created a Green Chalice Program "to encourage and assist local congregations/DOC Offices and Assemblies who wish to live out their faith by caring for creation." With the urgency of climate change impacting our neighbors and the world right now Disciples of Christ have "prioritized Carbon Neutrality while still inviting congregations to care for creation more generally."
To become A Green Chalice Ministry a congregation team must start a Creation Care Team; then sign the Green Chalice Covenant and make at least 3 changes that demonstrate your congregation's commitment to caring for God's creation.
Their Disciples Home Missions website has a Congregation Toolkit and links to many other resources.
