CARE FOR PEOPLE. CARE FOR THE EARTH.
As part of our denomination’s Green Chalice Initiative, our congregation strives to live out our faith by caring for creation. The Green Chalice Initiative is designed to recognize congregations for being good stewards of God’s creation. It also aims to empower congregations with ideas and resources to enable them to walk gently on the earth. As a Green Chalice Congregation, we affirm the Green Chalice Covenant:
As children of God and followers of Christ Jesus, we covenant to:
Worship God with all creation and pray for the healing of the earth.
Study the climate crisis and engage others in climate solutions.
Repent and forgive for the harm we have inflicted on the earth that sustains life.
Advocate for ecojustice public policies and witness by living sustainable lifestyles.
Rest in God’s good creation and invite others to delight in nature.
