First Christian Church in Harrisonville Becomes Third Mid-America Green Chalice Congregation

Written by hvillefcc on Mar 10, 2015 in - No Comments

Greenchalice We are very proud to have reached the distinction of being named a Green Chalice Congregation.

The purpose of the Green Chalice Program is to encourage and assist local congregations/DOC Offices and Assemblies who wish to live out their faith by caring for creation. This program is designed to recognize congregations for being good stewards of God’s creation. It also aims to empower congregations/assemblies with ideas and resources to enable them to walk gently on the earth.

Through the work of our Green Team, headed by Cheryl Tinsley, our congregation has taken steps to lower our effect on God’s creation though recycling, purchasing Equal Exchange coffee, using recycled or earth friendly products wherepossible and encouraging our parishioners to do the same.
