Green Chalice is the Creation Care Program of Disciples Home Mission, a General Ministry of The Christian Church (Disciples of Christ). Its purpose 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. Green Chalice is proud to partner with Blessed Tomorrow, a coalition of diverse religious partners working to advance climate solutions in faithful service to God.
The Green Chalice mission “is to connect Christian faith, spiritual practice and creation consciousness in order to demonstrate the fullness of God’s shalom.”
Midway Christian Church became a Green Chalice congregation in 2010 by entering into the Alverna Covenant and in 2015, we reached the Certified Green Chalice congregation level by meeting all necessary requirements including the adoption of the Green Chalice Covenant. The Midway Green Chalice team meets each month in the Fellowship Hall. Our focus is to find ways to be more responsible in the use of the earth’s resources and to educate others about this responsibility as Christians.
Anyone interested in caring for God’s creation in our community (and beyond) is welcome!
“The earth is the Lord’s and everything in it. The world and all its people belong to God. For God laid the earth’s foundation on the seas and built it on the ocean depths.” (Psalm 24:1-2)
