IN GOD’S CREATION
At First Christian, we take seriously God’s call to be good stewards of creation. Some of the ways we live out that call include:
- “Greening” our church practices by recycling and using recycled products where possible, by incorporating the use of cleaning products that are environmentally-friendly, and by using reusable mugs for our coffee socials. Following a recent energy audit, we increased the insulation in our building to reduce our carbon footprint.
- Participating in the Disciples of Christ Coffee Project that links congregations with small farmer cooperatives throughout the world in purchases of fair trade products through Equal Exchange Fair Trade. By purchasing organic coffees, teas, chocolates, and snacks, we have the opportunity to support the use of environmentally responsible agricultural practices throughout the world. Learn more about how these “green partnerships,” are helping farmers to make a difference in God’s creation in their part of the world.
We invite you to join us in making a difference in caring for God’s creation!
