FCCV Becomes a Green Chalice Congregation

On Sunday, April 17th, we will have a special Earth Stewardship Sunday service at First Christian Church, Vallejo. Earth Day is an annual remembrance on which events worldwide are held to demonstrate support for environmental protection. First celebrated in 1970, it is now coordinated globally by the Earth Day Network, and is celebrated in 192 countries each year.

During our April 17th worship service, we will unveil the recognition that FCC-V has been given by Disciples Homeland Ministries as a “Green Chalice Congregation.” This recognizes our congregational efforts to: recycle plastic, aluminum, paper and batteries; use fair trade coffee and ceramic coffee mugs; create a community garden; and provide eco-tips in the monthly newsletter and weekly services.

We will be joining the following congregations in California which are recognized as part of “Green Chalice” ==>

All Peoples Christian Center, Los Angeles
Harbor Christian Church, Newport Beach
First Christian Church, Concord
First Christian Church, Torrance
Lakewood Christian Church, Lakewood
Walking Faith Korean-American Christian Church, Sunnyvale
University Christian Church, San Diego

And now First Christian Church, Vallejo!
