The Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) has an initiative called the Green Chalice. The purpose of the Green Chalice Program is to encourage and assist local congregations who wish to live out their faith by caring for creation as God calls us to do. 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. The first step to becoming a Green Chalice congregation is to start a Green Team.
