First Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in Beaumont, Texas, has initiated a Green outreach program that includes several projects designed to help the community. The program, called "Caring for God’s Creation," created a garden project to assist the homeless, developed re-usable shopping bags containing the church’s logo, a recycling program, and remodeled a rest area in the church that is powered by solar panels.
"The goal of Caring for God’s Creation is to joyfully commit to preserving and cultivating God’s good Earth as our common residence," said Brenda Griffin Warren, senior pastor at First Christian in Beaumont. "Caring for God’s Creation is part of the heritage of mainstream Christian worship." To learn more about this initiative, see:
