As a member of the Green Chalice Congregation Network, we believe that God has called us to serve our Earth by conserving our energy, reusing our resources, and reducing our waste.
Our Creation Care Team focuses on and participates in:
Monthly meetings at the church, Recycling Programs, Hoosier InterFaith Power and Light, Celebrates and organizes an Earth Sunday worship program, the Eastside Creation Care Network film series, actively helping the congregation and the members participate in energy assessment programs, community environmental programs such as the Sierra Club. We are always seeking to learn and inform ourselves and others about better ways to care for God’s World.
In October of 2015, Downey Avenue Christian Church installed Solar Panels on the roof of the church to help reduce the amount of electricity that is created by coal. In 2018 we were certified as one of only 99 “Energy Star” congregations in the country!
