Sandy Springs Christian Church is a Green Chalice Church!

untitled (1) (1)We care for the environment, and believe that we have a responsibility to care for God’s creation. We do this by promoting the use of reusable and compostable dishes, keeping a community garden, a robust general and clothing recycling program, and many other initiatives that show our commitment to caring for the Earth.

The Green Chalice Covenant adopted at Sandy Springs Christian Church:

As children of God and followers of Christ Jesus, we covenant to:

Worship God with all creation and pray for the healing of the earth.

Study the climate crisis and engage others in climate solutions.

Repent and forgive for the harm we have inflicted on the earth that sustains life.

Advocate for ecojustice public policies and witness by living sustainable lifestyles.

Rest in God’s good creation and invite others to delight in nature.

 

RECYCLING UPDATE
Great job SSCC and Friends! Our recycling program is going full steam ahead! Many of you have brought in aluminum pop tabs, corks, plastic shopping bags and greeting card fronts.
However, you’ve done so well bringing in toilet paper and paper towel holders, that the Humane Society of Atlanta has asked that you hold off for a little while. Their bins are overflowing thanks to you.
A big thank you to Ericka and Ken Ono for taking the cloth and undonateable clothing to Atlanta ReLoom in Decatur. It was quite a cart full!
Additionally, we would like to thank you for embracing the use of ceramic coffee mugs. It’s been a simple switch and the clean up only takes a few moments. Thank you to those who have helped get the dirty mugs to the kitchenette dishwasher. Every foam cup we can keep out of the landfills the better!
Again, thanks for making such an effort to our Green Chalice designation. If you have any questions or suggestions, please feel free to contact Amy at the church office or at amy@sandyspringscc.org via email.
