Green Team moves church toward “Green Chalice” designation


Under the guidance of a new Green Team (Susie Claxton, Bill Palleschi, Beth Rasler, and Judy Zlatnik), Niles Discovery Church is well on the way to becoming a certified Green Chalice Church within the Disciples of Christ.

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. This program is designed to recognize congregations for being good stewards of God’s creation. It also aims to empower congregations with ideas and resources to enable them to walk gently on the earth.

The program has two tiers. The first level is to become a Green Chalice Congregation for which we qualify. The second level is to become a Certified Green Chalice Congregation. We also believe we are well on our way to becoming certified congregation. Watch for updates on our progress and/or look for out fliers in Fellowship Hall. You can learn more about the Green Chalice program at

When the United Church of Christ finalizes their program, the Green Team plans join that, too.
