Mission Action is a major aspect of who we are as Disciples of Christ. It encompasses our desire for justice, our focus on alleviating poverty and hunger, and our attention to being good stewards of the Earth.
This special ecumenical gift faire raises money for several non-profit organizations. It takes place each year on the 1st Saturday of December. Learn More here.
First Christian Church of Vallejo is a sponsoring organization for this annual walk to raise money for CROP.
The Vallejo Relay for Life helps raise money for the American Cancer Society. While we don't have a team this year, we are still encouraging our congregation support this effort.
We grow fresh produce to donate to a number of local food banks including the Amador St. Hope Center and The Sparrow Project.
We are a founding member of Common Ground, a local community organizing effort.
FCC Vallejo is a certified Green Chalice Church. From the Green Chalice website: "Out of our call to “do justice” (Micah 6:8), we strive to demonstrate the fullness of God’s shalom through living out our faith by caring for God’s creation.."
FCCV's latest effort to fulfill our commitment to the Green Chalice ministry is to switch our electricity to 100% renewable sources. This is a new opportunity through MCE Clean Energy and their Deep Green program which we are very excited to join. This switch goes into effect in April, 2021. We are now a Deep Green Champion which means we are doing our part for the planet.
MCE, a not-for-profit public agency, provides customers like FCCV with a choice of cleaner, locally controlled electricity options. Their regular service provides 60% of customers' electricity from renewable sources (twice as high as typical energy providers). But, their Deep Green program provides 100% of the electricity from green sources like solar and wind. For a small monthly fee, our Administrative Council felt that it is well worth upgrading to the Deep Green program considering the immense importance of switching to clean, renewable sources.
We believe strongly in our commitment to caring for God's creation and this is a great effort towards that end.
