CCU thinks green.
We believe that environmental stewardship, or caring for God's gift of creation, is a critical part of our Christian mission. We also know that the struggle for environmental justice is interconnected with our efforts to acheive economic justice, racial justice, and social justice.
CCU is certified as an Earth Care Congregation by the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A) and a Green Chalice Congregation by the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ). We are an active member of Hawai'i Interfaith Power and Light, a coalition of local faith communities raising awareness about climate change and collaborating on creative solutions. We support localized efforts to steward areas which are environmentally threatened such as the Kawainui Marsh and serve with organizations, such as Kahumana Farms and Ho'okua'aina, that work to develop local food systems. We are eager to help develop future leaders for the environmental justice movement through our work with the Eco-Stewards Program and our own Malama Internship.
