Tuesday Night Advent Devotions on Race @ 7pm

Tuesdays at 7pm (Dec. 5th, 12th, 19th, 26th) @ 7pm we will be meeting to have an Advent devotional bible study on the issue of race at the Church.  The devotional title is Journey Towards Wholeness: an Exploration of Race and Theology.  I will be posting the readings on facebook the week prior to each session for those who want to read along from home. All are welcome.  

The bible for all ages... 

Beginning September 10th 2017 we will be reading the major stories of the bible from beginning to end over the course of the year.  One Sunday--one story at a time.  K-3 graders will be given a "Children of God Story Bible", written by Desmond Tutu, a famous former Arch Bishop of South Africa and civil rights leader.   4-7th grade youth will be given "the Action Bible" which is a graphic novel of the bible (think comic book genre), and adults will be encouraged to read along on-line or purchase "The Message" by Eugene Peterson which is written in contemporary and accessible language.  We will read through 52 stories from the bible over the course of the year and in worship and Sunday School, we will find ways to make them accessible in interesting to our own lives. 

WHO WE ARE...














We are a church of the United Church of Christ, committed to hearing God's ancient story anew and afresh in our lives and in the world today.  We seek to be a community of welcome, support & affirmation for individuals seeking spiritual transformation, all the while recognizing and celebrating who they areā€”their unique beliefs, questions, age, gender, struggles, race, doubts, sexuality, abilities, etc...  READ MORE...

Divine creativity...

We have many creative folks at CCC and I believe that creativity is divine.  Above is beautiful meditative Labyrinth painted by one of our Church artists, but we also have dancers, musicians, carpenters, teachers, cooks and bakers, and all other hosts of folks who express their creativity to and with our community of faith and the wider community.  We give thanks for creativity in all its many forms.

O Come, O Come, Emanuel... 

In this season of advent we are particularly aware of all those on the margins of society--women who are harassed, immigrants whose security is threatened, people of color who are often under threat of violence or suspicion because of their skin color...  Jesus comes to us as one who is poor, as one who is oppressed because of his ethnicity and nationality, and he preaches a gospel of liberation.  These are the themes of Advent we will be exploring in worship this Advent and Christmas as we continue to pray for peace and justice in this world.
