SERVICES

CCC OFFERS THREE FORMAL WORSHIP SERVICES:

Sundays 7:30 AM: A quiet, contemplative service, including silent meditation, simple chants, and an inspiring message, as we gather in a circle in the Seminar Room.

Sundays 10:00 AM: An uplifting family worship in the Sanctuary, with an inspiring message, global and familiar music.

CCC’s Church School is held each Sunday during the 10AM worship service for children ages three to nine. After the children’s time, which is offered at the beginning of the worship service, the children have the opportunity to stay with their parents or join us for a specially designed children’s program.  We have created a progressive Christian curriculum that fosters inclusivity, recognition of the presence of God’s spirit around us and within us, forgiveness of our own and others’ failings, and a sense of responsibility to care for each other and for our planet. Believing every child is beloved, we acknowledge and appreciate the unique gifts and unknowable potential of our children as we help them to develop their own spiritual identities.

Our Children’s Spiritual Formation Coordinator is Ingrid Serban. Ingrid was born in Transylvania and formally studied piano from an early age. She is an award-winning vocalist and recording artist and she is married to singer-songwriter Forest Sun. Ingrid loves working with children. Her previous experience includes musical direction of “Seussical the Musical,” “Oh Brother Where art Thou,” “Guys and Dolls” and several Broadway in Review productions. About coming to work with the children at CCC, Ingrid says:

I am very pleased to join CCC.  I’ve seldom felt more welcomed by a community and I’m very blessed to be a part of it. Being the Children’s Spiritual Formation Coordinator is a very special task and I’m happy to be able to weave in music as part of our Sunday lessons. Spirit so often speaks to us though music and I believe that music has the unique way of connecting us all to one another and to the divine. I strive to create a loving and joyful environment where the children can can learn more about faith, express their uniqueness and sing songs that relate to the day’s lesson.

Taize : on the third Sunday of the month, at 7:00 in the evening: All are welcome to gather in our Seminar Room for a service of Taize chanting and meditation. The service is led by a cantor and flautist, who guide the simple and spirit deepening chants. Brief readings of scripture or poetry, a time of silent reflection, and a time to offer prayers for those in need complete the service.  You are welcome to come and sing or just to listen.
