SACRED SPACE

The Sacred Space Ministry Team maintains and enhances CCC’s buildings and grounds from the faith perspective of being good stewards of our property. The Team is committed to decisions and actions that protect the environment by considering sustainable practices in its decisions.

CCC has two native plant hedgerows which attract native pollinators and wildlife and which we use to educate the church and the wider community about earth-friendly gardening.

We collaborate with the minister and CCC’s Spiritual Life and Renewal Ministry to create seasonal rituals. Earth Stewards have also sponsored educational events for CCC and the wider community, such as a John Muir performance featuring sustainable wineries and local seasonal food, and a Fair Trade chocolate-tasting cabaret.

We connect with the following organizations to augment our wisdom and gain support for our projects: Marin Interfaith Council, UCC Northern California-Nevada Conference, Dominican University, California Interfaith Power and Light, California Rising Sun Youth Energy.

CCC is on its way to becoming a Certified Green Business through the Dominican University Green MBA program.

On Holy Village Workdays you’ll find us catching up with each other while we weed in the hedgerow, paint walls, remove French broom or reorganize the kitchen cupboards. Throughout the year, often on Sundays between services, we gather to maintain our sacred space. All hands are welcome and needed.
