SYF Uncommon Stock…

As our Senior Youth Fellowship Mission Team prepares to travel to Fort Thompson, South Dakota to work with Dacotah Tipis Habitat for Humanity and a variety of other organizations in July we want to offer all of our church family members and friends the opportunity to become stockholders in our trip.  If you have missed the opportunity to purchase stock, shares of “Uncommon Stock” are $10 each and will now be available for sale by e-mail to jennifer@uccb.org (send a message with the number of shares you would like and an inquiry for payment information) from now through July 1st.  As a stockholder you will receive a “shout out” from the road, an invitation to our special Stockholders’ Breakfast in September, and the knowledge that you have helped to support our youth in doing God’s work.  
Thank you in advance for your support!

Worship at CCB

We invite you to attend every week,
and to invite your friends to join you.
YOUR QUESTIONS ARE WELCOME HERE!

  • Would you enjoy the guidance of fellow seekers to help you support your children's growth into strong and compassionate moral thinkers?
  • Are you looking for a place where you can bring your deepest joys and sorrows and find real companionship in celebration and suffering?
  • Do you long for a place where you and your family can learn to love one another and care for the world in a compassionate faith community?

We hope our little white-steepled meetinghouse will become a weekly refuge for your soul -- where you can join us to share gratitude and wonder for your life, and learn to use ancient spiritual resources to wrestle with your questions about the greatest mysteries of the universe.

No matter who you are or where you are on life's journey,
YOU (and your questions) ARE WELCOME HERE.


Sacraments

We offer Communion every week at 8:30am
& on 1st Sundays each month at 10:30am.

Programs for Children & Youth

Nursery is open for both Sunday services. During the summer, we have one-room Church School at 8:30 and 10:30am services for grades K-6.  At 10:30 during the school year, there are age-graded classes for Pre-K through grade 8. Young people usually leave for their classes during a hymn early in the service, but all children are welcome to stay in adult worship if they prefer.

Got Bibles? Dig Deep and Learn More...

Thursday Morning Bible Study
10 to 11am in the Pastor's Study

Join Pastor Bryn or Pastor Jen to study the lectionary scripture for an upcoming Sunday sermon.  This is a chance to learn more about the text in its historical and literary context, as well as to prayerfully explore what wisdom it might hold for you that will help you relate its message to your personal life and faith journey.  No previous Bible knowledge is presumed or expected. All are welcome!

If you would like more information, speak to one of our pastors at 203-775-1259 or e-mail the church at office@uccb.org.
