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 are—their unique beliefs, questions, age, gender, struggles, race, doubts, sexuality, abilities, etc...  READ MORE...

Whole Body Sundays

At least once a month, we try to "do" worship in unexpected ways and to engage our whole bodies as well as the whole body of our Church (children, youth, adults).  This may include special types of music (blues, gospel, country, folk), this may include liturgical dance or art, and this may include alternative and more interactive forms of prayer and reflection on the scriptures.  Regardless of what we are trying, you are welcome to  join us!

Support the Homeless

Community Church purchased four coats from The Empowerment Plan in Detroit to donated to the homeless shelter in Painesville.  The durable EMPWR coat is water resistant and transforms into a sleeping bag at night and an over the shoulder bag when not in use.   Member Jenny Wilson, Co-Chair of CCC's Outreach ministry team said: “We loved the simplicity, durability and completeness of the design”. We know there are individuals in our local communities that are homeless and could use a multipurpose coat to keep them warm during the long Ohio winter.   We were excited to be able to purchase four coats.  If you would like to donate a coat through Community Church, please donate to the Church and include a note for donations to be used for this purpose or donate to CCC electronically with Tithe.ly and give to the Outreach fund. 

Live the Resurrection Sunday...

Once again, on April 23rd, the Sunday after Easter, we will be worshiping on Sunday morning and "living the resurrection" through serving those in our community.  We hope you will join us!!!

Community Church Spring Leadership Retreat
(CCC's own Vitality Lab)

Community Church has been a little bit of a journey this past year.  We had a series of listening groups this past spring to discern what has most excited and engaged us in our ministry in the past and where do we see our community of faith moving into the future.  We are currently participating in four day long workshops spread out over the year on Church vitality.  After our last workshop we will gather to share what we have learned, to engage in sharing creative ideas to seek to be even more welcoming, more engaged in social justice and more effective in our mission to help folks on their spiritual journeys through worship and spiritual formation programs. All are welcome.  It will be May 20th 9:30am through dinner. 

CCC SERVICE AUCTION

Please consider donating a item or a service for CCC's Service Auction on May 7th following worship. If you would like the office to use the same information as last year, just let us know.  Otherwise, share your item service information by clicking here! 

 

Wednesday Night Services at 7:30









Join us for evening, reflective services of song and prayer each Wednesday during Lent.  Services will last about a half hour and will include prayerful songs from the Taize tradition.  All are welcome.

Summer Volunteer Retreat

CCC plans to volunteer again this year with the Hiram Farm (an organic farm which serves adults on the Autism Spectrum).  We will soon be picking a date and location for accommodations for a Friday-Saturday summer volunteer retreat open to middle school youth, families with children, and adults.  We have enjoyed our relationship with the Hiram Farm and their farmers who are on the spectrum.  If you are interested in participating please contact Rev. Jason for more information.
