Welcome to Our Little Church
We invite you to come worship with us and see how we do church. You'll find a pastor who doesn't stay put in the pulpit, but likes to preach from the aisle.
You'll find people who love to sing and do so with gusto, accompanied by guitar or piano, or a pipe organ built and tended by a member of our congregation. You'll find a special time for children that includes a ringing of bells, so we can listen to God in the silence that follows. You'll find flowers and beauty in our historic building.
In our church, you will find ideas to stimulate your thinking and surprising new understandings that can come from reaching deep into the history and mystery of the scriptures.
We are an Open and Affirming Congregaton of the United Church of Christ. For information on the United Church of Christ, click the links below.

Shop and Make a Painless Donation
to CCB at the Same Time
Do you shop online?
If the answer's yes, you have an opportunity to send a portion of your purchase price (4 percent or more) back to CCB as a rebate and a donation to our general fund.
Here's how it works. Go to the Amazon.com button or the eScrip Online Mall button on the left of this page. Click on the Amazon button and it will take you to the Amazon website. Just shop as you always would. Because you entered the Amazon site from the CCB webpage, the rebate will come back to the church. You don't have to do a thing differently.
For the eScrip Online Mall, click on the button and, when you get the to eScrip website, click on SHOP NOW. It will take you to a page where you can link to Bloomingdale's, Macy's, Best Buy, iTunes, and dozens of other retailers. When you make your purchase, use the credit card that's been registered for eScrip. (And if you haven't registered your cards, email Danielle for help in doing that.)
That's all there is to it. It's truly painless and it's not asking you to do a thing you wouldn't ordinarily do when you shop. Those 4 percents add up, and it's nothing additional out of your wallet.
But if you'd like to send a chocolate gift, remember to go to the websites of our Chocolate Fest vendors. CCB doesn't get a rebate but we do benefit our Chocolate Fest vendors whom we really want to succeed.
