Pick-A-Party 2014

Pick-A-Party is CCSM's annual fundraiser, which in its 16th year, combines fundraising with having fun and fellowship!

If you have hosted a Pick-A-Party before, we very much appreciate your past generosity and we hope you will want to host a party again. If you have not previously hosted a Pick-A-Party, doing so can be as much fun as being a guest at a party!

CCSM 150th Anniversary Weekend

We had a wonderful celebration of our 150th Anniversary!

If you are looking...

...for a church that gathers around the teachings of Jesus Christ and does so in an open-minded and progressive way — this may be the place for you.

...for ways to further the cause of justice and peace through service to the local community and wider world — this may be the place for you.

...into your heart and finding that God's love knows no bounds, and church should be a place where all are welcome — young, old, rich, poor, different colors and sexual orientations — this may be the place for you.

There are a lot of churches out there, and people are looking for a place they can feel at home. It can be difficult to tell, at first, if a church is a good fit with your philosophy of life or core values. In order to help newcomers get an immediate sense of us, as well as to help longtime members remain aware of our essentials, we offer these guiding principles. We seek to hold ourselves accountable to live these principles in community together.
