CCSM's 150th Anniversary Celebration Service!

We understand faith as a quest, not a clutched certainty.
Christian means we eagerly explore the Bible for its spiritual wisdom.
We strive to be rooted but not stuck.

Eventbrite - CCSM 150th Anniversary Gala

Sunday, May 4th:

Anniversary Worship Service in the Sanctuary.

Inspiring music, special guests, and celebratory moments to honor those who came before us to create a church that is so vibrant, beautiful, and inclusive, and cherish those who currently make this church a wonderful community .
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.
