Since our founding we have been blessed with a number of extraordinary music directors. Approximately twice monthly we also enjoy the work of gifted musicians in our program of special music, now funded by a legacy from former music director John Eggleston. We are pleased to have the weekly services of Jeff Cubeta, above, as our CCC music director. He holds a B.S. in music education from Indiana University of Pennsylvania and is also a songwriter and works as a pianist/musical director in the concert/cabaret world.
The Reading Group meets most Sundays at 10:30 a.m. in the Rectory Chapel, but the group will not be meeting again until fall. If you would like to give some input into what we read then, please contact RevBethPerry@gmail.com. And have a great summer!- please email RevBethPerry@gmail.com.
Communion & Coffee Hour
We celebrate communion each Sunday for all who wish to participate, immediately following the worship service. We use juice rather than wine. We have a coffee hour each Sunday in the rectory, also immediately following the service. The garden is welcoming us for the warmer seasons; we particularly enjoy the coffee hours we can spend both inside and out.
