Reading Group at Chelsea Community Church

Reading Group

The Reading Group meets most Sundays at 10:30 a.m. in the Rectory Chapel. 

Chelsea Community Church’s reading group will not be meeting until September when we will be reading Bishop Shelby Spong’s book, Biblical Literalism: A Gentile Heresy: A Journey into a New Christianity Through the Doorway of Matthew’s Gospel. We’ll prepare for that by reading the Gospel of Matthew (Chapters 1-4), starting September 18th. For more details, contact RevBethPerry@gmail.com. You can also check out the CCC Facebook page for ways to share your thoughts!

 

Communion & Coffee Hour at Chelsea Community Church

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.
