Since our founding we have been blessed with a number of extraordinary music directors, making our regular and special services memorable. 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. Special music is scheduled approximately twice a month. 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.
