Duo of Hope "Musical Storytelling"
The fabulous Fernandez-Prieto Duo - consisting of CCC Director of Music and pianist Francisco Fernandez and his wife, renowned cellist Taide Prieto - treated an appreciative crowd to an afternoon of beautiful music on Sunday, May 21.
The concert, entitled "Musical Storytelling," included Schubert's "Arpeggione Sonata," Liszt's "After Reading Dante," and Shostakovich's "Cello Sonata." Following the concert, guests enjoyed a lovely social hour and an opportunity to meet the performers in CCC's Fellowship Hall.
Thank you to these world-class performers for generously sharing their talents with us!

New! “Seeds of Faith” Blog
From Pastor Rich: "I’ve started a blog to go along with my sermons for July. We’ll be studying Paul’s incredible letter to the Philippians. It’s known as “The Epistle of Joy” because it uses the word “joy” more than any other book of the Bible. What’s amazing about this is that he wrote this letter from prison! So Paul’s got something to teach us about faith and joy in challenging times.
Each week I’ll post the passage I’ll be preaching on. I invite your comments. For security purposes you’ll have to “join” the blog to post on it. I hope you’ll check it out, especially if you’re away from CCC for the summer. This can be a nice way to stay connected. Essentially it’s an online Bible Study we can do together as a community of faith. Please check it out at cccspiritblog.blogspot.com."
Women's Bible Study: Begins September 24
The new Women’s Bible Study group will be doing this six-session Bible Study based on John Ortberg’s book If You Want to Walk on Water You’ve Got to Get Out of the Boat. The study will start the study on Sunday evening, September 24. The cost for the participant’s guide will be approximately $8. If you have questions or wish to sign up, contact Margie Dissinger at firstname.lastname@example.org or 978-256-3707.
