Memorial Tree

Precious memories of loved ones or friends who have passed are with us all year but especially at Christmastime. The tree in the Chapel. We invite you to add an ornament, picture or something special in honor of your loved ones.

Giving Tree The Giving Tree is a CCRC Tradition! There are many ornaments to choose from, each ornament represents an organization in need. Participate by visiting the Giving Tree in our sanctuary and dropping off donations by December 20th, or by donating directly. Choose an ornament and place your gift under the tree or in the “package” next to the tree. More details about the organizations we are supporting can be found here .

Seasonal Devotions

Daily Devotions from the RCA for the Advent season. This year the theme for the devotions is about the JESSE TREE. Links to devotions for adults and families are here.

Hospitality Peace Project

“Peace be with you.” Throughout Advent, let’s show our hope for peace, at home and around the world, by making and sharing paper doves.  Resources and more information about the peace project can be found here.

Stories of the Season

Beginning December 1st, stories told by members of the congregation will be shared almost every day. Special stories at Christmas are a wonderful way for us to share with one another while embracing the meaning of the season. Find a list of video recorded stories here.
