CCB will return to our Sanctuary March 21 for in-person worship at 10:30 a.m. Sunday mornings, now that health protocols permit it. We will remain masked and socially distant with the windows open. We also will continue to live-stream the service here. If you miss us on Sunday, you can watch the video whenever you like.
The Rev. John Brooke, 1931-2021
With great sadness, CCB announces the passing of its pastor emeritus, the Rev. John Brooke, at his home in Cotati, where he was surrounded by his three daughters, Judy, Suzi and Sally. His beloved wife Gretchen died in 2014. John served CCB from 1980-1992. Because of the pandemic, there will be no services at this time, but the family invites “memorial donations in John’s name to Petaluma Hospice, your local hospice, or any human rights organization.” If you would like to be notified when a memorial service is planned at CCB, please email the church office.
Welcome to the little church on the hill!
Wherever you are on life’s journey, you are welcome here!
Come worship with us and see how we do church. We don’t have all the answers, but we will challenge you to find those that work for you.
You’ll find people who love to sing and do so with gusto, accompanied by guitar and piano, or a pipe organ built and tended by a member of our congregation.
You will find ideas to stimulate your thinking and surprising new understandings that can come from reaching deep into the history and mystery of the Scriptures.
“God is not a Christian; God is not a Jew, or a Muslim, or a Hindu, or a Buddhist. All of those are human systems, which human beings have created to try to help us walk into the mystery of God. I honor my tradition, I walk through my tradition, but I don’t think my tradition defines God. I think it only points me to God.” – John Shelby Spong
