Pastor Jim Mitulski to be CCB’s new pastor!
The Rev. Jim Mikulski has accepted a call to be pastor of the Congregational Church of Belmont! Former interim pastor of Island United Church in Foster City, Pastor Jim will join CCB early in February. After a candidating sermon on Nov. 13, members of CCB voted unanimously to issue the call! A profile of Pastor Jim is on Page One of the November Messenger. We hope you will join us as we prepare for a new pastor!
Chocolate Fest ends its 38-year run!
They say that all good things must come to an end, and we’re very sad to report that Chocolate Fest has run its course. After 38 years of amazing benefits that showcased the best chocolatiers in the Bay Area, we won’t be reprising this super popular event this October. We hope that we have left you with a sweet taste in your mouth and sweet memories of 38 fantastic Chocolate Fests!
We are back in the Sanctuary
for in-person worship!
CCB gathers in the Sanctuary for in-person worship at 10:30 a.m. Sunday mornings.
We ask that everyone (who is eligible for the vaccine) be vaccinated, but we have adapted our Covid-19 protocols to coincide with San Mateo County guidelines, which require unvaccinated people to wear masks indoors. Although masks are optional for vaccinated folks, we hope everyone will wear a mask to protect the most vulnerable among us. In the Sanctuary and during Coffee Hour, we will remain socially distant with the doors and windows open.
If you would like to join us via Zoom on Sunday mornings at 10:30, here’s the link. If you would like to view the recording of Sunday morning services, you can find the link on our Facebook page in the post announcing that Sunday’s service.
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
