ANNOUNCEMENTS

The congregation of the Community Church of Boston strives to be a wise steward of both financial and natural resources. We are working to become more energy efficient, which will keep the congregation more comfortable, lower our energy bills and improve the energy efficiency of our building.

On March 6, 2013 the Massachusetts Department of Corrections posted an announcement that all prisoner’s friends and family would be subjected to search by drug-detecting dogs upon visits.  The CCB Prison Membership Committee prepared an open statement to Gov. Deval Patrick condemning this practice, which the CCB Board & Congregation unanimously endorsed.

The Community Church of Boston stands with Councilor Chuck Turner! Read our open letter HERE.
