Sundays & More

 Sunday Services
From September through June, we have Sunday services for individuals seeking to grow their involvement in a welcoming and family-friendly community fully rooted in justice work. Our 11:00 am Speakers Forum is a time to hear from inspiring and thought-provoking speakers around social justice topics. Music adds a wonderful dimension to the service, and the musicians vary from week to week. We leave time for dialogue with our speaker before gathering at 12:45 pm for lunch.

Membership Sunday
On the first Sunday of each month, we celebrate individuals who wish to become members of Community Church of Boston. We take time during the 11:00 am service when individuals can, as they desire, come forward and sign our Membership Book – a brief yet purposeful ritual symbolizing a commitment not only from the individual to the congregation, but also from the congregation to the individual.

“David and Goliath – Steven Donziger’s Three decades fight v. Chevron/Big Oil”
with Steven Donziger

What if lawyers could be privately prosecuted, for simply defending the rights of their clients? If Steven Donziger loses his case, we’ll find out.

Join us as we have a conversation with Steven Donziger, a renowned lawyer, writer, and public speaker with a focus on addressing human rights abuses and corporate malfeasance. He is part of the team working with indigenous and farmer communities in an area of the Ecuadorian Amazon rainforest’s suffering from high cancer rates and other health ailments related to the massive oil pollution caused by Texaco, now owned by Chevron.

In 2011, the affected communities won a historic $9.5 billion judgment against Chevron for the environmental cleanup of what experts consider to be one of the worst oil-related catastrophes in the world.

The trial has begun for Steven who has been under house arrest for more than 640 days, he faces six counts of criminal contempt of court and up to six months in prison if convicted because he stood up to Big Oil and won.
