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.
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.

“War and Peace in the Trumpian Era”
with Michael Klare
Even if Donald Trump had not been elected, the world would probably be experiencing a greater risk of great-power conflict due to a variety of pressures (China’s rise, Russia’s adventurism, America’s fear of decline), but with his ascension to the presidency the risk is increasing. This talk will assess the forces that make friction and conflict among the great powers more likely, and consider what can be done to minimize these risks. Author of 14 books, Michael Klare is the Five College Professor of Peace & World Security Studies and Defense Correspondent of The Nation magazine.
