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. Our Congregational Director, Linda Jenkins, facilitates the service where we come together to listen, reflect on what we hear, and act upon issues in the context of our purpose. 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 12:45pm for lunch.
Young Adult Sunday
In an effort be more welcoming to young adults, we have designated the first Sunday of each month as Young Adult Sunday. The intention is to have the 11:00am speaker be of interest to individuals under the age of 35, and to have music that speaks to the varying communities in the young-adult age range. Our aim is to reverse the trend of young adults who have visited our congregation yet unfortunately feel excluded because our service does not speak to individuals their age. By having one Sunday per month that is inviting to young adults and intentionally encourages them to come, we hope to support young adults in building community within our congregation as well as building relationship with our longer members.
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 11:00am 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.
