Faith without works is... well. You know the rest.
Feeding our brothers and sisters
The Campbell UCC Food Pantry shows God’s love by supplying emergency and supplemental food to those who need it. Some clothing items and toiletries are also available. Donations come from our parishioners and are tax deductible. Open to the public T/ Th 11:00 AM to 1:00 PM and Sat 10:00 AM to Noon.
A learning community
Bible study is on the second and fourth Wednesday of every month, at 6PM in the Fireside Room. Discussions tend to be about progressive faith, and how to live it out in a polarized world. Anyone is welcome, no prior attendance required. Join us for the intellectual side of faith!
The good kind of drama at church!
Silicon Valley may be the tech center of the world, but we have a lot of talented performers who are itching to share a stage around here too! Rehearsing, doing tech, and generally spending time together around a community production is one of the best ways we know of to build fellowship.
"Twelve Angry Women"-- "Twelve Angry Men," but with an all-female (and men who can play women!) cast-- will be performed on 3/24 and 3/25, we will have roundtable discussions about the nature of consensus and the justice system. Contact us for more details.
Also, check out the fabulous front-page review of "A Christmas Carol" in The Campbell Express! Yes, we are stars. No, we won't forget where we came from.
Coffee and books... ah, bliss
Part of our mission at CUCC is social-justice-related, and the way we begin to make the world better is by educating ourselves. We are currently meeting from 12-2PM at the Snake and Butterfly every Saturday to read from Michelle Alexander's The New Jim Crow. We spend the first hour reading, and the next hour or so processing/ discussing. No homework--or previous attendance--required!
Social justice discussions over $25 Raisinets
The stories that are told to our culture shape where we go next, so movies are a great way to start discussions about what it means to be a person of faith in the modern world. Every few weeks we get together to see a film, and afterwards, some of us hang out and discuss it. Contact Lauren, or see our Facebook page, for details about the next screening.
