Montgomery County recently awarded CCC a $7,000 grant to make several security improvements to our building and grounds.
The grant terms require us to provide matching funds, and we are calling for contributions to help us meet that match.
You may make a donation toward the Security Grant match by clicking the Donate button above, or by placing a check in the Sunday offering, with the notation “Security Grant” written in the memo field.
Cultures of Peace
Any definition of a culture of peace must address the problem of achieving justice for communities and individuals who do not have the means to compete or cope without structured assistance and compassionate help. -- Mahnaz Afkhami
Freedom, Justice, Democracy
Words like 'freedom', 'justice' and 'democracy' are not common concepts; on the contrary, they are rare. People are not born knowing what these are. It takes enormous, and above all, individual effort to arrive at the respect for other people that these words imply. -- James Baldwin
Without justice and love, peace will always be the great illusion. -- Archbishop Hélder Pessoa Câmara
If you're aware of injustice, you can either ignore it, say there is nothing you can do about it, complain about it and not do anything, or put your energies into doing something about it. -- Ben Cohen
I pledge to protect the earth And respect the Web of Life upon it And to honor the dignity of every member of our global family One planet, one people, one world in harmony With peace, justice and freedom for all. -- John Ince
