Music Academy Update
Our CLC Music Academy offers lessons for all ages and all instruments. Mike Curran currently has openings for private half hour or one hour lessons, in person or on Zoom. What a great opportunity to incorporate music into your child’s curriculum, especially if you’re homeschooling! Maybe you’re an adult who’s always wanted to learn? That’s okay too!

This just in!
While we will continue our weekly CVC online services, we have been given the go ahead from the Commonwealth of MA to hold services here at CLC!
Starting June 7, we will meet at our usual times right here at church. We will have restrictions, of course, and will have safety precautions in place, but we are excited to celebrate live and in person once again!
See you Sunday, June 7!
