Growth and Small Groups
Clackamas UCC has a vital ministry with youth.
See the Youth Groups page for details.
Events and Inter-generational Programs
We have a number of special events and programs throughout the year. See the
Calendar page for details on upcoming events.
Women's Circle meets Wednesdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Circle (originally Ladies' Aid) has been meeting
at our church since 1895. They come
together to have lunch, share their lives, and create crafts for the Holiday
Bazaar. Women of all ages are invited to attend.
Art & Spirit Circle
Once a month the Art & Spirit Circle comes together to work on ways we
can nurture creativity in our lives. We spend time discussing how creativity
is spiritual, and then do hands-on
art projects. We also go on field trips,
most recently we have visited Orcas Island in
Washington, the Estacada wall murals, Vertical Gardens in Oregon City, and
the Sitka Arts Invitational at the World Forestry Center.
and Outreach Projects
Another way to be part of our church's life is to get involved with the various
mission and outreach projects. These are all-church, intergenerational endeavors.
From collecting food for the hungry to advocating for homeless youth, all
projects are worthy of time and energy.
and Special Music
church is fortunate to have a talented and dedicated choir director and organist
Herrera. Jean grew up in our congregation, and generously shares her musical
gifts with the church. She encourages folks to join the choir and share their
musical gifts by providing special music. The choir practices on Wednesday
evenings. Instrumentalists and vocalists of all ages are encouraged to participate
in our worship services.
We have a "Monday Night at The Movies" once a month. We either watch
a film at the church or go out together to the theater.
Book club meets once a month on Monday night.
Council Membership & Committee Involvement
An excellent way to be involved at Clackamas UCC is to take on a leadership
role. Committees seek out individuals with skills and talents needed. These
are diverse and require varied amounts of time. Committees chose a representative
or chairperson to serve on the Church Council. See the Committees
page for more information.
The Council also includes a moderator, vice moderator, treasurer,
secretary, clerk, and financial secretary. All are elected at a congregational
Bible Study and Classes
Christian education classes are offered for preschool/kindergartners through
adults. Our teachers use curriculum prepared by the United Church of Christ,
and Clackamas UCC learning units we call "pods". Special study groups
are offered throughout the year. Childcare is provided for those children
too young to attend a church school class.
