CCOP on Facebook

Community Church of Providence has a new site on Facebook. Our old site is no longer active (as of a few months ago), and so we want to make sure you are connected to the current page, https://www.facebook.com/CommunityofProv/.

By following us on Facebook, you'll have access to information about upcoming services, community events, volunteer opportunities, and much more.


As we gather in fellowship this February, we are filled with gratitude and anticipation to honor Black History Month. Throughout this significant month, we will unite to recognize the invaluable contributions and enduring legacy of Black individuals in shaping our world and our faith.

During our upcoming services and events, we invite you to join us in reflecting on the rich tapestry of Black history, from the profound spiritual leadership to the unwavering commitment to justice and equality. It is our shared responsibility to acknowledge and celebrate the diversity of experiences and perspectives that have enriched our church community and our collective journey of faith.

Together, let us embrace this opportunity to deepen our understanding, nurture empathy, and reaffirm our commitment to fostering an inclusive and supportive environment for all members of our congregation. Our shared exploration of Black history can serve as a catalyst for unity, compassion, and growth within our church family.

Weekly Prayer


W.E.B DuBois: "Give Us Grace"

Give us grace, O God, to dare to do the deed which we well know

cries to be done. Let us not hesitate because of ease, or the

words of men’s mouths, or our own lives. Mighty causes are

calling us—the freeing of women, the training of children, the

putting down of hate and murder and poverty—all these and

more. But they call with voices that mean work and sacrifices

and death. Mercifully grant us, O God, the spirit of Esther, that

we say: I will go unto the King and if I perish, I perish.

Educator and civil rights activist W. E. B. Du Bois became the first African American to receive a doctorate from Harvard.

Thoughtful Insights From Reverend Charles Hartman

When Roger Williams was forced out of the Massachusetts Bay Colony in 1636, he made his way to the banks of the Seekonk River and began his settlement in what is now East Providence. When the Plymouth Colony leaders objected he moved to what is now Providence and settled there. He did this with the cooperation and blessings of Canonicus, the sachem of the Narragansett people. The Baptist are indebted to the indigenous people in their struggle to survive and flourish. Baptists and the Narragansett people now have a long history that include important figures like Princess Redwing who was a member of the Berean Baptist congregation in Harrisville. Now we encourage support for the efforts to relocate the Tomaquag Museum from Exeter to a site on the URI campus.

On The Spiritual Journey: Rocks and Roots

“finding a path through the wilderness”: a sermon and four sessions

Join us as we explore of what it means to grow spiritually. We seek spiritual growth in order to sustain our faith and practice in our daily walk. Using the metaphor of “wilderness,” we will read and reflect on passages from scripture, poets, theologians, and mystics. As we discover both personal and corporate pathways through “wilderness” both real and metaphorically, we will share questions and seek wisdom about those things challenging us as persons,

communities and as the church.

Our format begins with the sermon on February 25: Rocks and Roots: “Let’s Talk about the Walk”. We will follow that sermon with four zoom sessions. Each one will continue to explore themes introduced through the sermon.

Registration forms are available In Rhodes Hall.

Please choose the time best for you. We will announce a final schedule when everyone has had a chance to

register. Please sign up soon.

We encourage folks to commit to all four sessions as each one builds on the previous one.

Questions may be directed to Charlie at [email protected].
