A Note from Rev. Duchess
Dearest CNTC Community,

Many of you already know that in August I tendered my resignation. It had become very clear to me that it was time. Spirit was nudging me to pay attention to what I had been teaching all year-about passion and purpose. Intuitively, I knew that in order to grow, (for me as well as for the Center) I had to go. I was being called to practice what I preach and step out in faith and trust that I would be guided, supported and sourced.

When I first announced my leaving, I had intended to stay through all of November.   Read more...

Music That Changes Things

All Is Well and
Child's Heart. She is a licensed social worker, an advocate for foster children, and a former director of legislation for several California state agencies. She sings all over California and other far away places. 

Carol that changes things - is her prayer, blessing, and her song ministry.

From the CNTC Stewardship Council Treasurer
At our last Town Hall meeting I had the opportunity to share with you the wonderful gift Martha Dunbar left us. We are all appreciative of her generosity and loving spirit. Thank you Martha!

I want to reiterate, we are not using Martha's funds for ongoing, daily expenses. If we used Martha's funds for daily operations this generous gift would be spent without considering Martha's intentions in giving this gift. We are investing most of the funds and using the interest generated for some of our more pressing capital improvements as well as Martha's support for education. 
At a later date the Stewardship Council will examine improvements for our Center and include suggestions from the congregation regarding how to best use these funds.

This is a request that you continue to tithe and contribute to our Center. Our budget and how we operate depend on you. We all experience the uncertainty of a new future with a new minister at the helm. Change always brings challenges and yet, I have to know that what we're experiencing will be the highest and best for everyone. Please continue to support your Center through your participation and financial giving. We will do this together.

Knowing We are a Prosperous Center, Thank You!

Your Treasurer, Joni Samples

Sunday Service
November 1, 2015
You will want to attend Sunday S ervice November 1 for our last opportunity to turn the usual question around and ask
Rev. Duchess, "How may we love you today?" This will be the last inspirational service
Rev. Duchess Dale will speak as our Senior Minister. Rev. Duchess has served our center in many capacities for seven years with a leadership guided by Spirit, love and inspiration. Plan to show up as your attendance is the greatest gift we can give her with a loving farewell and faith in her "divine next to be."

Gratitude is the attitude that allows my perfect expression.

No person, place or thing stands in the way of my good.

I am thankful to live passionately, purposefully and prosperously.

I am grateful that I am now free to live my dream and fulfill my Vision.

I let go, let God and enjoy the ride.

And so it is.
