OUTSIDE THE BOX

Since the beginning of the pandemic, most of us have been confined to spaces in our homes. We have participated in and enjoyed online events, classes, screenings, lectures and services. We are thankful for all those programs that have brought us together virtually. Now, however, with changes in social distancing, there is greater opportunity to gather together outdoors while maintaining social distancing and wearing masks. In addition, we are working to identify more interactive programming which will be conducted while social distancing, such as food demonstrations, book chats and more.

OUTSIDE THE BOX is the CCJCC's new programming for people and families to get together outside and/or to conduct interactively. We'll reunite with old friends, make new ones, and connect to nature, storytelling and other things that interest us.

So, join, and let's begin meeting OUTSIDE THE BOX!
