The leadership of thirty-six churches and national Christian organizations will gather at Pasadena Presbyterian Church, Pasadena, California, Wednesday, February 7, at 7:30 pm to celebrate the formation of
Churches Together in the
USA (CCT).  

Christian Churches Together began in 2001 out of a deeply felt need to broaden and expand fellowship, unity, and witness among the diverse expressions of Christian faith today. Over the past five years, with a focus on praying together and building relationships, CCT has become the broadest, most inclusive fellowship of Christian churches and traditions in the
USA, including Evangelical/Pentecostal, Orthodox, Catholic, historic Protestant and Racial/Ethnic churches among its participants.

As part of the celebration, the five CCT Presidents, Cardinal William Keeler, Archdiocese of Baltimore, Dr William Shaw, National Baptist Convention, USA, Inc., The Very Rev. Leonid Kishkovsky, Orthodox Church in America, Bishop James Leggett, International Pentecostal Holiness Church, and The Rev. Larry Pickens, United Methodist Church, will speak on the significance of the CCT vision for faithful Christian witness. In the symbolic action of lighting candles, all CCT Participants will commit themselves “to grow closer together in Christ in order to strengthen our Christian witness in the world.”   

In cooperation with Fuller Seminary and the Southern California Ecumenical Council, CCT invites church leaders and pastors in the greater
Pasadena area to join in this celebration and to be present at the reception that follows.

More information on CCT is available on the web:   Additional information on the celebration is also available on the SCEC website at
