We are a community-focused church!
Located in the heart of Douglaston Village, CCD's facilities are used by many local groups such as Alcoholics Anonymous, the Douglaston Garden Club, the Douglaston Civic Association, the Douglas Manor Association, and the Tuesday Morning Music Club. CCD hosts an After School Academy providing homework supervision and recreation to neighborhood children; Hearts in the Community, which offers short-term financial and other assistance to those in need in our community as well as providing holiday dinners to local families each year; and the Blanton-Peale Counseling Center, which offers professional counseling services to the community, both call CCD home.
UPK (nursery school)
We are a New York City UPK (universal pre-kindergarten) site, offering an approved and certified nursery school program to all children of the region.
Douglaston Garden Club
The Douglaston Garden Club sends its members out many times a year to prune, weed, trim and tidy our common Douglaston areas. It holds its monthly meetings at CCD, a community center.
Tuesday Morning Music Club
Neighborhood music lovers come each month to the Jean Carol Kenney Parlor to hear professional musicians perform -- some on our own magnificent Steinway piano.
Parlor art gallery
The attractive and comfortable Jean Carol Kenney parlor is the site of occasional art exhibits, which have included displays of painting, sculpture, and photography by local artists, and jewelry by our own Erika.
Douglaston Civic Association
Representing all Douglaston residents, with a board of elected leaders, the Douglaston Civic Association regularly holds its meetings at CCD.
Douglas Manor Association
The small incorporated section of Douglaston known as Douglas Manor, also led by an elected board, often holds its annual meeting at CCD.
The local chapter of AA holds regular meetings at CCD on Wednesday and Saturday at 7:45 PM, and an open meeting on Saturday at 9 PM.
Among other ongoing and occasional activities, CCD is proud to host Erika's Jewelry show and Adult Yoga in the JCP parlor.
