Jazz Vespers

Jazz Vespers

"Vespers" comes from the Greek word "hespera," meaning evening, and vespers is a service of evening prayer and reflection at the close of day. About every other month, our church offers a service of Jazz Vespers: evening prayer combined with the spontaneity and discovery of jazz. This service includes readings from scripture and poetry, and reflections from creative thinkers both from our church and the wider community. We also include times for prayer and contemplation.  

Our hope and desire in offering Jazz Vespers is to provide an opportunity for contemplation and community at a different time, and in a different style, from our traditional Sunday worship. The musicians for this service are part of the California Jazz Arts Society.

We are pleased to welcome the Ron Kobayashi Trio featuring vocalist Debbi Ebert as the musicians for our April vespers service. Plan to attend this beautiful service in CPC's sanctuary on Sunday April 28 at 6:00 PM and stay afterwards for refreshments.

Thursday Morning Prayer and Meditation

Thursday Morning Prayer and Meditation

  • The Chapel at Claremont Presbyterian Church (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Jesus went to the desert to pray, and for centuries believers and non-believers alike have sought calm and quiet to listen to the Holy Spirit.

We invite you to join together in centering prayer and meditation at the beginning of the day.

Rev. Duane Bidwell and Elder Charles Kerchner will lead a short service that invites us to the ancient spiritual discipline of making ourselves available to the Holy Spirit.

Keeping silence together allows us to support on another as we push aside the annoyances of the day and practice creating a more intimate relationship to God.

All are welcome. You don't have to be a CPC member or to regularly practice any religion to participate.
