The Journey of Our Congregation
As times were changing in the 1990’s, CBC felt it was time to hire a pastor, and David Dunkerton, a missionary they had supported, became available. CBC continued to thrive under his 16 years of leadership. In 2008, Dick Wiedenheft began serving as CBC’s second pastor. Under his leadership, we seek to continue to be true to our roots while also innovating to remain engaged with our changing culture.
The History of Our Log Building
Our building was formerly the Kitchawan Tavern, located on the Taconic Parkway a half mile west of its present location. It was built in 1923 and moved to its present location in 1967 when the parkway was widened. The new owner added living quarters to the building and intended to use it as his home but then decided against living in it.
