The Community for Interfaith Celebration (CIC) is an interfaith congregation based in Olympia, Washington. Our group is affiliated, regionally and nationally, with the United Church of Christ. We are an "open and affirming" congregation, which means that we welcome and accept all people, regardless of religion, race, gender, age, nationality, sexual orientation, intellectual or developmental level, or physical ability. We are coming from and turning to a variety of religious traditions and philosophies, including Agnostic, Buddhist, Christian, Earth-centered, Jewish, Pagan, Quaker, Sufi, Taoist, and Unitarian. We value community, tolerance, and openness.
Due to emerging recommendations related to COVID-19, Community for Interfaith Celebration is moving to online celebrations and meetings through at least May 4th. Please see information below on how to access upcoming online celebrations via Zoom.

We come together to celebrate the seasons of life,

For the sake of the whole world.
