The History of The Congregational Church of Christian Fellowship

Before words like diversity, equity, and inclusion became popular, three pastors of diverse backgrounds believed in God’s word and brought those terms to life. In 1945, Reverend Harold Kingsley (African American), Reverend Royden Suzu-Maga (Japanese American) and Reverend Raymond Booth (White American) met in the living room of a home at 3332 W. Adams Blvd. to start The Congregational Church of Christian Fellowship (CCCF).

 

For over 80 years, CCCF has been on the frontlines of social justice, civil rights, mental health and community uplift. Members marched with Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., worked with SCLC and supported activist Cesar Chavez, who stayed in our Fellowship House when he came to town to organize protests for migrant farmers. The church has also advocated for seniors, children, the mentally ill and the homeless.

 

Today CCCF is the sight for an early childhood development and day care program, providing underprivileged children, safe care, while their parents work. Pastor McKnight was appointed Senior Pastor in 2005. Under his leadership, the spiritual vitality of CCCF continued, the membership grew and new ministries were established. The church also continued its community outreach, entered new business ventures, and connected with a small African village.
