Prayer and Meditation

For use in your personal prayer and meditation practices during this anxious time, please explore these resources:

1) A 7+ minute video of the singing bowls played by OCBC's Doug Koch accompanied by photos of the OCBC windows.

2) This hour+ recording of Taize chants, many of which you will find are familiar chants that we often use in worship at OCBC.

3) This 3-hour recording of Gregorian Chant designed for meditative listening. 

4) Vocal music from OCBC's Minister of Music Thomas Jones. 

5) "God Is Able" sung by the Choir of OCBC

6) Music from the Crepusculum Choir of Berklee College of Music

If you have prayers that you would like to share with the community at OCBC, please e-mail them to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and state whether you'd like these prayers to be shared with the pastor only, the Congregational Care Team, or the entire congregation.

Tithes, Offerings, & Pledge Fulfillment

As we move through this unanticipated period, you can continue giving your offering and pledges. You can do so in a few ways:

  1. By clicking the "Donate" button at the top of the OCBC website. If you choose this method, I'd like you to consider adding 3% to your gift to help cover the cost that OCBC pays for this e-giving service. 
  2. By sending an old fashioned check (which I still use for my own offering) to OCBC at:

    Old Cambridge Baptist Church
    Attn: Finance Team 
    1151 Massachusetts Avenue
    Cambridge, MA 02138 

  3. Or by scheduling an automatic payment to be sent to OCBC by your bank.

Staying Connected

Please continue checking in with texts, calls, or emails to those who are in your care cluster! If you'd like to belong to one of these clusters of OCBCers checking in with one another on a weekly basis, please let Rev. Sanders know: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. 

Also, check out this shared photo album and add your photos to share with others what's keeping you occupied and engaged during this time of physical distancing! 

If you have prayers you would like to share with the congregation, This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to the Congregational Care Team and indicate whether these are for the Team to hold in prayer privately or whether you'd like them to be shared with the whole congregation.
