Know Christ—Grow in Christ together—Go with Christ into our Community and World
For we write nothing else to you than what you read and understand, and I hope you will understand until the end

Our Church Steeple and Bells

In 2012, we installed a new Church Steeple with Celtic Cross on the roof of the Church building over the Prayer Room (the original entrance into the sanctuary and location of the original Church Bell Tower) along with a digital Carillon Bell system, as a visual and audio witness to our faith in Jesus Christ. The Church Steeple is lighted until 11p.m. every night. The bells ring at Noon and 6 p.m. every day, and before worship services. Many thanks to everyone who donated to the Steeple Fund, bringing this plan to fruition. To God be the glory!


Background of Church Bells and Bell Tower

The first Sanctuary and Bell Tower at Cannon Beach Community Church was built in 1931. Bells first rang from Cannon Beach Community Church from that Bell Tower, on Easter Sunday, 1934. For the next six decades, bells rang daily in Cannon Beach as a witness to our faith in Jesus Christ. The Bell Tower was torn down decades ago due to weathering problems. The old carillon bell system wore out in 2000 and was removed. Over the past decade we’ve sought to replace the old carillon with a new carillon bell system within a newly built steeple. The new carillon bells ring out at Noon and 6 p.m., as well as at the beginning of every worship service, reminding people of God’s gifts of peace and goodwill discovered through prayer and worship, as Longfellow wrote in 1864, I heard the bells . . . wild and sweet their words repeat of peace on earth, goodwill to men.
