Aaron Project Brunch
Are you an Aaron? An Aaron is a prayer partner of our local area educators. If you signed up last summer to pray for an educator, then we want you to be able to meet the person for whom you have been praying. There will be a brunch for you to be able to meet your educator on May 1, from 10:00 AM to 11:30 AM. You can learn more and register here: Aaron Project Brunch.
Now Streaming on YouTube
CHBC has added an additional way for our services to be live streamed. You can still live stream through your Facebook account by following us at https://www.facebook.com/chbcokc. But now you can also stream the services live straight from a smart phone, a smart TV, your computer, laptop, or tablet, simply by going to our YouTube channel at www.youtube.com/chbcokc. You will find previous sermons there, as well as Men’s Fraternity sessions, and other original CHBC content. You can subscribe to our channel so that you can get quick access and be alerted when there is new content to view.
Ordination for Ministry
On May 2, at 5 PM, CHBC is planning for an ordination service for three members of our church. These men have been recognized by the congregation as those who are called and gifted to serve Christ and the church in the capacity of pastoral ministry. Tyler Neighbors, Alex Meyer, and Bryce Schmidt will be presented before an ordaining council on May 2, at 3 PM, and a service for laying on of hands will occur at 5 PM.
CHBC Worship for 4/18/21
The church is not a building people meet together in, but a people who gather to worship Jesus Christ as Lord.
The church’s purpose is pretty simple: gather for worship; evangelize unbelievers; and disciple believers. Exalt Christ, extend the gospel, and equip believers. And that works in a cycle. Believer must be taught about who God is, how to live for Him, how to worship Him, and how to take the gospel to others. I pray that if God wakes us up tomorrow, we will give ourselves fully to these purposes.
Gathering in worship at this moment is still following COVID-19 suggested protocols for large groups. We encourage you to physically distance in crowded spaces. We are separating our seating by rows, and suggesting you leave space between you and the person or family next to you. Face coverings are optional in our worship center. We offer a publicly gathered live-stream in our Activity Center, and we ask that you wear a mask of face covering in that space during Sunday School or the time of worship.
There are Sunday School Classes currently meeting in person at CHBC. We are also providing material for you to use at home if you are unable to attend an in-person small group. We have adjusted our rooms so that physical distancing can be maintained within each class setting. Please let us know if you would like a print version of the Lifeway curriculum from your Sunday School class for home use. Below is a printable version of a series from Capitol Hill Baptist Church in Washington, DC.

A Moment in Church History
On April 15, 1958, Dayuma, an Auca Indian from the tribe who martyred Jim Elliot and his missionary companions is baptized at Wheaton College, where Jim and Elizabeth had graduated before leaving for Ecuador. Learn more about church history at this link: Today in Church History.
Please pray for our nation, our President, our Vice President, and all of our elected national, state, and local leaders. We should thank God for establishing government over us and ask Him to protect our freedoms through wise and judicious leadership.
“For because of this you also pay taxes, for rulers are servants of God, devoting themselves to this very thing. Render to all what is due them: tax to whom tax is due; custom to whom custom; fear to whom fear; honor to whom honor.”
