The Mission of CHBC – Exalting Christ
The church is not a building people meet together in, but a people who gather to worship Jesus Christ as Lord. The church no longer offers an animal sacrifice as worship of God. Instead, we offer a sacrifice of praise (Heb. 13:15). That is not just words in songs, but our whole lives offered as our spiritual worship (Rom. 12:1-2). We have put in front of us as one of the purposes we pursue to be Christ exalters. CHBC wants to help one another make much of Jesus.
We continue to wait for updates related to the final production of the carpet that will be installed in our worship center. We will keep you updated as we find out the specific timeline. The new choir risers should arrive in about a week. Thank you for patiently praying with the Building Team as this project is underway.
Memorial Day Picnic – Sunday, May 29 at 5 PM
CHBC has an annual tradition of enjoying a time of church fellowship on the Sunday night before Memorial Day. This is a time for the church to have fun together. Biblical community deepens as you spend time with others from your church family. We encourage you to come and intentionally sit with people you do not already know. Learn one another’s names and hear one another’s stories. Hamburgers and hotdogs will be cooked. Please bring sides, toppings, and desserts to share. There is space to play soccer, softball, volleyball, throw a football, play frisbee, ride a scooter, ride a bike, or just about any other yard game you want to play. Bring your families favorite backyard games. There will be a cornhole tournament for those who want to pair up and play.

Scripture of the Month
Isaiah 40:31, “Yet those who wait for the Lord will gain new strength; they will mount up with wings like eagles, they will run and not get tired, they will walk and not become weary.” Each week CHBC says aloud a passage of Scripture during our morning worship gathering. This is done for two reasons. First, we are commanded in Scripture to encourage one another with the Word of God. Second, we want to emphasize the spiritual discipline of Scripture memory. Receive a text to your phone with this verse set to music by texting the word “CHBCVERSE” to the number (302) 207-SONG (7664).
A Moment in Church History
On May 26, 1521, at the Diet of Worms a special session is held which finds Martin Luther guilty of heresy and calls for his arrest and death. Learn more about what happened on this date in church history by following this link: Today in Church History.
Pray for one another the words of this passage of Scripture. Pray that by divine wisdom each one of us would act in ways that are pure, peaceable, reasonable, and full of mercy.
“For God did not send the Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world might be saved through Him.”
