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.

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.
CHBC Worship for 4/11/21
The church is not a building people meet together in, but a people who gather to worship Jesus Christ as Lord.
When CHBC gathers to worship Jesus as Lord, we believe that means we are not allowed to worship Him in any way we want, but to worship according to His prescription for us. The Bible does not contain a specific order of worship, but it does give us guiding principles in order to know how to properly worship God. The early church was devoted to the apostles’ teaching. The apostles taught from the law and prophets, and how they were fulfilled in Christ, and they wrote the New Testament. So, our church worship service is filled with Scripture. It infuses our singing, it is read aloud, it is used as the basis for prayer, it is quoted aloud by the congregation, and it is the basis for the sermon.
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 8, 1974, George Morling died. Morling was the principal of New South Wales Baptist College, and instrumental in a renewal of biblical Christianity in the Australian Baptists during his lifetime. Read more about George Morling at this link: Today in Church History.
Reconciliation, according to John Calvin, is the establishment of peace between humanity and God that results from the expiation of original sin and the propitiation of God’s wrath. It is the end of estrangement between God and man because of original sin. Thank God that He has reconciled you to Himself through Christ, and that He has given you the ministry of reconciliation.
“For if while we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life.”
Mark D. DeMoss, Senior Pastor
For the Glory of God
