CHBC Family and Friends,

This coming week is Thanksgiving. I pray you will find some time to rest, relax, enjoy your family and/or friends. I also pray you will reflect on why we are thankful, to Whom we should be thankful, and why there is a Thanksgiving Holiday in America. Enjoy these resources while you sit, drive, or cook.

Mark D. DeMoss, Senior Pastor

CHBC Weekly for November 12, 2021

 

Sunday School Leader Meeting – Nov. 14, 4-6 PM

The Sunday School ministry at CHBC is the way we group believers into small groups for Bible study, outreach, and ministry. Once each quarter we meet with the leadership of our Sunday School groups for encouragement, training, and strategy. The next meeting is this Sunday night from 4-6 PM. This means there is no evening service (Ekklesia) so our Sunday School Leaders can have extended time together.

Scripture of the Month

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 Script ure to encourage one another with the Word of God. Second, we want to emphasize the spiritual discipline of Scripture memory. The Scripture we will say and memorize for the month of November is Proverbs 3:5-6, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight.”  You can 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 November 11, 1620, the pilgrims who eventually end up at Plymouth Plantation gather in the signing of the The Mayflower Compact. The Pilgrims pledge themselves, “solemnly mutually in the presence of God and one another,” to “covenant, and combine ourselves together into a civil body politic .” L earn more about what happened on this date in church history by following this link: Today in Church History.

 

Prayer

CHBC pray for one another to resist the love of the world.

1 John 2:15-16

“Do not love the world nor the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh and the lust of the eyes and the boastful pride of life, is not from the Father, but is from the world."
