Pastor Mark's Weekly Update - December 14, 2018


Service Opportunity

CHBC has been remodeling the space known as Solomon’s Porch.  This area is being enhanced to provide a better place of worship for our Student Ministry and Hispanic Ministry.  To allow continued growth in both of these ministries we have expanded the area designated for their worship times; adding new lighting, new sound, and new video technology.  Saturday at 1:30 a few men have committed to be present to build a pallet wood wall as the backdrop to the stage.  It would be nice if more help could be present.  If you would be willing to come and help please contact Pastor Aaron, or just arrive at 1:30.  If you have experience with saws and nail guns that is great, but if you are just willing to help carry, lift, or be available that is also needed.


The Light of Christmas

Sunday evening at 5 PM the Worship Ministry of CHBC will be providing a special presentation of Christmas as we continue celebrating the birth of the Messiah.  Use this opportunity to come and meditate on the reason Christians should celebrate Christmas, and invite friends, family, co-workers, and neighbors to come enjoy a wonderful night of music and narration of the miracle that is the birth of Jesus.


The Body Gathered

Church is not a place, a building, or a set of programs.  The church is the body of Christ.  Those who have trusted in Jesus and repented of their sins have been joined to Christ the head, and to one another into one body.  The church separated during the week on mission into the world is necessary and good.  But, the Lord knew that we needed to be together to encourage one another in love and good deeds (Heb. 10:24-25).  Sunday, the day of the resurrection, is the day the early church set aside to gather for singing, Scripture, the ordinances, corporate prayer, and encouragement for one another.  The local church gathering together is not ritual, but a necessity.  It is like the air we breathe.  We may not think about how much we need it, but if we are deprived of oxygen we soon suffer the effect.  I look forward to seeing you Sunday.

Pastor Mark's Weekly Update - December 7, 2018


This weekend is going to attempt to remind us that we are in the winter weather season, and that weather in Oklahoma is unpredictable.  That can create challenges when it comes to Sunday and Wednesday gatherings for CHBC.  How do you know if we have a change to the schedule or a cancellation?  For Sundays the pastors and other key leaders will make a decision by 7 AM on Sunday morning regarding changes or cancellations for Sunday worship or activities.  We will alert the membership via text, Facebook, Twitter, the CHBC website, and the local news stations.  See below on how to be connected to the different communication outlets.  We appreciate your understanding and patience as these difficult decisions are made.  If we have church during inclement weather we will do our best to make entry to the building safe and to provide greeters to assist you.

 Text Alerts – text “4bb4h” to the number 81010

 Stay Connected

One of the desires our church staff has is to make sure that CHBC stays connected throughout the week and between Sundays.  We have many ways to help you be connected to the other members of the body, and to the things that are taking place through CHBC ministries.  The CHBC website which you can access by clicking here, is a good starting place.  Do you follow us on Facebook?  If you have a Facebook account, you should follow us by touching this link, CHBC Facebook, to get to our Facebook page.  Do you have a Twitter account?  If you do, follow us on Twitter @chbchurch_okc, or clicking the link < a href="">here.  You should make sure the church office has your correct email address.  Send that to Donna at   If you have not signed up for text alerts, you can do that by texting “4bb4h” to the number 81010.  We use that number for important updates and weather related announcements.
