CHBC Worship for 3/28/21
The church is not a building people meet together in, but a people who gather to worship Jesus Christ as Lord.
The church is a people who have been saved by faith in Christ and are covenanted together to carry out the proclamation of the word of God, the participation in the church ordinances, and the practice of church discipline. The Church is the gathered people of God who hear the gospel, sing the gospel, and do the gospel. How do we do the gospel? We are baptized and we take the Lord’s Supper. Baptism is the gospel on display of God’s initiative act of salvation. The Lord’s Supper is the gospel on display of believers continuing to trust in and depend on Christ’s death and resurrection to sustain their Christian lives. If you are not able to attend in person worship this week, please join us for our worship service by live stream through the CHBC Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/chbcokc/. We are providing seating in the Activity Center for Sunday School and Worship services, and we are asking that any who attend in the Activity Center wear a face covering.
In the Worship Center we are continuing to seat by physically distancing (seating every other row and leaving a 3-chair gap between family units, as well as taking extra steps in cleaning and sanitizing. You are more than welcome to wear a face covering at all times.
