CHBC Worship for 3/21/21
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. Why do we make such a big deal about preaching the Bible? Wouldn’t more people “attend church” if we did something more entertaining on Sundays? The gathering of believers is not to be entertained, or to try to entertain someone else. When the church gathers it is to be reminded of the grace of the gospel, which pours out of the pages of Holy Scripture. A Christian is sustained by the gospel, just like our bodies need air to breathe, and food to eat.
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.

A Moment in Church History
On March 18, 1980: A group of Muslim students attack a Christian student at the University of Alexandria, in Egypt. They tell him to renounce his faith in Christ or be killed. He refuses and then beat him until he is unconscious, and with a broken arm. You can read more about what has happened in church history here: Today in Church History.
Thank God for His faithfulness today to you, and for others.
“Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that you will abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.”
