Pastor Marks Weekly Update February 8, 2019

 

Grateful

God has been good as we have walked the journey of my father’s passing, and having his celebration service.  There are many things God has done to show us that He is with us.  We have definitely felt the prayers of our friends and church family.  These are the moments that you realize your faith better be real, and it is a time that you see what a blessing it is to be part of a local church.  Thank you, dear church family.  So many emails, texts, and phone calls have come our way.  And many even came to Borger to be present.  What a blessed surprise!  Thank you for loving my family well!  We love CHBC and are thankful to be able to serve the Lord with you.

 

Resolutions

Are you living your life intentionally?  Do you think about living daily for the glory of God?  Jonathan Edwards as a young man thought carefully about how to make his life count most for God’s glory, not self-gratification.  To assist himself he wrote out resolutions to guide his daily thinking.  “Resolved, never to lose one moment of time; but improve it the most profitable way I possibly can.” 

 

Marriage Dinner

See below, or click the link to get details and register for our 2nd Annual 1 Church in 2 Languages Marriage Dinner.  God has a wonderful plan for marriage.  This is a great opportunity to bring friends or relatives that do not attend a church.  Every one who is thinking about marriage or is already married is looking for ways to strengthen their relationship.  Invite someone you are trying to invest in, and even consider paying for them to join you.

 

Knights For Christ – Men’s Retreat

Join us at Falls Creek for March 5-7 to enjoy fellowship and the teaching of the Shepherd’s Conference as we live stream the powerful preaching of an all-star list of pastors and preachers at Grace Community Church in Burbank, California, home church of John MacArthur.  Cost is $75, and you can register online or by giving your money to Pastor Aaron, Brian Boone, or Pastor Mark.

 

VOM

It is not too late to get ready for VOM.  There will be an informational meeting on February 17th to fill out forms, make payment or just find out the details.  Click the title and link to the website for more information.

Pastor Mark's Weekly Update February 1, 2019

 

Prayer

Church, I am calling you to pray for our nation as we have had several states accept or consider abortion up to the moment of birth.  If you did not listen to my sermon on January 20, regarding Sanctity of Human Life, please do so by clicking this link: Pastor Mark’s sermon, “Abortion is About God”.  And, please repent for our land, and ask God to graciously help us reverse the course of our nation.  If you want to think more about this issue listen to Albert Mohler on the The Briefing at this link: Albert Mohler, The Briefing.  This week is Rose Day, so send an email or a letter, or take a Rose to the Capitol on Wednesday and kindly request your representative to work to end abortion in our state.  As a pastoral staff we will be advocating for life at the Capitol this week in honor of Rose Day.  You can read more about Rose Day by clicking this link: Baptist General Convention of Oklahoma, Rose Day Rally.

 

Redecorating

As you arrive Sunday morning you will see that some redecorating of the foyer surrounding the Worship Center is taking place.  We appreciate your patience as this is a work in progress.  We are excited about the fresh new look, just know that the changes are not quite complete.  Enjoy the new look and the changes coming as we continue to try and keep a fresh look and welcome environment to our guests.

 

Super Church

Sunday is Superbowl Sunday.  What does that mean for CHBC and our schedule?  Nothing is changing.  We will have our regular afternoon and evening schedule which includes the 4 PM Power of Kids and 5 PM Equip Classes.  Join us, and then invite some people home with you if you want to watch the rest of the big game.  We are looking forward to another super Sunday of worship and fellowship.

 

Resolutions

January is almost over and I keep seeing these “New Year, New You” ads.  Rather than focus on a few changes at the beginning of the year, I am attempting to give you some things to ponder throughout the year. Do not leave the others behind, but keep considering each new resolution as a way to order your life around godliness.  From the pen of Jonathan Edwards, 1723.

“Resolved, to be endeavoring to find out fit objects of charity and liberality.  Resolved, always to do that, which I shall wish I had done when I see others do it.”

 

Voice of the Martyrs

Each year we take a team of people to experience global missions from our own backyard. Consider your family having the opportunity to learn missions, and serve an organization that is touching the persecuted Christian world every day.  How might this change your perspective and your children’s perspective on the world?  How might we see what is truly important in new light?  What might this do to spark a desire for Spiritual growth and spiritual hunger in you and your children?  See the information slide below, or visit the website to find out the details and register.
